ICC leaning towards T20 World Cup in UAE

BCCI will retain hosting rights if move materialises; have until June 28 to decide their position

The ICC is heavily leaning towards moving the 2021 men’s T20 World Cup to the UAE. They have even shortlisted a third country in the middle east as a potential venue in case the tournament is moved out of India. Last year, the ICC allocated the BCCI to host the 16-country tournament in India between mid-October and November 14.

ESPNcricinfo has learned that on Tuesday the ICC Board granted the BCCI time until June 28 to decide on their position after receiving a request from the Indian board president Sourav Ganguly. However, internally the ICC Board is understood to have concluded that it would be safer to host the tournament in the UAE, while allowing the BCCI to retain the hosting rights.

“The ICC Board has requested management focus its planning efforts for the ICC Men’s T20 World Cup 2021 on the event being staged in the UAE with the possibility of including another venue in the Middle East,” the ICC said in a media release on Tuesday. “A final decision on the host country will be taken later this month. The Board also confirmed that the BCCI will remain the hosts of the event regardless of where the event is played.”

The 19-year-old Trinidad & Tobago quick could make his Test debut despite having played just one first-class match

Jayden Seales has played just one first-class match, but the 19-year-old quick has impressed the West Indies selectors enough to be drafted into the 13-man shortlist for the first Test against South Africa. It’s already “a dream come true” for Seales, and he is hoping for more.

“Firstly, it’s a dream come true being in the set-up. Being in the final 13 obviously was a goal of mine,” he said in a press interaction. “Just a matter of me now hoping that I get to play the first Test match and do my best for the team.”

The Trinidad & Tobago bowler made his first-class debut last December, turning out for West Indies A in New Zealand, where he picked up one wicket.
