ICC T20 World Cup in India : PCB CEO says, ‘T20 World Cup can be shifted from India to UAE’

The CEO of the PCB Wasim Khan believes that the upcoming T20 world cup could be shifted from India to the UAE as there’s still doubt about the upcoming wave of the covid-19 in India.

Wasim Khan mentioned the possibilities and stated that looking at the current scenario of Covid-19 in India the tournament could be shifted to the UAE.

The confirmation would be out only until April as India also look to host England and organize IPL in the first quarter of 2021.

The responsibility of organizing the 2021 Wolrd Cup has been awarded to India by the ICC and the 2022 edition is given to Australia. Not the forget the 50 over World Cup which will be played in 2023 in India.

Keeping in mind the World T20 in India the PCB still awaits a written confirmation from both ICC and BCCI  regarding issuance of Visas to the Pakistan players and staff. The matter has been handle by the chief of PCB Ehsan Mani who has written to the authorities and await their response.

The Asia Cup which was postponed could be held in June as per the information carried out by Wasim Khan after attending the online meeting of the Asian Cricket Council. The tournament will be hosted by Sri Lanka.

He clearly stated that the upcoming Asia cup will be played in June hosted by Sri Lanka and in 2022 Pakistan would look to host it.

Due to the border tensions between India and Pakistan, the bilateral series is far from reality but Wasim Khan believes that if any world event is hosted in Pakistan it is ICC’s responsibility to make sure all the nations do partici[ate in it.

The authorities expect that cricket relations could seem to get better in the future between India and Pakistan.
