Strong concerns have resurfaced about Delhi hosting the first semi-final of the World Twenty20, scheduled for March 30.

It is understood that both the ICC and BCCI are worried that the Delhi District Cricket Association is being forced to not allow ticket sales to the RP Mehra Block, which was the old club house at the Feroz Shah Kotla, meaning nearly 1800 seats will be empty.

There is also the concern that no hoardings are allowed to be displayed in front of the stands.

Those restrictions were put in place by the Delhi High Court recently while issuing clearances for the DDCA to host World T20 matches.

A final decision is likely to be reached in the next day or two, with the ICC and BCCI also discussing alternate venues to host the game.
