The International Cricket Council (ICC) has handed over the hosting of the 2021 T20 World Cup to Hindustan. Now he has threatened the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) that he can take away the hosting of the World Cup from Hindustan and give it to another.
The ICC has given this threat to the world’s richest cricket board because of the issue related to it. The ICC has told the BCCI that if it does not succeed in getting tax exemption for the tournament from the Government of India, then it can shift the T20 World Cup to somewhere else from India in 2021. According to a sports website, a heavy email has also been received between ICC and BCCI in this subject. The ICC has said that the BCCI was supposed to give an assurance letter that the problem has been resolved in the negotiations with the Government of India, but the BCI has not done so yet.
BCCI is asking for time till June 30
On the other hand, the BCCI has to say that this is not an appropriate time to talk to the government due to the Kovid-19 epidemic. Due to this, its time limit should be extended to at least 30 June, but the ICC has rejected this request of BCCI. Let me tell you that on April 29, ICC Advocate Jonathan Hall had written a letter to the BCCI informing that the host has not yet passed in following the agreement. Therefore, the ICC Business Corporation is entitled to terminate the agreement with immediate effect at any time after 18 May 2020.
ICC has already suffered losses
This is not the first issue between ICC and BCCI. Earlier, the issue of tax exemption was also stuck during the 2016 T20 World Cup hosted by India. The BCCI was not able to get tax exemption from the Government of India. Due to this the ICC had a loss of 20 to 30 million US dollars. After this, in February 2018, the ICC warned the Board of Control for Cricket in India for the first time that if the Indian Board could not succeed in getting tax exemption from the government, then the T20 World Cup and 2023 ODIs to be held in ICC 2021 India can withdraw the hosting of the World Cup from India. Because if there is a T20 World Cup hosted by India without any exemption, then it is likely to lose about US $ 100 million.
