The final of the T20 World Cup 2021 will be held at the Narendra Modi Stadium in Ahmedabad, the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) decided in the apex council meeting on Friday (April 16).
Nine venues - Mumbai, New Delhi, Chennai, Kolkata, Bengaluru, Hyderabad, Dharamsala, Ahmedabad and Lucknow – have reportedly been picked by the BCCI apex council for the T20 World Cup slated to be held in India later this year.
The T20 World Cup, which is slated to be held in October-November this year will see the entry of three new venues in Ahmedabad, Lucknow, Chennai and Hyderabad. The four venues had not hosted the matches in the 2016 edition of the T20 World Cup held in India.
According to various reports, the final of the T20 World Cup 2021 will be held at the Narendra Modi Stadium in Ahmedabad.
“The nine venues have been informed and it was again discussed that preparations should continue for the showpiece event with an eye on the Covid-19 situation and a call will only be taken closer to the event. It is too early to imagine what can or will happen in October-November with regards to the coronavirus situation. But preparations shall be on," a BCCI source said._Hindustan Times
