Covid-19 has forced the postponement:

The governing International Cricket Council (ICC) announced on Thursday that three regional qualifying tournaments for the men’s Twenty20 World Cup in Australia next year have been postponed due to the Covid-19 pandemic.

All three tournaments, which were scheduled to take place next month, will now take place in October, with the Asia A qualifiers taking place in Kuwait and the two African events taking place in South Africa.

“Another contributing factor was the visiting teams’ stringent quarantine conditions upon their return to their respective countries.”
An Asian qualifier for next year’s Under-19 World Cup in the West Indies has also been canceled by the governing body.

In a statement, ICC Head of Events Chris Tetley said, “We will continue to track and evaluate all events through our pathway processes, with the ICC’s focus continuing to be to protect the well-being of players, coaches, officials, and fans.”
