The International Cricket Council (ICC) today confirmed the ICC events from 2024-2031 will see both the ICC Men’s Cricket World Cup and the ICC Men’s T20 World Cup being expanded and a men’s Champions Trophy reintroduced.

The ICC Men’s Cricket World Cup will become a 14-team, 54-match event in 2027 and 2031, while the ICC Men’s T20 World Cup will be expanded to a 20-team, 55-match event in 2024, 2026, 2028 and 2030. An eight-team Champions Trophy will be hosted in 2025 and 2029. The ICC World Test Championship final will be hosted in 2025, 2027, 2029 and 2031. The ICC Women’s Event Schedule has been confirmed with an extension to both the Cricket World Cup and the T20 World Cup. To be part of the ICC’s long-term commitment to advancing the women’s game.

The ICC Men’s Cricket World Cup format will consist of two groups of seven, with the top three in each group progressing to the Super Six stage, followed by a semi-final and a final. This is the same format that was used in the ICC Men’s Cricket World Cup 2003. The format of the ICC Men’s T20 World Cup will have four groups of five, with the top two from each group going through the Super Eight stage. From the knockout stages of the semi-finals and finals. The Champions Trophy will follow previous editions with two groups of four, the semi-finals and the final.

The ICC Board also approved the process of determining the hosts for all men’s, women’s and U19 events in the next cycle. The hosts for the men’s events will be decided in September following the selection process which begins this month. The process of hosting the women’s and under-19 events will begin in November and there will be an opportunity to engage with a wide range of members, including first-time hosts.

The ICC Board has requested the Management to focus its planning efforts for the ICC Mains t20 world cup 2021 On the event to be held in the United Arab Emirates with the possibility of including another venue in the Middle East. The final decision on the host country will be taken later this month. The board also confirmed that the BCCI will continue to be the host of the event, irrespective of the event.

ICC Acting Chief Executive Geoff Allardyce said, “The confirmation of the ICC event schedule by 2031 is an important step for cricket and will form the basis of our growth strategy for the next decade.”

β€œThe revised approach to selecting hosts for our events will give us a lot more flexibility to grow the game and add new fans. There is a small pool of countries with the necessary infrastructure to host our senior men’s events which sums up the selection process. Additionally, many of our members expressed interest in hosting women’s and under-19 events, which gives us a great opportunity to stage events in established and emerging cricketing countries. he said.
