With just over three weeks left for hosting of the 6th edition of the ICC World T20 cricket championship in India, there are many major problems which are yet to be solved by the organisers and various Cricketing Boards.
The stormy clouds are all over the hosting of World T20 as the organisers have not yet released the match tickets; all the venues have not been confirmed as yet; and it is still unclear whether or not the Pakistan and West Indies teams will participate in the championship.
And while most of the venues have been cleared as of now, there is still some uncertainty whether the Feroz Shah Kotla stadium in New Delhi will get to host any of the World T20 matches.
This situation has no doubt negatively affected fans of the game, as it is really difficult to book their flights, visas and make hotel reservations. And if there are no updates soon, the troubles are going to increase for the organisers.
India has been quite good in hosting major Cricket events and the ICC Cricket World Cup 2011 was one of the best edition of World Cup. However, this time the scenario doesn’t look to go the same – at least not at the moment.
The deadline which has been told by Anurag Thakur for the release of Tickets is today (15th February). It will be interesting to see if tickets actually go on sale from today. (Excerpts from thecourierdaily.com)
