US Wants To Host T20 World Cup

US to host ICC tournament from 2023: Chief Executive of American Cricket Ann Higgins



Ian Higgins, chief executive of Washington American Cricket, has said he is hopeful that the success of the United States in hosting the 1994 FIFA World Cup could help his bid for the ICC T20 World Cup. In a statement, Ian Higgins said the United States wants to host the ICC T20 World Cup.


He said that the United States has been one of the host countries of the International Cricket Council (ICC) tournament since 2023. The record number of matches played in the 1994 FIFA World Cup in the United States was watched by more than three and a half million spectators. Ian Higgins, chief executive of USA Cricket, added that the United States had achieved one-day international cricket status in early 2019, after which the US team defeated Scotland in December.

He said that England's famous all-rounder Liam Plunkett also wants to play for the United States. Higgins said the United States wants to achieve test status in the next decade. "Our goal is to build a team that can compete with teams from all ICC countries in the short term and becomes a full member of the ICC in the next 10 years," he said.

He said the United States has hosted six ODIs and 10 T20s at Central Broward Regional Park in Lauderhill, Florida, and two T20s will be played between the West Indies and South Africa in August this year. Higgins said the United States could prove itself at the top of the cricket table in many other areas of the game. He said USA Cricket would persuade the ICC to host the T20 World Cup in the United States.

The CC plans to have at least six venues in a country that are eligible to host international matches, but if you look at the number of spectators in the last two World Cups played in the United States, it is much wider for cricket and Better places will appear.
