Amid growing corona cases in India, the Board of Control for Cricket in India is confident that the T20 World Cup will be held in India in October. However, it can be done in five cities instead of 09. The tradition is that the ICC keeps the backup option ready and for the last one year that option is the UAE. & Nbsp; The IPL is currently in the bio bubble, but the real challenge before the BCCI is to make the T20 World Cup in adverse conditions. ;
A senior board official said, "We hope that now it is five months and if people are getting vaccines then the World Cup will be held in India. It could be that matches are in four or five cities instead of 09 cities."
An ICC inspection team was to come to Delhi on 26 April to take stock of the IPL’s bio bubble, but had to postpone the tour due to a ban on traveling to India. The officer said, "That team was supposed to come this week. But they will come later as the travel ban is implemented."& nbsp;
BCCI General Manager (Sports Development) Dheeraj Malhotra told the BBC on Friday that the UAE option had been kept. & nbsp; The Board official said that UAE is always the second option under the convention. & nbsp; He said, ICC is always an option for tournaments and UAE is the option after it was decided at the ICC meeting last year.
Dheeraj said, "There is nothing new in that. If the conditions remain the same in the next five months, then another plan will have to be prepared."& nbsp; In Sri Lanka, Bangladesh or other countries, the ICC T20 World Cup takes place in three or four cities but in India it is not possible due to board politics. & nbsp;
World Cup 2011 and T20 World Cup The board official, who was associated with the 2016 event, said, "Here is the city (Kolkata) of Board President Saurav Ganguly, the city of Vice President Rajiv Shukla (Lucknow), the city of Secretary Jai Shah (Ahmedabad) and the city of Treasurer Arun Dhumal (Dharamshala). Apart from this, there are also Mumbai, Chennai, Delhi, Bangalore and Hyderabad."
