The World Cup is slated for February and March next year. But next year’s World Cup will be followed by next year’s IPL. Therefore, Star Sports, which has broadcasting rights, is worried about whether Twenty20 cricket will dominate the audience. This will also affect India’s tour of India in February-March next year. Star Sports is the official broadcaster of ICC matches, IPL and India.
Another possibility is that Australia will pay for the 2021 Twenty20 World Cup in India and host the Twenty20 World Cup in India in 2022. BCCI, however, has a different view on this.
Another option is to host this year’s Twenty20 World Cup in Australia. There are no other ICC tournaments expected in 2022, which is expected to be possible.
