The World Cup will be played in the country of the same name on June 12-13, but its organisers are under pressure to find a host country with the best economic prospects.
“We need a host that can provide a long-term commitment to the host nation.
We’re not interested in one-offs.
The tournament will be the biggest sporting event in the world for a number of years,” Fifa executive committee member Jens Stoltenberg told reporters in Zurich.
The tournament will cost more than £2bn, and Fifa is also working to secure other financial support for host countries such as a “fair share” of the prize money from the event.
It is likely that many host nations will have to accept the decision to host the World T20, as they have already been fined millions for hosting it.
