ICC to announce hosts for four major women’s cricket tournaments at annual conference
The upcoming four major women’s cricket tournaments, which will take place in 2023–2027, will be announced at the ICC annual conference, which begins this weekend in Birmingham.
Two T20 World Cup, one ODI World Cup, and a T20 Champions Trophy are among the four major marquee competitions. These were some of the twelve events that the ICC recently finalised in connection with women’s rights. That will now offered separately from men’s rights for the first time.
ESPNcricinfo reports that for the four specified events, ICC has received a total of 16 offers from a total of seven interested countries. A group that comprises ICC directors will select and shortlist the competition hosts from the submitted proposals.
Former New Zealand fast bowler Martin Snedden, who is also chairman of New Zealand Cricket, former India captain and current BCCI president Sourav Ganguly, Cricket West Indies president Ricky Skerritt, and former England women’s captain Clare Connor, who is also the acting ECB CEO, are all members of the working group.
The Chief Executives Committee (CEC) meeting will take place on July 24 before the final meeting. That will followed by the Finance and Commercial Affairs committee meeting on July 25.
A final board meeting will held on July 26 to make the ultimate decision.
The ICC has made the decision to segregate the rights for men’s and women’s competitions. And also market them separately in various regions. The six women’s tournaments have 103 total matches. And also the rights sold for three packages over a four-year period; TV, digital, and TV and digital combined.
