Australia is set to host the T20 World Cup this year, with the first decision to be made by Australia itself and the second by the International Cricket Council.

But Pakistan and India are currently in dispute over the Australian T20 World Cup.

Fans, boards and the media in both countries want a decision on the T20 World Cup. Pakistani fans want the World Cup to be held in any case, whether in New Zealand or any other country.

On the other hand, the Indian fans and the board want it to be postponed. That is why there is a quarrel between the two.

Pakistani fans think that India wants to cancel the World Cup in order to make money by holding the IPL. That’s why the email from Australia was leaked. The ICC is investigating, with the outcome yet to come.

The Indian fans and the board are not in favour of holding the World Cup without fans, nor do they want it to be cancelled, because they think that the situation is not good yet and an event like the World Cup should be held in the best atmosphere.

Interestingly, the broadcaster of T20 World Cup and the IPL is the same, and the broadcaster also wants to hold a private league. The broadcaster has also written a letter to the ICC. The broadcaster’s Indian affiliation is no secret.

In such a situation, Pakistani fans are thinking that the ICC will also rule in favour of India. And that’s why there’s a fight between the two on social media and also the mainstream media outlets.

What do Australian fans want when their neighbour New Zealand has offered to host the tournament?
