England will reportedly not play any match in the United States of America in the next year’s T20 World Cup. The next edition of the T20 World Cup will be co-hosted by the Caribbeans and the USA in June 2024.
While the Caribbeans will be hosting the tournament for the second time, the USA will be doing it for the very firs time. The 2010 T20 World Cup was also held in the Caribbeans and England had won that edition. A total of 20 teams will participate in the event.
The likes of Canada, Uganda and the USA will be playing the T20 World Cup for the very first time. The 20 teams will be divided into four groups of five teams each. The top two teams from each group will progress to the Super 8 round. In this stage, the qualifying teams will be split into two groups of four and the top two teams from each group will qualify for the semifinals.
England not to play any game in the USA:
According to English news outlet the Telegraph, England will not play any games in the USA. While the country will host the mega clash between India and Pakistan, it will not host the defending champions England. The Jos Buttler-les side’s four matches in the pool stage are likely to be played in Antigua, Barbados and St Lucia.
The report further stated that one of the four groups is likely to be played exclusively in the US, with two played only in the Caribbean and another split between the two. The ICC is yet to announce the group and the schedule for the event.
From the Super 8 stage onwards, most of the matches or even all of them will be played in West Indies. The USA is likely to host 16 of the 55 games. Grand Prairie in Dallas, Broward County in Florida and Nassau County in New York have already been confirmed as the three American venues for the tournament.
