ICC could award 2024 T20 WC to USA
The International Cricket Council (ICC) is expected to give the nod to a joint USA-West Indies bid for the 2024 T20 World Cup, as a platform for cricket's inclusion in the 2028 Los Angeles Games.
According to a report in Sydney Morning Herald, a "decision on venues for ICC events in the next cycle was imminent, and that an outward, global focus would mean they were more widely distributed than in the recent past."
This would be the first global tournament not hosted by either India, England or Australia since the 2014 T20 World Cup in Bangladesh. Under changes that same year wrought by the "big three" — the Board of Control for Cricket in India, the England and Wales Cricket Board and Cricket Australia — every event between 2015 and 2023 was awarded to one of the game's richest three countries.
The ICC has been for a long time looking to give emerging countries the hosting rights for the mega events.
