The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) will offer to have three impending ICC occasions in the following cycle beginning from 2024 for a very long time. The choice was taken at the board’s new Apex Council Meeting which was held practically as of late.
As of late, ICC reestablished the Champions Trophy which last occurred in 2017 when Pakistan vigorously defeated India in the last event.
Alongside it, the ICC has taken consideration that there is at any rate a solitary worldwide occasion occurring each year from 2024. The BCCI is by all accounts sure of facilitating the World Cups now after effectively co-facilitating the 50-over WC and facilitating the 2016 T20 WC alone.
They are now offering to facilitate the 2025 Champions Trophy, 2028 T20 World Cup and 2031 ODI World Cup.
“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,”said by one of the Senior BCCI officials as quoted by Yahoo News.
India are the hosts of the impending T20 World Cup to be played in October-November in the not so distant future. Notwithstanding, it’s anything but yet sure if the competition will be played in India because of the COVID-19 danger.
Besides, the nation is likewise scheduled to have the 2023 ODI World Cup and the BCCI official figured that it will be ideal for them to play hosts to the Champions a few years after the fact.
“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,” added by the official.
ICC has chosen to build the groups in the following cycle for worldwide occasions. While the 50-over World Cup will have 14 groups, the super occasion in the most brief configuration will see 20 groups engaging it out for brilliance.
