The maiden Euro T20 Slam, a T20 competition that was set to feature six teams from Ireland, Scotland and Netherlands, has been postponed to 2020 at the last moment just two weeks before the event was set to start. Cricketers like Brendon McCullum, Rashid Khan, Eoin Morgan and Imran Tahir had confirmed their participation for the event, however, the organizers, at the last moment, relucutantly postponed the tournament. 

"The Board of the Euro T20 Slam, funding partners and franchise owners of this exciting new T20 tournament have reluctantly come to the decision that staging of the event will not be possible in 2019," said a tournament spokesman.

"We want to ensure that the inaugural staging of the Euro T20 Slam provides the best springboard to making this a truly flagship event on the global cricket calendar.

"As such, we believe the right course of action is to postpone the Slam to a further date. This will give us the necessary breathing space to ensure we are ready to go."

The Euro T20 Slam 2019 was to have 33 matches from August 30 to September 22, with the games taking place in Dublin, Edinburgh and Amsterdam.
