ESPNcricinfo: India to host 2021 T20 World Cup, Australia to host 2022 tournament


    India will reportedly host the 2021 men’s T20 World Cup where West Indies will attempt to defend their title.

    According to ESPNcricinfo, this decision from the ICC’s business development wing came as it met virtually today.

    The 2021 tournament is carded for October-November and will see the final played on November 14th.

    West Indies are the defending champs having won their 2nd title in 2016 by beating England on the back of Marlon Samuels’ 85 not out.

    Meanwhile, Australia who were supposed to host the 2020 World T20, will be the venue for the 2022 tournament.

    Also, the women’s World Cup which was carded for this year will take place between February and March 2022 instead.
