He said that all types of security will be provided to the 15 teams coming to India.

Jay Shah said that BCCI will leave no stone unturned in providing health related facilities in the tournament. I am confident that we will overcome every challenge. He said that the challenges in the Corona period are difficult. But I would like to assure the ICC that BCCI will do its best to adapt itself to these circumstances.

Different challenge as an administrator

At the same time, BCCI President Sourav Ganguly says that organizing the World Cup will be a different challenge for him.

Ganguly said, ‘I have enjoyed myself as a player in ICC events. I know that the atmosphere of these events is very exciting because the crores of people are watching you. But this time I am ready to play my role and responsibility as an administrator. We are ready to host the World Cup 2021.

On that note Manu Sawhney, the Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of the ICC, says that his focus is on making the tournament safe so that the world can enjoy it. Sahni also congratulated BCCI for making the IPL a success in the United Arab Emirates. He said that this will help us in making the tournament like World Cup a success.

16 teams will participate in 2021 World Cup

Apart from India, Pakistan, Australia, England, New Zealand, South Africa, Sri Lanka, West Indies, Bangladesh, Afghanistan, Ireland, Namibia, Netherlands, Oman, Papua New Guinea and Scotland will participate in the 2021 T20 World Cup in India.

Let us tell you that in 2020 and 2021 there were to be 2 consecutive T20 World Cups. Australia was to host the 2020 World Cup, but it was postponed due to the Covid-19. The tournament will now be held in 2022. The ICC announced this in August this year. Earlier, India hosted the T20 World Cup in 2016, which was won by the West Indies.
