The rest of the 20 games of the 49-match event have been awarded to Sri Lanka (12) and Bangaldesh (8).

The committee decided to give two other matches to Mohali apart from the semifinal.

Ahmedabad has been given a quarterfinal and two other games, while Kolkata and Delhi will host one India and three other matches each, BCCI secretary N. Srinivas said in a statement.

Jaipur has been left out of the list of venues with Nagpur, Chennai and Bangalore getting one India game each.

India’s share of the games increased by eight after the games scheduled in Pakistan were shifted to other co-hosts due to security concerns of the participating countries.
