Women’s Cricket World Cup: Postponing, shifting among several options
Zeenews Sports Bureau
Amid growing tensions between India and Pakistan post the LOC incident, the Women’s Cricket World Cup is taking the beating as reports citing sources suggest that the event might be shifted out of Mumbai or even postponed.
An English news channel on Thursday reported that the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) is considering several options to avoid any unsavoury incident during the quadrennial event. Among these is the option of shifting the event out of Mumbai to Bangalore or Kolkata.
Another news website reported that the International Cricket Council (ICC) is considering postponing the tourney.
The World Cup is scheduled to be held in India from January 31in Mumbai.
As per the schedule, Pakistan are set to arrive in Mumbai on January 26, and will play their league games at the MCA-Bandra Kurla complex.
However, following incidents of protests against the Pakistani players participating in Hockey India League that led them returning home, it is unlikely that the BCCI or ICC will be taking any chances with the high profile event involving Pakistani cricketers.
