Both Sri Lanka and United Arab Emirates (UAE) have been identified as backup venues for the upcoming 2021 ICC T20 World Cup which is set to be hosted by India.
According to tge latest developments, the two nations have been asked to be on standby in case the grand tournament cannot be hosted in India for various reasons.
Last week, the International Cricket Council (ICC) had announced that India will remain the hosts of the 2021 T20 World Cup while the postponed 2020 tournament which was set to be held in Australia will now be taking place in 2023.
