To be announced (TBA) or declared (TBD): specifics may have been determined but are not yet ready for public disclosure. The organizer of a tournament or competition reserves the right to announce additional rules or changes to existing rules at any time prior to the start of the event.
TBD stands for To Be Declared. This term is used by organizers when they do not know the final list of participants ahead of time. For example, an international sports league might say that the final list of participating teams will be announced "to ensure equal opportunity" among countries. Or, a national organization might say they will announce their new leader "to bring attention to his leadership skills." While these examples are extreme, many organizations use TBDS when they want to include some but not all members of a group. For example, an Olympic committee might say they will announce the final list of participants "as soon as possible" to avoid discrimination against potential candidates who were not able to meet the initial deadline.
TBDS can also be used by organizers as a way to conceal negative information about a participant team. For example, an international sports federation might suspend a country for violating human rights laws or corruption allegations would damage a player's reputation - both situations could cause them to lose interest in participating in future events.
TBA vs. TBC, TBR, or TBP-details may have been determined and perhaps announced, but are still susceptible to change before being finalized. As a result, these titles are also known as TBA titles. Details may have been determined and perhaps announced, but are still susceptible to change before being finalized.
TBA means "to be announced." This is usually done when there is not enough information available to make a decision about who will win. For example, when a fight has not been fought to a finish, it can be said that the winner has not been determined yet. When a boxer claims a title without having even won a bout, he or she is saying that they believe they deserve a title shot, but haven't been given one yet. As long as there is no clear winner, the match is listed as TBA.
TBC stands for "to be confirmed." This means that although the fight has been agreed upon, there is some uncertainty as to whether it will actually take place. If, for example, one side refuses to show up for the fight, then it would be considered TBC from that point on.
TBD = To Be Determined TBC = To be confirmed/Selected TBC or TBD can be used to refer to a place, a date, a time, or a team. If any of these are uncertain at the time of schedule announcement or at the present moment, websites will use TBD or TBC for a cricket match/series.
Examples: "We reserve the right to cancel tickets that are sold under TBC." "The ICC has yet to select teams for next year's World Cup TBC." "India will play South Africa in a 1-off Test Match in Cape Town from January 4th TBC."
These matches/series have not been confirmed by either side yet, so they are all listed as TBD or TBC.
You often hear about games being cancelled due to issues with security or because one team wants to avoid an away series. But some matches also get cancelled for more random reasons. For example, a rain-affected game might be declared a no-result after both teams have batted, without anyone having asked for it to be cancelled. In such cases, it is up to the organisers to decide what to do with the remaining one-day match/series if there is no clear winner. Usually, points are awarded based on how far each team was ahead or behind before the game was cancelled. The team that is winning most of its matches usually wins the tournament/series.
This implies that the teams who will compete in these matches will be determined once the group stage is completed. However, it is possible that one or both of these games could be cancelled due to various reasons such as poor weather conditions or unrest in the host country.
The Cricket World Cup has been cancelled twice before. In 1987, the tournament was cancelled after several of its participants refused to play South Africa. In 1999, following the death of India's former prime minister Rajiv Gandhi, who was being worshipped as a national hero, the tournament was also cancelled.
In 2007, the CWC was again cancelled because of security concerns in Pakistan following the mass murder of Pakistani civilians by the nuclear-armed state's most powerful army general. The Cricket World Cup Committee decided not to go ahead with the tournament because of threats from militants to target foreign players and staff members involved in the event.
In 2013, the CWC was cancelled again after the Indian government banned large gatherings in response to protests across the country against a new citizenship law.
The 2015 ICC Cricket World Cup started on February 14, when Australia played England in Melbourne. The tournament ended on November 15 when Ireland played India in Dublin.
To be verified by official AFL statement. This means that the news is still being confirmed by the Australian Football League and no official announcement has been made yet.
TBC stands for "to be confirmed". It is used when information about an event is not yet available or has not been officially announced. For example, a public appearance by a sports star will often be listed as "TBC" because their promoter or management team cannot confirm whether the person will actually attend or not.
In journalism, TBC usually appears in place of a story on a television newscast or in a newspaper. If a reporter is covering a breaking news story and needs to find out more details, they can do so by contacting their sources, who are likely to know more about what's going on than anyone else at this early stage. If those sources cannot or will not give them additional information, then the reporter will have to make do with what they've been told so far.
Sometimes instead of "TBC", journalists may write "unconfirmed reports". This indicates that the news is not yet confirmed but it is also not denied either.
TBD is a medical abbreviation.

The Football League website states that the 6th round of the 2018-19 season was played on 14 August 2018. The match was played at Old Trafford between Manchester United and Liverpool. It was contested by former players Ryan Giggs and Jamie Carragher. This match was made special because it was being held in honour of former player George Best. He had died earlier that year at the age of 32.
The top four teams from each division will progress to the knockout stage, which is called the "play-off semi-finals". These will be played over two legs, with the team that scores more goals over the two matches progressing to the final. If there is a tie after both matches have been played then extra time will be used to determine who progresses to the next round.
In addition to this, the fifth-placed team in the Premier League will also qualify for the play-offs. They will face the fourth-placed team from either the Championship or the League One in a match that will be played over one leg. The team that scores more goals will progress to the next round.
