ICC  (International Cricket Council) is looking at Sri Lanka and UAE as a backup host for ICC T20 World Cup 2021. T20 World Cup 2020 was scheduled to take place in Australia this year but the coronavirus pandemic forced the host nation to opt out.

ICC, last week confirmed that India will be hosting the 2021 T20 World Cup as per schedule while the 2020 T20 World Cup is now postponed to 2022.

This is standard protocol of ICC to keep back up venues listed for any global event, but this time it becomes more important seeing the rise in coronavirus cases in India. T20 World Cup will take place next year, but ICC needs to ensure that there is no block in the midway.

Sri Lanka has hosted two ODI World Cups jointly with India and Pakistan in 1996 and India and Bangladesh in 2011 and a T20 World Cup in 2012 while UAE (United Arab Emirates) is the new big emerging host. The country is on the way to become one of the global centres of Cricket. In past UAE has hosted Asia Cup, PSL. IPL 13 is also scheduled to take place in UAE.

However there is very less possibility of India not hosting the T20 cricket world cup. The last T20 World Cup in 2016 also took place in India. In past India has hosted ICC tournaments in 1996, 2011, 2016. The 2023 ODI World Cup is also scheduled to take place India. The market value and the viewership automatically increases when a Global event is organised in India. For Broadcasters India is always the first choice.

India is now the third most affected county by Covid-19. More than 23,60,358 people are infected by the virus, while 46,536 people have lost their lives.
