While the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) in its recent Annual General Meeting held in Mumbai on Saturday has requested an extension from ICC to decide the hosting of the T20 World Cup 2021, speculations among the cricket veterans and pundits are rife, with each presenting his viewpoint\/ suggestion. Recently, a clash of comments happened between Australian veteran Michael Hussey and the Former Indian captain Sunil Gavaskar regarding the hosting of the ICC T20 World Cup. Gavaskar snubbed Hussey who claimed that it would be very difficult to play T20 World Cup in India. \u201cI think it\u2019s going to be very difficult in my view to play T20 World Cup in India. We\u2019re talking about eight teams in the IPL. I think there are probably a similar number, maybe more teams coming in from overseas for the T20 World Cup, there\u2019d be more venues. As I said earlier, if they\u2019re playing in different cities, that is when the risk goes up,\u201d Hussey said.

He expects Australian players to show the same sympathy and patience as reciprocation. \u201cThe Aussies had no compunction in going ahead with the money-spinning India tour even in cities where they had active Covid cases and again, whether it\u2019s a few hundred compared to hundred thousand cases, the fact is nobody in Australia suggested that the India tour be called off."

Here\u2019s official ICC update UAE as the backup option incase things don\u2019t improve in India Gavaskar answered the lingering questions of all those who were trying to get the prestigious T20 World Cup away from India. He said that the officials are wary of the raging situation in India and would shift the tournament to the UAE if things don\u2019t improve till August. \u201cSo, all that is asked for is a similar sympathetic consideration from all those who are trying to take it away from India. If the situation does not improve by August end then by all means take it to the UAE, the standby location for the event, but please don\u2019t jump the gun now,\u201d Gavaskar wrote in his column for Sportstar.

Yes, India is going through a horrific time with the virus spread but there are still more than four months to go for the mega event. More and more people are getting vaccinated and more and more cities and states are active in trying to control the spread,\u201d Gavaskar added.
