ICC Meeting: BCCI has until 28 June to decide on T20 World Cup Venue, approval to include 14 teams in One Day World Cup

Digital Desk, Dubai. The International Cricket Council (ICC) has given the BCCI till June 28 to take a decision on the October-November T20 World Cup venue. The ICC gave this information after its meeting on Tuesday.

If BCCI is unable to host the tournament due to Corona’s position in India, it will be held in the United Arab Emirates. However, the BCCI wants the T20 World Cup to be held in India itself. If the tournament also shifts to UAE, then BCCI will host it.

The Champions Trophy will return in 2025 in an eight-year cycle starting from 2023 to 2031. The Champions Trophy will be played in the same format where the eight teams are divided into two and then semi-finals and final matches take place. In 2018, the T20 World Cup was added after removing this tournament. The last Champions Trophy tournament was played in 2017. Pakistan defeated India in the final.

The finals of the World Test Championship will be hosted in 2025, 2027, 2029 and 2031. In its meeting, the ICC has approved 14 teams for the 50-over World Cup and 20 teams for the T20 World Cup in the next cycle of the Future Tours program.

Currently there are 10 teams in the 50 overs World Cup. There will be 54 matches in the ODI World Cup in 2027 and 2031, with the ICC using the format used in 2003. The 14 teams will be divided into two groups, with the top three from each group making it to the Super Sixes. The four best teams will then proceed to the semi-finals and then to the finals.

The T20 World Cup will see 20 teams divided into four groups, with the top two teams from each group progressing to the next stage. The Super 8 teams will then proceed to the semi-finals and finals. The four T20 World Cups are scheduled to be held in 2024, 2026, 2028 and 2030.
