New Delhi: Sri Lanka and the United Arab Emirates are being zeroed in by the ICC to back-up two countries if India are unable to host next year’s T20 World Cup.
While there is one year left before the mega event to be held in Australia this year, it was postponed due to the increasing cases of COVID-19 and the host country’s inability to manage 16 teams.
According to a report by ESPN Cricinfo, “Sri Lanka and the UAE are one of the back-up venue for the 2021 Men’s T20 World Cup, the Kovid-19 pandemic should make India an unstable host.”
The ICC confirmed last week that India would schedule next year’s tournament in the original Future Tours program, while this year’s postponed edition in Australia would go ahead in 2022.
However, for any global program, listing the back-up menu is a standard protocol.
“Identifying potential back-up venoms is standard practice for each ICC event, but it holds additional significance at this time due to the nature of the epidemic.
“India is currently the third worst country in the world in terms of cases. According to most data studies, there have been over 2 million cases and over 45,000 deaths so far.
The website continued, “The current situation has forced the BCCI to move the IPA to the UAE, and has only temporary plans for the domestic season.”
No BCCI is currently willing to comment on the issue as there is a long way to go before the tournament starts.
