The ICC also cleared its stance on IPL finishing just before the T20 World Cup starts stating there is no mandatory gap required between the two events. “We will release the dates and venue of T20 World Cup only in July. We cannot comment on it as of now. But there is no rule on the need of a gap ahead of an ICC event. The ICC needs 10 days to prepare the pitch and the ground ahead of an event. That too is a norm and not a rule.” said an ICC official.

When quizzed further if players will be worn out due to little gap between the conclusion of IPL and the T20 World Cup. Shukla added that a small gap will not be a problem as such as the initial round of the global matches involves non-Test playing nations.
