ICC T20 World Cup Shifted From India To UAE, BCCI Confirms

BCCI Secretary Jay Shah said that the new dates will be decided by the ICC.

BCCI President Sourav Ganguly confirmed on Monday that ICC T20 World Cup that was scheduled to start in October in India has been officially shifted to the UAE.

“We have officially intimated the ICC that the T20 World Cup can be shifted to the United Arab Emirates. The details are being chalked out,” Ganguly said. “The decision was taken keeping health safety concerns of all stakeholders in mind.”

The marquee event was originally slated to be held in India.

The mega-event is to be held in October-November but BCCI will remain as the hosts.

There were speculations over the fate of the high-profile event considering the prevailing COVID-19 situation in India. The BCCI had asked for more time from the International Cricket Council (ICC) before taking a call on the venue for the event.

ICC had then given BCCI a four-week window to decide whether it can host the event in India.

The new schedule of the tournament is yet to be finalized. BCCI Secretary Jay Shah said that the new dates will be decided by the ICC.
