It has been learnt that the ICC normally keeps two to three sets of schedule before zeroing in on the final one. But, it is a given that with the kind of traction an Indo-Pak rivalry generates, the match will have to be held on a weekend.

"As of now, Sunday, October 24 looks the likely option as the first week's Qualifying round matches starting October 17 will be held in Muscat, Oman," a source privy to developments in the ICC board told PTI on conditions of anonymity.

"So when the main round robin fixtures are played, it is better to start with an Indo-Pak game which will have the best TRP."

India and Pakistan are slotted in Group 2 along with the World Test Championship winners New Zealand and Afghanistan.

 The Group 1 comprises defending champions West Indies, former winners England, Australia and South Africa.

 The Groups of Super 12s have been selected on the basis of team rankings as of March 20, 2021, according to International Cricket Council.
