Ex-Cricketer Reveals World T20 Will be Held in India

Aakash Chopra, former Indian opener and current commentator, claims that it is difficult to hold the ICC World T20 in India as the most likely location for the Mega Event is United Arab Emirates (UAE).

Because of the terrible situation in the world and of a series of COVID-19 cases inside the franchises, the 14th edition of the Indian Premier League was recently postponed. The tournament was constantly postponed, with the League resuming even uncertain about the BCCI. The remainder of the IPL is again regarded as the UAE.

On the other hand, Pakistan's Super League (PSL) is probably going to move to the UAE as well. Recently, the PSL franchises demanded that the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB), as the condition of COVID-19 in the country has not changed, shift the remaining tournament towards UAE.

Aakash Chopra said that under the current conditions there is no chance of the tournament going on in India.

"I don't think this year in India there will be the T20 World Cup. I believe it will be moved to the UAE as the standby venue chosen. I don't believe we can get it [in India] here because of rising incidences," Chopra said.

"Even though we contain it, the people who come in and go from one town to the other are just too exposed to risk. You just can't," he said.

The pandemic has severely hit India, with more than 3 million active cases recorded every 24 hours, with about 300,000 new cases. In Pakistan, on the other hand, over 4 000 cases were reported during the preceding 24 hours during the third wave as well.
