Inclusion of women’s cricket lauded by ICC, ECB

The International Cricket Council (ICC) and England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB), welcome the decision by the Commonwealth Games Federation (CGF) to nominate women’s cricket for inclusion at the Commonwealth Games in Birmingham in 2022.

The decision, which needs to be ratified by CGF members, follows a comprehensive bidding process, where the ICC, in partnership with the ECB, presented the compelling case for women’s cricket to become part of the Commonwealth Games sport programme.

The application for inclusion of women’s cricket for Birmingham 2022 is part of the global ambition for cricket to inspire and empower women and girls around the world and to drive greater levels of inclusivity and opportunity throughout the sport. ICC Chief Executive Manu Sawhney said: “We are absolutely delighted that women’s cricket has been nominated for inclusion in Birmingham 2022.”
