Good news for cricket fans, India to host 2025 Women's World Cup

The International Cricket Council (ICC) on Tuesday unveiled the host countries for the next major ICC tournaments in the women’s category. It is a matter of happiness for the Indian fans that India has got the host of the 2025 Women’s World Cup. The next ICC Women’s Cricket World Cup in 2025 will be hosted by India and Sri Lanka will host the ICC Women’s T20 Champions Trophy in 2027, provided they qualify for the event. Bangladesh will host the Women’s T20 World Cup for the second time. The hosts were selected through a competitive bidding process under the supervision of a board sub-committee chaired by Martin Snedden with Sourav Ganguly and Ricky Skerritt along with Claire Connor. The ICC Board accepted the recommendations of the committee and thus got three Asian countries hosting. The BCCI has already said that it wants to take all forms of cricket forward. Whether it is the issue of holding the women’s IPL or the return of cricket after 24 years in the Commonwealth, these are all indications that no stone is being left unturned to take women’s cricket forward. On this occasion, BCCI President Sourav Ganguly said that “We were keen to host the ICC Women’s Cricket World Cup 2025 and we are happy that we have won the rights to host the Women’s Cricket World Cup. India won the 50-over Women’s World Cup in 2013. The game has changed tremendously since hosting the Cup.” After receiving the host, BCCI Sachin Jay Shah has said that “We are delighted to host the 2025 ICC Women’s Cricket World Cup and let me tell you that BCCI will leave no stone unturned to make it a memorable event. We will try to enhance the game. Many steps are being taken.The popularity of the game in the country will increase further by hosting the World Cup at the grassroots level.
