Medallin Sports is the official Travel agent for the upcoming T20 WC
Medallin Sports, one of India’s leading sports travel companies has been appointed as the official travel agent for the upcoming T20 World cup
The sports experiential agency will have exclusive rights specialized and top-of-the-line travel packages to the sport’s fans across the world.
The original venues were supposed to be in India, but due to the Pandemic, the ICC and BCCI had to shift the cricket extravaganza.
The T20 world cup will be played over 4 weeks across 2 countries, UAE and Oman. The official venues are Dubai, Sharjah, Abu Dhabi in UAE, and Muscat in Oman.
All these venues will give the agency a great opportunity to treat the fans to Middle eastern hospitality and culture.
Much Awaited World cup
The 7th edition will commence after a 1-year delay. It is set to run from 17th October to 14th November.
The Indian team will kick off their campaign against next-door neighbor and rival Pakistan on 24th October. Followed by Test champions New Zealand on 31st October.
IPL to have simultaneous matches on last day of League stage for the 1st time
For the 1st time in IPL history, 2 matches will be played simultaneously at different venues.
This experimental request was agreed upon by the BCCI after broadcaster Star Sports requested the change at the IPl governing body meeting.
The experiment is set to take place on the last day of the league stage, 8th October. Instead of one afternoon and one evening match, two evening matches will be played.
The motive behind Star sport’s request is lower TRP in afternoon matches.
Final day clashes
The BCCI is set to take feedback from Star Sports after the two matches about the TRP generated.
BCCI is planning to have two new IPL teams next year and this could help it to conduct more games in fewer days.
In the past, IPL has witnessed few doubleheaders, which made it tough for the cricketers given the harsh Indian summers.
Taranjeet Kaur wins gold after a comeback at the U23 National Athletics championship
Young sprinter Taranjeet Kaur won the 100m women’s gold at the U23 Nationals at JLN Stadium in New Delhi.
Kaur clocked 11.54 seconds to take the top spot. Daneshwari and Nitya Gandhe of Karnataka settled with silver and bronze respectively.
Inspiration to All
In 2018, Kaur was met with a car accident outside the very same stadium she won the gold at. The accident left her with a broken collarbone.
Kaur was almost certain her career would end then and there. She persevered and bounced back at such a young age and 3 years later she is a golden girl.
The Delhi runner had recently won the Gold at the National Championship at Warangal with a personal best time of 11.50 seconds.
