India is set to host the T20 World Cup in October-November. However, given the holocaust caused by COVID-19 in the country, the chances of staging the T20 extravaganza in India looks gloomy, at-least for now. However, the BCCI is keen to host the marquee event in India. The board members will meet on May 29 to decide the fate of the T20 World Cup. A BCCI source revealed that India is still the primary option to host the T20 World Cup. However, he emphasized the fact that if the board decide to move the tournament out of India, then UAE is the next best option.

“Right now, India is the host venue for the World Cup. That’s how the Board is seeing it. If things go awry again, then a call will be taken only after the month of June. And yes, UAE is the second option,” a BCCI source was quoted as saying by the Times of India.Here’s our quick parimatch review india. do check it here in our website.

The BCCI is also looking to find a window to conduct the remaining matches of the IPL. Several reports stated that BCCI has requested ECB to cut short the England-India Test series to make a window for the IPL. If ECB agrees, IPL could take place in England. This will also allow English counties to make some profits.

“BCCI and the ECB are in discussions to tweak the five-Test series. Details of those discussions aren’t public yet. But in whichever manner the ECB agrees to tweak the Test series, they will want the IPL in England because the counties can earn from it. There’ll be a good chance of a quid pro quo,” the source in the know said according to the Times of India

BCCI could also think about staging the IPL in UAE or Sri Lanka. The source further confirmed that while England is the prime contender to host the IPL, UAE and Sri Lanka can’t be discounted. We are cricket betting tips guru. Learn more  about us.

“Only if costs are escalating to a point where it starts affecting stakeholders, the BCCI will consider the UAE as the second option for the IPL. On that front, we aren’t even discounting the idea of hosting the IPL in Sri Lanka,” the sources further added.
