The BCCI is the host of the global event, and it has complete control over the game distribution. ACCORDING TO REPORTS, the BCCI examined the practicality of holding matches in Oman at a meeting in Delhi.

“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

Group A

Sri Lanka, Ireland, the Netherlands, and Namibia’s Group A matches might be contested in Abu Dhabi, which would have finished hosting their part of the IPL games early, with the final one scheduled for October 8 at the Sheikh Zayed Stadium.

It is believed that the timetable would be revealed soon.

Participation of England players in the IPL
