Oman likely to host six groups games of T20 World Cup 2021

Oman, which is the co-host of the ICC men's T20 World Cup, is likely to host six group games at the Oman Cricket Academy Ground in Muscat

The Oman Cricket Academy Ground in Muscat, one of the four venues for the upcoming ICC Men's T20 World Cup, is likely to be allocated six group games, according to a report by Cricbuzz. During a meeting in Delhi on Saturday, the tournament host BCCI discussed the viability of holding matches in Oman.

The tournament, which was originally scheduled for last year in India, was postponed and eventually shifted to UAE and Oman due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Oman, who have qualified for the tournament, are clubbed alongside Bangladesh, Scotland and Papua New Guinea in Group B of first round. Six league matches of that group could take place in Muscat.

"I am particularly delighted to be in Oman. As a major force in world cricket, the BCCI has always endeavoured to promote and assist Associate Nations. In my capacity as Asian Cricket Council President, my vision is to take cricket far and deep into Asia. Co-hosting the World Cup will put Oman Cricket on the global stage. They are also playing the Qualifiers and it will be an icing on the cake if they make it to the Super 12s," BCCI secretary Jay Shah had said while launching the tournament in Muscat earlier this month.

The first round of the World Cup games may run from October 17 to 22 with four teams qualifying for the Super 12s, which are likely to be played at the Sheikh Zayad Stadium in Abu Dhabi.

Dubai and Sharjah are the other two host cities of the T20 World Cup which will be played from October 17 to November 14.
