This year's IPL season was put on hold due to the coronavirus pandemic and the BCCI was planning to host the league during the September-October window, however, ICC is yet to announce T20 World Cup's future. 

“It’s at a very preliminary stage but if IPL happens in India and by October, the situation is under control in Mumbai, there are four top-class floodlit grounds available in Mumbai. The logistics for BCCI, broadcasters, maintaining a bio-bubble, everything could be managed smoothly,” another BCCI official told PTI.

Mumbai currently is the worst-hit city in India in terms of coronavirus pandemic with over 31,000 cases. “Everything depends on Covid-19 situation in Mumbai. But if there are no spectators allowed and a bio-bubble is created, then Mumbai won’t be a bad option,” the official said.
