Cricket West Indies has issued a statement on the bidding process for matches during the T20 World Cup 2024 after a news report containing misinformation was circulated mid week.
The release stated that CWI acknowledges the enthusiasm and interest expressed by various Governments, Cricket Boards, and stakeholders in hosting the highly-anticipated tournament.
Johnny Grave, Chief Executive Officer, stated: “Following a robust selection process of our seven host venues, CWI-appointed Venues Selection Committee, chaired by President Dr. Kishore Shallow, has made recommendations to the ICC on allocations of matches for ICC Men’s T20 World Cup scheduled to take place in the Caribbean and USA in June 2024. These recommendations are subject to venues confirming commitment, to all required obligations and ICC approval.”
He also acknowledged the commendable efforts made by nations within the region. However, he emphasised that final decisions have yet to be reached.
