The International Cricket Council (ICC) has decided that India and Bangladesh will jointly host the 2031 ICC Men’s Cricket World Cup. The hosts were selected via a competitive bidding process which was overseen by a board sub-committee chaired by Martin Snedden along with Sourvav Ganguly and Ricky Skerritt.
The ICC confirmed the 14 host countries for the ICC men’s white ball events from 2024-2031. It includes 11 full members and three associate members who will host two ICC Men’s World Cups, four ICC Men’s T20 World Cups and two ICC men’s Champions Trophy events.
Earlier, Bangladesh had organised the 2011 World Cup along with India and Sri Lanka. It had also organised the 2014 T20 World Cup.
Expressing happiness at the conclusion of the competitive bidding process, ICC Chair Greg Barclay said that it is exciting that countries like the USA wil stage ICC events for the first time. It is a strategic growth market for us, said Greg Barclay. The USA and West Indies will jointly host the 2024 Men’s T20 World cup.
