The venue of T20 World Cup Matches have been a shift to UAE Instead of India, from October 17 to November 14

T20 World Cup 2021: The next ICC world event will most likely begin only a day after the culmination of Indian Premier League 2021.

The upcoming seventh edition of the 2021 ICC T-20 World Cup is set to start just one day after the climax of the 14th season of the Indian Premier League.

Much like the IPL 2021, the T-20 World Cup will most likely also be played in the United Arab Emirates. Muscat Cricket Stadium, which was previously in talks about hosting the world event, is set to host the first round, which will feature eight teams battling for four places to join the remaining eight teams for the second round.

In addition to Bangladesh, Sri Lanka, Ireland, the Netherlands, Scotland, Namibia and Papua New Guinea, Oman will also be among the teams that will play the first round. For local fans, the prospect of seeing Oman fight in a global event should be fascinating.

The 2021 T20 World Cup will be played from October 17 to November 14

According to ESPNcricinfo, the 2021 IPL final match will be played on October 15, followed by the World Cup opener on October 17. As for the tournament final, it will be played on November 14.

Readers should note that there is a good chance that one of the UAE venues will co-host the first round alongside Oman. Round 2 (also known as Super 12), which is slated to start from October 24, will take place entirely at three locations in the UAE, namely Abu Dhabi, Sharjah, and Dubai.

In the second round, 12 teams will be split into two groups of six each. The top two teams from both groups will ultimately qualify for the knockout phase which will include two semi-finals and a final match.

Ideally scheduled to be played in India, the 2021 T20 World Cup is almost certain to be moved to the United Arab Emirates due to the uncertainty surrounding COVID-19 in India.
