    Default Women’s Cricket World Cup: Postponing, shifting among several options

    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.

    Default Pakistan's women's World Cup matches shifted to Cuttack

    Fearing protests and disruption, the Pakistan women's cricket team's World Cup matches have been shifted to Odisha, bringing an end to the uncertainty over the fate of the team's participation following the killing of two Indian soldiers at the border.


    Although the Board of Control for Cricket in India and the International Cricket Council are yet to make an official announcement, tournament director Suru Naik confirmed that the matches will be shifted to Cuttack in Odisha.

    All the teams in Group B, comprising New Zealand , Pakistan, Australia nd South Africa , will play their matches in Cuttack. A fresh schedule is being worked out.

    The BCCI had been looking for alternative venues ever since tension on the India-Pakistan border escalated, forcing all the nine Pakistani hockey players taking part in the high-profile Hockey India League to return home without playing a single match.
    Originally, the entire tournament was scheduled to be held in Mumbai but fears of widespread protests by the Shiv Sena and other right-wing organisations against the Pakistan team prompted the MCA to ask BCCI for an alternative venue

    The eight-team women's World Cup is scheduled to begin on January 31 and culminate on February 17.
    Apart from the Barabati stadium in Cuttack, the Wankhede stadium, the Cricket Club of India's Brabourne stadium, the Mumbai Cricket Association's (MCA) Bandra-Kurla Complex ground and MIG Club in Bandra are venues for the matches.
    As per the schedule, the Pakistan team is set to arrive in India on January 26.
