After the IPL 2021 was postponed on Tuesday due to the increasing cases of Covid 19, now in India, the T20 World Cup to be held in October November this year is also under the cloud. Despite the increasing number of corona virus cases in India, the IPL bio bubble should have been impermeable. However, due to the presence of positive cases in half the teams of the IPL, the safe bio-secure capability of the Cricket Board of India has been questioned. However, the T20 World Cup to be held in India is still five months from the start, the Board of Control for Cricket in India, ie BCCI, feels that there is still time. The Board believes that the possibility of forced suspension of the tournament is slim.
The ICC team was scheduled to visit India during the IPL, but due to the epidemic, it canceled its program. Last week, a top BCCI official confirmed that UAE has been retained as a standby venue for the T20 World Cup. BCCI’s general manager of sports development Dheeraj Malhotra had told the BBC in an interview that its (venue) would be the UAE. We hope that this will be organized by the BCCI. So this tournament will be here, it will be done by BCCI.
IPL 2021 Suspend
The T20 World Cup is scheduled to be held in India in October-November. But the second wave of corona is going on in the country at the moment, 3.5 lakh cases are coming from the last few days, about 3000 people are dying. If the situation does not improve, this will be the first time that India will host any international tournament or series outside the country. The BCCI has hosted the IPL abroad twice before this. This includes South Africa in 2009 and UAE in 2020. The 2014 IPL edition was also held in the UAE. However, only a few matches of the league stage were played there. There was talk to organize IPL in UAE this year as well, but a section of BCCI did not agree to it, instead decided to host it in India.
