BCCI will ensure a safe T20 WC in 2021: Shah

By The Assam Tribune

DUBAI, Nov 12: The BCCI is committed towards hosting a safe and healthy ICC T20 World Cup next year and �will leave no stone unturned� in its endeavour, board secretary Jay Shah said as the countdown for the much-anticipated event began on Thursday. The ICC T20 World Cup was scheduled in Australia in October-November this year but had to be postponed to 2022 owing to the COVID-19 pandemic. India, however, will be hosting the 2021 edition of the global event as per schedule in October-November.

�The BCCI will leave no stone unturned in ensuring that the health and safety of everyone concerned in this showpiece event is taken care of,� Shah was quoted as saying in an ICC statement. The board secretary promised that all the 15 visiting teams will get a taste of India�s warm hospitality. �While we are determined to provide a rich cricket-viewing experience, I would also like to assure the ICC and Member Boards that India is known for its warm hospitality and we will make you feel at home.�

He also ensured that in these unprecedented times, the BCCI will do everything possible to �innovate and adapt� itself in challenging conditions.

�In these times of pandemic, when there are severe restrictions, the BCCI believes in the policy of innovating and adapting, and I am confident that we will overcome every challenge.�

The seventh edition of the men�s T20 World Cup comes five years after the event was last held in India. It will also be the first global cricket event since the ICC Women�s T20 World Cup in Australia earlier this year.

For BCCI president Sourav Ganguly, it will be a different challenge as an administrator, having played and captained in multiple events as a player.

�I have enjoyed being part of ICC events as a player and know from experience that nothing beats the buzzing atmosphere of a global cricket event with millions around the world watching every game.� � PTI
