Khan rejected speculation that the event could be scrapped to make space for the currently suspended Indian Premier League. He said the Pakistan team returns from England on 2nd September so they can have the tournament in September or October. Khan said Pakistan, the original host of the event, had agreed to let Sri Lanka conduct it in return for hosting the next regional event. He also confirmed that the Pakistan board is working on options to play cricket in the window for the T20 World Cup if it doesn’t go ahead as planned in October-November.
