T20 World Cup.
Both the BCCI president, Sourav Ganguly, and the league secretary, Jay Shah, stand beside the trophy with the T20 World Cup.

As a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, the ICC has granted BCCI until June 28 to decide whether the T20 World Cup will be held in India or not.

Cricket’s governing body, the ICC, has given the BCCI until June 28 to decide whether or not India will host the highly anticipated T20 World Cup amid the potential threat posed by the COVID-19 pandemic. The ICC board met in-person on Tuesday, with India represented by Sourav Ganguly, the BCCI president, and Jay Shah, the secretary. T20 World Cup cricket is scheduled to begin in October and November of 2014. As reported by PTI, the BCCI requested for a month to examine the nation’s health situation after the devastating second wave of the raging pandemic.

“The ICC board agreed to the BCCI’s request and agreed to give the Indian cricket board time until June 28 to decide whether or not to host the T20 World Cup in India. A detailed plan will be presented to the board at the next meeting, “On Tuesday, a credible source with knowledge of the ICC Board told PTI.

The event may be held in the UAE after it finishes hosting the IPL because the BCCI is unable to host it in India due to the possibility of a third wave of the pandemic.

There is a possibility that BCCI could keep hosting rights in that situation. In case October-November in India does not work, the BCCI is thinking of two more windows in 2022.

“The BCCI is enthusiastic about having a worldwide tournament in India. They are unwilling to release it. Two additional windows for the ICC’s Board of Directors are currently being investigated. It is February 2022, but it could also coincide with the ICC Women’s 50 over World Cup, which is taking place during the same month. This may be a little difficult “According to an ICC board member,

“The other alternative is to attempt this experiment in June after the next IPL but you must locate a city or cities that aren’t in the path of the monsoons at that time. And can you have another T20 World Cup in Australia within four months? “a member of the ICC questioned.

In addition, it is discovered that the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) claims that a waiver of approximately Rs 900 crore in taxes is under discussion with the government and the board will be kept informed of any developments.

Despite reservations raised by ICC chairman Greg Barclay during an earlier media interaction with newswire services, the World Test Championship, which faced a lot of difficulties in its inaugural edition due to the COVID-19 pandemic, will continue during the next eight-year cycle between 2023-2031.

“The upcoming eight-year cycle between 2023 and 2031 will see World Test Championship participate in four more editions. The board believes that World Test Championship has established Test cricket as a context for a broader audience, which will lead to greater engagement among young people “ICC Board member commented on it.

The final of the inaugural World Test Championship, which will be held in Southampton from June 18-22, will pit India and New Zealand against each other.
