Bangladesh is going to host T – Twenty world cup next year. Ten countries will participate in the men’s world cup. Top eight countries according to ICC ranking will have the opportunity to participate in the world cup directly. Other two countries will be selected by qualifying round. Bangladesh and Zimbabwe have to battle in the qualifying round. So on paper there is a risk that Bangladesh may miss the opportunity to participate.
Cox’s Bazaar is dropped from the venue list, because this venue is not ready yet. T – Twenty world cup cricket is arranged for both men and women. Women’s T – Twenty group matches will be played at Sylhet stadium. Some group matched will be played at Chittagong and Mirpur stadium. But all the knockout matches will be played at Mirpur stadium.
These decisions came from ICC meeting today. There was some questions with Sylhet and Cox’s Bazaar venue. But Bangladesh cricket board was hopeful to prepare those venues before the event.
