“The ICC Men’s T20 World Cup is a pinnacle event in the T20 format, We’ve had the pleasure of lifting the trophy twice and I’m sure the West Indies will be one of the favourites to win once again. I know fans back home and in the rest of the world are waiting with enthusiasm for this event. I look forward to being a part of this show and discussing the schedule.”
Dinesh Karthik added,
“The scheduled announcement takes us one step closer to the ICC Men’s T20 World Cup and is the point from where teams start chalking out their final plans, Players in the T20 format have only gotten more skillful over the past five years since the last edition, and I bet we are in for some scintillating performances and nerve-wracking thrillers.”
