BCCI secretary Jay Shah, on Thursday, took to his social media handle to share pictures of the T20 World Cup launch ceremony. He made his presence felt in the ceremony along with prominent names like H.E. Sheikh Nahayan Mabarak Al Nahyan, Mr Khalid Al Zarooni, and some other ICC officials.
The T20 World Cup 2021 was originally scheduled to take place in India. However, the unpredictability of the third wave in the country forced the BCCI to change the venue of the event. BCCI would still host the tournament but it will be held in UAE and Oman. The showpiece is scheduled to take place in different venues in these two countries.
“Launched the @T20WorldCup Trophy with H.E. Sheikh Nahayan Mabarak Al Nahyan, Mr Khalid Al Zarooni and @ICC officials in Dubai. The @EmiratesCricket will be home away from home for @BCCI in the upcoming T20 World Cup #Strongertogether“, Jay Shah wrote on his Twitter handle.
The T20 World Cup is all set to begin from 17th October to November 10. Recently, India wicket-keeper, Dinesh Karthik predicted his two favourites to win the T20 World Cup. In a video posted on the ICC website, Dinesh Karthik predicted India and West Indies to reach the finals.
“I am not going to go all the way to who is going to win, but I will tell you this: I would love to see [a] India vs. West Indies final. I think my second favourite team after India would definitely be West Indies only for the flair of the cricket that they play. I think in this format, they love it, it brings out the best in them, and I would love to see West Indies in the final.”
India is currently playing the fourth Test against England at the Oval Cricket Ground. They haven’t got to a great start to their innings. At the time of writing, India has lost 2 wickets for 32 runs with Virat and Pujara at the crease.
