BCCI to bid for 3 ICC events in next cycle, check it out
The Board of Control for Cricket in India remains the world's richest cricket board. Meanwhile, it is looking to host some global cricketing events grandly, as it aims to bid for three International Cricket Council events. Check them out.
When it comes to the Board of Control for Cricket in India, everyone knows that it is the world's richest cricket board. Therefore, hosting a global tournament for the BCCI is no big deal.
On the same note, it has been reported that the BCCI is considering bidding for three International Cricket Council events in the next cycle, starting 2024. The decision was taken during the virtual Emergent Apex Council meeting on Sunday, as a Champions Trophy, a World T20 and a World Cup are the ones to have been shortlisted.
"Yes, we would be bidding for the 2025 Champions Trophy along with 2028 T20 World Cup and the 2031 50-over World Cup. The Apex Council has agreed on this, in principle. The Champions Trophy is a short tournament but is an immensely popular one. It was only fair that after the 2023 World Cup in India, we bid for the 2025 Champions Trophy. India should be in a position to host a global event every two to three years and hence we are bidding for three events," a BCCI official was quoted as saying to PTI.
Earlier this month, the ICC decided to re-introduce the Champions Trophy, having already been scrapped twice before. The last edition of the same was held in 2017, won by Pakistan.
Meanwhile, India is hosting the WT20 this year. However, it remains to be seen if the matches would be held in India, considering the concerning COVID situation in the country. At the same time, a venue shift to UAE-Oman is also being planned. Also, India would be hosting the 2023 World Cup, while the last time it held the same was back in 2011, as co-hosts, along with Bangladesh and Sri Lanka, with India winning the edition.
