After the current season of IPL 2021 (IPL 2021 Suspended), the T20 World Cup can also be shifted. The BCCI is considering holding the tournament in the UAE in November amid fears of a third wave of Kovid-19.

New Delhi. IPL 2021 (IPL 2021) has been suspended (IPL 2021 Suspended) amid a growing case of Corona (Covid-19). Now the BCCI can shift UAE to the T20 World Cup to be held in the country in October-November this year. The third wave of Corona is expected to be expressed in September. In such a situation, it is very difficult to see the players of 16 teams. However, the tournament will be conducted by the BCCI itself. The ICC has already expressed concern.

BCCI officials recently held discussions with some top officials of the central government and it has been largely agreed to hold the tournament in the UAE. The tournament is to be played at nine places, which have not been announced yet. BCCI sources said, “The suspension of the IPL within four weeks is an indication that while the country is facing its worst health crisis in the last 70 years, hosting such a global competition would not be safe.”. ‘

Third-wave warning in September

He said, ‘India is expected to have a third wave in November (of Kovid-19). So the BCCI will remain host, but the tournament will probably be held in the UAE. ‘Health experts have warned of a third wave in India in September. The situation in India is still critical and more than three lakh cases are being reported every day for some time, due to which most cricket boards are worried. In such a situation, the International Cricket Council (ICC) will not take any risk regarding the safety of international cricket teams.

The final decision will be taken in the ICC meeting to be held in June

Another source said, ‘If you decide that the situation is not normal, then no country would want to visit India for the next six months. If another wave comes, the players and their families will be very cautious. Therefore, it is expected that the BCCI will agree to organize the tournament in the UAE. ”He said that after the suspension of the IPL, BCCI officials do not want to take any kind of risk. The ICC meeting is scheduled to be held in June, in which the final decision will be taken, but the possibility of holding the tournament in India after the postponement of IPL is slim.
