Twenty20 World Cup 2024 Set for Americas Region

IslandStats.com
The United States will host an International Cricket Council (ICC) World Cup for the first time, having been confirmed as the destination for the 2024 Men's T20 World Cup alongside the West Indies.

The decision is widely viewed as having been made with an eye on cricket's bid to feature and the Los Angeles 2028 Olympic Games, and will be hoped to act as a catalyst for cricket development in the US.

Hosting rights to eight men's tournaments have been assigned by the ICC, with six of those events set to be played in more than one country.

India and Sri Lanka were awarded the 2026 T20 World Cup, Australia, and New Zealand the 2028 T20 World Cup, and England, Ireland and Scotland the 2030 T20 World Cup.

The 2027 Cricket World Cup - a 50-over competition - is heading to South Africa, Zimbabwe, and Namibia, while India and Bangladesh have won the rights to the 2031 edition.

India was also awarded the 2029 Champions Trophy - another 50-over competition, open to the eight best teams in the world - while Pakistan will stage the 2025 edition.

Pakistan being awarded an ICC event is a significant landmark for a country that went a decade without hosting international cricket because of security concerns.

International cricket returned to Pakistan in 2019 and the nation has hosted several series since, although New Zealand pulled out of a tour earlier this year on security grounds - just hours before the first match was due to start - and England then canceled a planned tour in the aftermath.

An ICC Board sub-committee comprised of chair Martin Snedden, Sourav Ganguly, and Ricky Skerritt recommended hosts to the ICC Board, which the ICC said accepted those recommendations.
