T20 WC: Delhi to host 2 Pakistan ties

The final of the T20 World Cup 2021 will be held at the Narendra Modi Stadium in Ahmedabad, the BCCI decided in the apex council meeting on 17 April

Delhi is likely to host two of Pakistan’s matches in the 2021 ICC T20 World Cup to be held in India in -November, it has been learned.

While the details are yet to be confirmed, the Indian cricket board‘s (BCCI) Apex Council was on 17 April informed that the board has received assurance on visas for Pakistan cricket team and media for the upcoming mega tournament.

There is still no certainty on Pakistan’s participation as the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) has demanded visas not just for its cricket team and media but also for the fans.

While the 1.1 lakh-capacity Narendra Modi Stadium in Ahmedabad will host the final, Mumbai and Kolkata have been slotted for the semi-finals. Dharamsala has been earmarked to host a knockout match.

“Pakistan will play two of their matches in Delhi which is not hosting any knockout game as per the tentative schedule that has been discussed,” confirmed a source. “While Ahmedabad will host the final, Mumbai and Kolkata will host the semi-finals.”

The cricket board has earmarked certain venues for the 16-team tournament although a confirmation will come later as the country reels under severe Covid-19 pandemic that has seen daily number of the affected persons cross 2 lakh over the past few days.

Other than Delhi, Mumbai, Kolkata, Ahmedabad and Dharamsala, Lucknow, Hyderabad, Bengaluru and Chennai have been earmarked to host matches.

There are 45 matches slated to be held in the tournament that will see the participation of 16 teams, including Papua New Guinea, the Netherlands, Oman, Scotland, Namibia and Oman.

Meanwhile, the Pakistan cricket team, led by Babar Azam, will have no difficulty in travelling to India for the ICC T20 World Cup in as the government is set to grant visas to the players from the neighbouring nation. It has been learnt that BCCI secretary Jay Shah has informed the Apex Council about government’s decision on giving visas to the Pakistan players.

“The issue of Pakistan cricket team has been sorted. However whether the fans can travel across the border to watch matches is still not clear,” an Apex Council member said.
