ICC, BCCI in talks with Oman Cricket over hosting some T20 World Cup 2021 matches

International Cricket Council and the BCCI are in talks with Oman Cricket over hosting of some of the T20 World Cup matches later this year in the gulf nation.

The ICC had, earlier this week, given BCCI a month’s time to show its readiness to host the tournament in October-November.
With India’s chances to host it unlikely due to an expected third wave of Covid-19 pandemic, the world body has started to look at a venue besides UAE which is already on standby.

Oman Cricket secretary Madhu Jesrani has confirmed that “the talks with BCCI have just started and we have told them that we are ready. We have two turf pitch grounds, including one with floodlights”.

Oman is one of 16 participating nations at this year’s T20 World Cup and cricket in the country is run entirely by an Indian origin business family of Khimji Ramdas.
