The International Cricket Council (ICC) has approved 14 teams for the 50-over World Cup and 20 teams for the Wolrd T20 in the next FTP.

“Having the ICC event schedule confirmed through to 2031 is a significant step forward for cricket and will form the basis of our growth strategy for the next decade,” ICC Acting Chief Executive Geoff Allardice. “The revised approach to selecting hosts for our events will give us much more flexibility to grow the game and engage new fans.

“There is a smaller pool of countries with the infrastructure needed to host our senior Men’s events which narrows the selection process. Additionally, many of our Members expressed interest in hosting Women’s and U19 events which gives us a great opportunity to stage events in established and emerging cricket nations.”
