 The News Cover: In June, the ICC had given the BCCI that was supposed to host the T20 tournament in India amidst the rising covid cases, 4-weeks to decide whether or not they want to move the tournament to another location. BCCI Chief Sourav Ganguly on 28th June said that the T20 World Cup is now be held in UAE & Oman. The decision was taken to keep the players and staff safe during the tournament. 

Even though the matches have been moved to the UAE & Oman, the BCCI will continue to be the host of the tournament. The matches will be played in across 4 cricket grounds. The matches will be in UAE's Dubai, Abu Dhabi, and Sharjah, and also Oman. T20 World Cup will be starting on the 17th of October and the last will be played on the 14th of November. The IPL will also be held in UAE from September 19 to October 15. 

However, immediately after the IPL, the T20 world cup will also be held. Once IPL ends on October 15, the T20 world cup will be on 17 October. This would prove to be a big headache for the BCCI. Another problem is that because of IPL and T20 World Cup, many players may not be available for the matches. England & Australia have already made it clear that it will not release the players for the IPL. We will have to see what happens next.
