The upcoming T20 World Cup has been shifted to UAE from India, according to a report by ESPNCricinfo.
The world event is scheduled to begin from October 17 with the final being held on November 14.
It was originally scheduled to be held in India in October-November this year. But the scale of India's COVID-19 crisis had been fueling speculation for weeks that it would have to be shifted.
"As per the current plan, the first round of the T20 World Cup will be split across two groups and played in the UAE and Oman," read the report.
Besides, the remainder of IPL, which was suspended in May, will resume from September 19 in UAE and the T20 World Cup will begin just days after the IPL final.
