ICC T20 World Cup: India Squad, Groups, Team List, All Team Squad, Time Table, Tickets, And Venue. The International Cricket Council (ICC) has announced the fixtures for the much-awaited T20 World Cup 2021. This article will get to know everything about the upcoming 2021 T20 World Cup event, including India’s squad, India’s schedule, groups, team list, all team squad, timetable, tickets, and venue.
Originally, the marquee T20 World Cup event was scheduled to start in 2020. However, due to the Covid-19 pandemic, it was suspended. Also, India was all set to host the tournament. However, the current covid-19 situation of India is not in full control to host big events like T20 World Cup.
So instead of India, it will take place in UAE and OMAN in a total of 4 venues, Muscat, Dubai, Abu Dhabi, and Sharjah. However, The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) will still hold the hosting rights for the event. Notably, UAE has been hosting big events in the pandemic era, so it was the safest place for hosting the marquee World Cup event.
