Final call on Kotla’s four World T20 matches on February 8

New Delhi, Feb 5 (IANS) BCCI secretary Anurag Thakur on Friday confirmed that a final decision will be taken on February 8 whether Ferozeshah Kotla can host four matches of World T20.

Delhi is scheduled to host four matches, including a semi-final, of the biennial tournament starting from March 8 in India. But uncertainties still haunt Delhi and District Cricket Association (DDCA) as it is yet to obtain no-objection certificates from the local civic authorities.

The situation resulted in the February 12 match of the India-Sri Lanka bilateral T20I series being shifted out of Kotla to Ranchi.

“We will take a final call on whether Kotla will host matches of the World Twenty20 on February 8,” Thakur said at a press conference here.

Even though he did not announce the back-up plans for Kotla, Bengaluru and Nagpur have reportedly emerged as the venues where the Board of Control for Cricket in India may shift Kotla’s the matches.

Thakur also declared that the tickets for the World T20 matches will go on sale from February 9.
