Highly-placed sources in the International Cricket Council have confirmed the news.
“Yes, it is true that we are skipping with World T20 edition in 2018. Look, no venue was decided. The primary reason is there are too many bilateral series happening between member nations. It was not possible to schedule the tournament in 2018,” an influential ICC source told PTI.

However, after giving a miss to the highly celebrated tournament on 2018, ICC decided to bring back the tournament on 2020. But with the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic, the 2020 T20 world cup has been further postponed to happen on October 2021 in Australia.
So it will be a big wait for the tournament which has been highly celebrated for over a decade.
It’s India who won the inaugural edition of the tournament on 2007 under MS Dhoni.
With Pakistan and Australia too, have won the T20 World Cup once, West Indies had been the most consistent team in the shorter version of the game, who has won it two times so far, and ultimately they are the defending Champions.
