BCCI confirms UAE as T20 World Cup 2021 venue
The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) has confirmed that the 2021 World T20 will be played in UAE. The Board has officially informed the International Cricket Council (ICC) that it would not be able to host the multi-team event in India due to the pandemic. Earlier this month, the ICC has given BCCI time till 28th June to take a call on staging the T20 World Cup. Given the COVID-19 situation in India, BCCI played safe and decided to shift the tournament to UAE. The BCCI will keep the hosting rights of the mega event despite it being played in UAE. The tournament will be played across four venues Dubai, Abu Dhabi, Sharjah and Muscat – between October 17 and November 14.

The ICC in its June 1 meeting said that it would look out for other possible venues in the region if the BCCI agree to shift the tournament to UAE. The decision was taken as UAE only has three venues and ICC does not want the pitches to get exhausted. With Oman having ICC-accredited grounds, it was an automatic choice. It is learned that teams participating in the qualifiers will directly travel to Oman and enter the bio bubble. The main teams will board the flight to the UAE. The tournament is likely to begin from November 17, two days after the IPL final.
