The ICC T20 World Cup to be held this year will now be held in the United Arab Emirates. However, the Board of Control for Cricket in India was given time till 28th of this month by the ICC to respond. BCCI has to answer whether it will be able to organize the T20 World Cup in India this year or not. At the same time, there are reports that due to Corona, the T20 World Cup can also be shifted to UAE. It is being told that the matches of the World Cup will be played in Abu Dhabi, Sharjah and Dubai.
These two reasons became a hindrance
The BCCI was very excited to organize the T20 World Cup in India this year, but due to two reasons, now this tournament can be shifted to the UAE. According to the report, in view of the situation of Corona, the government did not allow BCCI to be given relaxation at home. Apart from this, after the postponement of IPL 2021, the BCCI is also worried about how many international players will return to India. The T20 World Cup will be held from October 17 to November 14 and 16 countries will participate in this tournament.

BCCI in profit even after tournament shift
According to the report, all the state associations have been informed about the T20 World Cup shifting to UAE in a virtual meeting a few days back. However, even after the tournament shifts to UAE, BCCI will have a huge advantage. Shifting the tournament will give the board a chance to save 41 per cent of its earnings. Had the World Cup been held in India, the board would have had to pay a hefty amount as tax.

Tax exemption was not available even before
In the year 2016, when India organized the T20 World Cup, even then the board did not get tax exemption. It is being told that the BCCI had already selected UAE as an alternate venue. At the same time, the board was trying to get tax exemption from the government machinery, but it could not happen even after several requests. After this the BCCI decided to move to the UAE.
