LONDON: The men’s Cricket World Cup will certainly once more come to be a 14-team tournament in 2027 and also 2031, the International Cricket Council (ICC) claimed on Tuesday.
The modifications were revealed as the ICC, cricket’s international governing body, revealed its international schedule of occasions from 2024 to 2031.
At The Same Time the Champions Prize– dubbed as the ‘mini’ Globe Cup– last staged in 2017 when Pakistan won in England, is to be revitalized as an eight-team event in 2025 and 2029.
Only 10 teams opposed the 2019 Globe Cup, won by hosts England, contrasted to 14 4 years earlier.
Yet a statement issued by the ICC board claimed: “The ICC Male’s Cricket World Cup will certainly become a 14 group, 54-match occasion in 2027 as well as 2031, whilst the ICC Men’s T20 Globe Cup will be expanded to a 20 team, 55-match occasion in 2024, 2026, 2028 and 2030.”
Minimizing the number of sides involved in the 2011 Globe Mug in Australia as well as New Zealand to just 10 was a questionable decision by the ICC, with doubters suggesting it irritated the global development of the video game.
Authorities defended the step at the time by saying a structured format reduced the danger of inequalities and was preferred by broadcasters.
