The BCCI has stressed that India is ready to host the same tournament in 2021, five years after hosting its last ICC game – the 2016 Men’s T20 World Cup. The International Cricket Council (ICC) and the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) have teamed up to announce a new brand identity for the 16 participating teams in Dubai with only 12 months to go for the final of the ICC Men’s T20 World Cup 2021 which is scheduled India.
After the postponement of the 2020 edition, India was confirmed as the tournament’s host earlier this year. Due to COVID-19, Australia had to cancel this year’s edition and the country was awarded the host of the 2022 T20 World Cup.
ICC Chief Executive Manu Sawhney: “With Diwali just two days away and with the countdown to the tournament in India underway, this is an opportune moment to unveil our brand identity that so wonderfully reflects the vibrant festival of lights.
“We are working very closely with the BCCI to deliver a stellar tournament bringing the world’s best players together to go head to head in the first global cricket event since the advent of the pandemic. Our focus will be on staging a safe and secure event that fans from across the world can enjoy.”
“Our compliments to the BCCI, the teams and the Emirates Cricket Board for successfully managing the Dream 11 Indian Premier League in a safe and secure manner. We will continue to take the learnings from this and other Members who have staged international cricket into our planning.”
Honorary Secretary, BCCI Jay Shah: “The BCCI will leave no stone unturned in ensuring that the health and safety of everyone concerned in this showpiece event is taken care of. While we are determined to provide a rich cricket-viewing experience, I would also like to assure the ICC and Member Boards that India is known for its warm hospitality and we will make you feel at home. In these times of pandemic when there are severe restrictions, the BCCI believes in the policy of innovating and adapting, and I am confident that we will overcome every challenge.”
BCCI President Sourav Ganguly: “It is a matter of great honour for us to be hosting the ICC Men’s T20 World Cup. India has successfully staged several global events since the ICC Men’s Cricket World Cup in 1987and I am sure cricketers from around the world would be excited at the prospect of playing in our cricket-loving country.
“I have enjoyed being part of ICC events as a player and know from experience that nothing beats the buzzing atmosphere of a global cricket event with millions around the world watching every game. I now look forward to playing my part as an administrator as we prepare to host the prestigious event.”
Since the highly popular ICC Women’s T20 World Cup this year, the seventh edition of the Men’s T20 World Cup will be the first global cricket event.
The Women’s event at the Melbourne Cricket Ground on International Women’s Day ended with a record 86,174 people attending the Australia-India final.
