IPL 2021 is in the history books, but cricket action will continue in the Middle East with the ICC T20 World Cup 2021 set to begin tomorrow. For the first time in the tournament's history, two associate members of the ICC will host the T20 World Cup.
Initially, the competition was scheduled to take place in India. However, the BCCI decided to shift the T20 World Cup 2021 to the UAE and Oman.
Today T20 World Cup Pitch Report for both Round 1 games is available here.
Three venues in the UAE, namely Sharjah Cricket Stadium, Dubai International Cricket Stadium and Sheikh Zayed Stadium will play host to the Super 12 matches and knockout round. Oman Cricket Academy Ground and Sheikh Zayed Stadium will host the Round 1 of T20 World Cup 2021.
A few weeks ago, ICC Acting CEO Geoff Alldarice announced that fans will be able to attend T20 World Cup 2021 matches live at the stadiums. The authorities will follow all the necessary COVID-19 protocols to ensure everyone's safety.
"We are delighted to be welcoming fans back to international cricket in both Oman and the UAE to enjoy the ICC Men’s T20 World Cup.
