Once again the biggest domestic tournament of India, IPL affect the world biggest tournament T20 World Cup. T20 world cup to kick off on October 17 just after 2 days of the world largest or most entertaining tournament of India IPL 2021 final.
Now T20 world cup started on October 17 in UAE, the final of the World T20 scheduled for November 14. UAE now a very busy cricket tournament schedule because firstly they host IPL 2021 and just after 2 days from the Final of IPL 2021 they will start hosting and organizing the T20 world cup. Meanwhile, the IPL begins on September 19 and culminates on October 15 which means the big tournament begins within 48 hours of the IPL Final.
The first round of the tournament will be split into two groups and will be held in UAE and Oman.
The report states further: “Round 1, which will include 12 matches, will comprise eight teams from which four (top two from each group) would qualify for the Super 12s. Four teams from this lot of eight – Bangladesh, Sri Lanka, Ireland, Netherlands, Scotland, Namibia, Oman, Papua New Guinea – will then progress to the Super 12s, joining the top eight ranked T20I teams.”
The Super 12s phase, comprising 30 matches, is scheduled to start from October 24. The Super 12s, where teams will be split across two groups of six each, will be played at three venues in the UAE – Dubai, Abu Dhabi, and Sharjah. This will be followed by three playoff games – the two semi-finals and the final.”
Round 1 is organized in UAE and Oman but in Round 2 all matches are restricted or completely organized in UAE. BCCI is sure that it will prepare fresh pitches in the UAE ahead of the Super 12s. Earlier a BCCI official told PTI that the Board had informed the ICC about its inability to host T20 World Cup in India ‘internally.’
Now UAE is a good backup option for all boards because of the stadium, facilities, etc. Now this time they also added Oman, now T20 world cup will be hosted in the fourth venue, apart from Abu Dhabi, Dubai, and Sharjah, for the tournament.
“Yes, the BCCI, during the ICC board meeting, has formally asked for a four-week window to take a final call but, internally, they have said that they would like to keep the hosting rights and wouldn’t mind the tournament being held in UAE and Oman,” a senior board official, privy to ICC board developments, told PTI on the condition of anonymity.
