ICC T20 World Cup 2021 will remain hosted by BCCI (Board of Control for Cricket in India), but the hosting country has been switched. Now, United Arab Emirates (UAE) and Oman is to host the 7th edition of ICC Men’s T20 World Cup 2021. The Covid-19 outbreak around the world ended up canceling the T20 WC a year later. Previously, India was hosting country but due to the Covid-19, ICC shifted the tournament while India still owned all the official broadcaster rights. In preparation for the T20 world cup, many teams have already begun practicing.
According to BCCI President Sir Saurav Ganguly, world cup games cannot be played in Australia after Australia backed off from organizing the tournament, due to Covid-19. So it’s been relocated. There will be two grounds in UAE and Oman to host India’s 2021 ICC T20 World Cup. The tournament starts on October 17 with a first-round match between Oman and PNG, and the final scheduled for 14th of November.
