The Twenty20 World Cup is not being thought about moving from the Caribbean islands and the United States to the United Kingdom, according to the International Cricket Council (ICC) and England & Wales Cricket Board (ECB). In response to claims that the championship will be given to England, Ireland, and Scotland as a result of organizational uncertainty in the USA Cricket (USAC), both cricket organizations made these claims separately on Friday.
The ICC Men’s T20 World Cup 2024 would not be held in the USA or the West Indies, according to reports, an ECB spokeswoman insisted. “Since the ICC organized the event, their statement must be regarded as legally and conclusively conclusive.”
With 20 nations and 55 matches, the 2024 Twenty20 World Cup will have the greatest field size of any ICC event. It will be the championship’s ninth iteration. The ICC stated that event planning has already begun and that venue inspections have been finished.
The ICC spokeswoman stated that “planning for the event in June 2024 is in full swing” and that “venue inspections have just recently been completed in both host territories.”
These comments were dismissed by an ICC participant as wild conjecture. “The only other potential location for the 2024 tournament is England, which is slated for June. The ECB’s response to the question of whether it would be possible to host in 2024 is unequivocal: it won’t be possible. Consequently, it is not even a possibility. Anyone who is sufficiently alert will be able to see this by simply looking at the England venue schedule for the upcoming season,” the member said.
According to reports, the hosts of the 2024 and 2030 championships could switch places, with England, Ireland, and Scotland hosting the event in 2024 and the West Indies/US seven years later. This would give the USAC time to resolve its administrative problems.
The US championship matches might be held in Florida, Dallas, and another location with no administrative involvement from USAC. US, ICC insiders claim that various creative locations are being considered for the championship’s staging in the US.
