England, Ireland, and Scotland will host the 2030 Men’s T20 World Cup, the ICC have announced today.
The 2021 Men’s T20 World Cup wrapped up on Sunday but the focus has quickly shifted to the future.
We already know that the 2022 Men’s T20 World Cup will be in Australia and the 2023 Men’s 50-over World Cup will be in India but the ICC revealed the 14 hosts for the eight international Men’s white-ball tournaments that are set to be held between 2024 and 2031 today.
Among those are England, Ireland, and Scotland, who will co-host the Men’s T20 World Cup in June 2030.
That’ll be the first time since 2019 that England have hosted a Men’s international white-ball tournament, while Ireland and Scotland will be hosting for the first time since 1999 when multiple World Cup matches were held in the countries.
We don’t yet know the full schedule or which specific venues will play host to matches in the tournament.
It’s a long way away but the prospect of another international men’s white-ball tournament in the UK is an exciting one and we all know what happened last time England were the hosts…
The full schedule is as follows:
|West Indies & USA||June 2024||ICC Men’s T20 World Cup|
|Pakistan||February 2025||ICC Men’s Champions Trophy|
|India & Sri Lanka||February 2026||ICC Men’s T20 World Cup|
|South Africa, Zimbabwe & Namibia||October/November 2027||ICC Men’s Cricket World Cup|
|Australia & New Zealand||October 2028||ICC Men’s T20 World Cup|
|India||October 2029||ICC Men’s Champions Trophy|
|England, Ireland & Scotland||June 2030||ICC Men’s T20 World Cup|
|India & Bangladesh||October/November 2031||ICC Men’s Cricket World Cup|
Among the notable inclusions are the USA, who will host their first international tournament – the 2024 Men’s T20 World Cup – alongside the West Indies.
The ICC Champions Trophy is also set to return and will be held in Pakistan in 2025, which looks set to be a landmark event and the first international men’s tournament held in the country since 1996 when it co-hosted the World Cup with India and Sri Lanka.
There’s an awful lot of white-ball cricket set to be played over the next decade, that’s for sure!
