ICC to consider bid from USA for the 2024 T20 World Cup

It is understood that ICC is making this move, keeping in mind the LA Olympics 2028. ICC has been looking for an opportunity to launch Cricket into global cognizance for a long time now.

The International Cricket Council is considering moving the 2024 edition of the T20 World Cup to the far west, most likely in the United States of America. According to a report by Sydney Morning Herald, ICC is very likely to consider a joint bid by USA Cricket and the Cricket West Indies for hosting the 2024 world cup of the shortest format.

It is understood that ICC is making this move, keeping in mind the LA Olympics 2028. ICC has been looking for an opportunity to launch Cricket into global cognizance for a long time now. The Herald report read, “IN addition to making a significant move away from those years, the choice of the US to host the 2024 tournament would also serve as a launchpad for cricket’s long-awaited inclusion in the Olympic games starting with LA in 2028 and following up with Brisbane in 2032.”

ICC is willing to increase the distribution and recognition of the game in distant parts of the world. To promote their cause, ICC has started looking for associate and emerging nations for the hosting rights of global events. The international council is willing to host several global tournaments between 2024 to 31 that will entice global viewership.

If things go according to plan, the 2024 T20 World Cup will be the first tournament since the 2014 T20 World Cup, held in Bangladesh, hosted outside India, Australia, or England.
