The final decision will come today on where the T20 World Cup 2021 will be held. It is believed that the 2021 World Cup will not be held in India and there is every possibility of it going to UAE. However, the final announcement has not been made by the BCCI yet. Today the final decision will come on this. When the ICC meeting was held on June 1, then BCCI was given time only for June 28, which is today. That is, the time given by the ICC, that period is now being fulfilled. So the final decision will be taken today. The BCCI may not have made an official announcement, but BCCI secretary Jay Shah had given an idea of it while saying his word in the past.
BCCI Sachin Jay Shah had said that due to the situation of Kovid in the country, we can move the T20 World Cup 2021 to be held in India to UAE. He said that we are closely monitoring the situation. He said that the health and safety of the players is above all for us and we will take a final decision on it soon. That is, now it is almost clear that the World Cup event will not be held in India. The official announcement of BCCI is yet to come.
Let us tell you that the T20 World Cup will start from 17 October and will run till 14 November. At the same time, it is also almost clear that the T20 World Cup will not be held in India but in the UAE. Earlier some media reports claimed that the first few matches would be played in Oman. The T20 World Cup will start two days later with eight teams Bangladesh, Sri Lanka, Ireland, Netherlands, Scotland, Namibia, Oman, Papua New Guinea. Four of these teams will fight for a place in the Super-4. It is said that Round 1 elimination matches will be held in UAE as well as Oman. The T20 World Cup was to be held in India itself, but due to Corona virus, it is not possible. Right now, the cases of corona virus in India have been less than before, but in the meantime a third wave is also being feared. In such a situation, BCCI does not want to take any risk.
