    PCB planning to host five major ICC events from 2024-2031

    LAHORE: The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) has planned to bid for five major ICC events to be held from 2024 to 2031, including ODI and Twenty20 World Cups and the Champions Trophy.

    It is learnt that the ICC had asked for the expression of interest from its member countries. An independent committee formed by the game’s global governing body will assess the bids in December this year to give its report for a final decision next year.

    Pakistan last time hosted an ICC event — 1996 World Cup — jointly with India and Sri Lanka as the global body had pulled out the 2008 Champions Trophy and the 2011 World Cup from Pak*istan on security grounds.

    After failing to host or co-host any world event in the 2015-2023 cycle, Pakistan is now showing interest to hold international cricket events in the 2024-2031 cycle, believing the security situation across the country has improved.

    Pakistan, it is learnt, will bid to host the Champions Trophy alone, while for the World Cups it will make a joint bid along with any other Asian countries, minus India. It may bid with the UAE, Sri Lanka and Bangladesh.

    However, India’s strong influence on the ICC affairs and in Asia’s cricketing countries may hinder Pakistan’s efforts to host international events. The political tussle between the two nuclear-armed neighbouring countries has had a significantly negative impact on international cricket, as it would not be easy for the ICC to confirm India’s participation in any international events hosted in Pakistan.

    In contrast, Pakistan’s participation in any event hosted by India is easy, as the former’s stance is not as tough as that of India. For participating in this year’s T20 World Cup scheduled to be staged in India, Pakistan only put forward to the ICC the condition of ensuring the issuance of visas to its team, Pakistan fans as well as journalists, which has not yet been accepted officially.

    Due to a disastrous Covid-19 situation prevailing in India the ICC has indicated it could shift the T20 World Cup to the UAE.

    Dawn has learnt that incumbent PCB chairman Ehsan Mani, who has organised the 2007 ODI World Cup in West Indies and then first T20 World Cup the same year in South Africa as the ICC head, is leading a team of the PCB preparing the bids for ICC’s events.

    Mani’s tenure, however, is ending in September this year and only PCB patron Prime Minister Imran Khan could extend his tenure.

    Last year, the ICC also asked for the expression of interest for its 18 major and minor events and the PCB in response had shown interest but the ICC has not made any announcement in this regard.

    The PCB believes it can hold the ICC Champions Trophy, a prime eight-team event, at four available venues in Karachi, Lahore, Rawalpindi and Multan. It is expected to complete the Niaz Stadium in Hyderabad next year to also consider it as a venue for international matches.

    But for the World Cup Pakistan would like to go with an Asian partner without India.

    The PCB is also preparing the 2024-2027 Future Tours Programme without considering any series against India because of the strained political relations between the two countries.

    But yes agree. However, it's not the security side of things - the COVID situation will also remain with us for a few years.

    What inequality? We are responsible for our own demise.

    We were given hosting rights for the 2009 Champions Trophy and co-hosting rights for the 2011 World Cup, but we repaid the faith by failing to provide security to Sri Lanka.

    PCB does not deserve to host any ICC tournament for at least 25-30 years.

    Pakistan can co-host with SL and UAE but simply do not see them being the sole hosts for the next 6-7 years. WT20 and ODI WC will be crowded affair now with 20 and 14 teams so do Pak have the necessary sporting and hotel infra in place?

    Difficult for pakistan to get the hosting rights alone. We still don't know if NZ and Aus are willing to visit pakistan. India will not visit, while that should not be a deal breaker as long as other teams are willing to tour. But will ICC be willing to host an event without India and take the revenue hit.

    There are only two ODI WCs. One will be in Asia and one outside. Its near impossible that a world cup in Asia will be held without India hosting many natches.

    That leaves the T20 WC. Four events and almost all countries will want to host one. Pretty sure UAE will get one. Europe one. Australia one. And another may go to SA.

    Again the participation of Aus NZ and India will be an issue.

    BoG meeting minutes:

    The BoG was informed that the PCB has submitted expression of interest for six ICC Events in the 2024-31 cycle. Of these six events, the PCB is keen to host the three-venue ICC Champions Trophy 2025 and 2029 on its own, while it has offered to host the remaining four events – two eight-venue ICC T2o World Cups 2026 and 2028, as well as the two 10-venue ICC Men’s Cricket World Cups 2027 and 2031 – in partnership with other Asian countries.

    The ICC’s evaluation committee will now examine and evaluate the PCB as well as other members’ expression of interests and revert with their decision, before the second phase of the event hosting process begins in September. The PCB remains hopeful that it will earn hosting rights of, at least, one event, which, in turn, will act as a great boost to Pakistan, which last staged an ICC event in 1996.

    I think this is what it would look like

    2024 T20I WC/ England & Wales
    2025 CT/ India
    2026 T20I WC/ Pakistan & U.A.E (if not Sri Lanka & Bangladesh)
    2027 ODI WC/ Australia & New Zealand
    2028 T20I WC/ India
    2029 CT/ England & Wales
    2030 T20I WC/ Australia & New Zealand
    2031 ODI WC/ India

    As a whole, there will max be just one tournament hosted by non Big 3 teams, and 7 shared between Big 3

    I'm one of the neighbors and I never understand your nation's willingness to give up even before the battle starts. There is a great chance here as the PCB is stronger now than in 2010 and more countries are willing to tour Pakistan as seen over the last 5 years.

    17 MEMBERS SIGNAL INTEREST AS ICC EMBARK ON IDENTIFYING HOSTS FOR FUTURE ICC MEN'S EVENTS

    Following the expansion to its event programme in the next cycle, the International Cricket Council (ICC) has commenced the process to identify the hosts for men’s white-ball events to be held post 2023. The hosting of the ICC World Test Championship Final, the ICC women's and under-19 events in the new cycle will be determined in a separate process that will get underway later this year.

    Eight men’s ODI and T20 events, comprising two ICC Men’s Cricket World Cups, four ICC Men’s T20 World Cups and two ICC Champions Trophies, will be staged from 2024-2031 and ICC Members were invited to submit a preliminary technical proposal as a potential host. This included individual country submissions as well as joint proposals.

    Initial submissions have been received from Australia, Bangladesh, England, India, Ireland, Malaysia, Namibia, New Zealand, Oman, Pakistan, Scotland, South Africa, Sri Lanka, West Indies, UAE, USA and Zimbabwe.

    ICC Acting Chief Executive Geoff Allardice said: “We are delighted with the response from our Members to hosting ICC men’s white-ball events post 2023. This process gives us an opportunity to extend our range of hosts and grow interest in cricket worldwide reaching more fans whilst creating a long-term legacy for the sport.

    “Cricket has more than a billion fans around the world and ICC events have a proven track record of bringing significant economic and social benefits for host counties. These events provide hosts with a wonderful opportunity to work closely with local communities to grow the game whilst supporting economic and social development public policy goals.

    “We will now move forward to the second phase of the process where Members will provide a more detailed proposal before the ICC Board takes decisions on our future hosts later this year.”

    No where in the above article does it mention anything about Disney. They are going to have a say in where tournaments are hosted. If not, there will be some sort of change in the $$$ given to the ICC via the broadcasting rights. Something that the ICC or the non Big3 boards would not like.

    Realistically, Disney would not want to go anywhere there is a bad time difference for Indian audience. I am sure they would prefer anywhere in the subcontinent, UAE, Eng or SA. Anything else is a not so friendly timing for Indian TV audience.

    PCB to collaborate with Bangladesh and Sri Lanka boards for hosting two ODI World Cups

    Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) wants to have a partnership of sorts with the Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) and Sri Lanka Cricket (SLC) to bid for hosting two ODI World Cups in 2027 and 2031. PCB has also been in talks with the Emirates Cricket Board (ECB) which looks after matters in the UAE to host two T20 World Cups together.

    Pakistan has also expressed its desire to host two Champion Trophy events on its own in the next world cricket cycle apart from the above-mentioned. On Saturday, in a report which was published after talks with the PCB, it was confirmed that PCB has bid for six global events, two of which have been proposed in collaboration with South Asian boards.

    “We have made bids before the ICC and proposed to form consortiums with the Bangladesh and Sri Lanka boards,” PCB chairman Ehsan Mani said as quoted by a media source. “Similarly we want to have collaboration with the UAE board too.”

    To win the bid to host these events, Pakistan will be going against the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI), which has expressed the desire to host the 2025 Champions Trophy, 2028 T20 World Cup, and 2031 50-over World Cup. It has been 25 years that Pakistan has not hosted a global event and several factors have created this situation.

    The last time Pakistan hosted a World event match was the 1996 World Cup final
    The last time Pakistan hosted a World Cup event was way back in 1996. At the time, there was a joint committee formed between PCB, BCCI, and the SLC. The committee was called PILCOM (Pakistan India Lanka committee). Pakistan had got the rights to even hosting the final of the 1996 World Cup in Lahore.

    In 2011, when the World Cup returned to the sub-continent, Pakistan was initially a part of the plan. However, due to security concerns, Pakistan had to pull out its association with BCCI, SLC, and BCB. The 2008 Champions Trophy was initially supposed to be hosted by Pakistan but had to be shifted to 2009 and then out of the country to South Africa, due to similar reasons.

    The ICC recently confirmed that 17 boards have expressed interest to stage events from 2024 to 2031. The countries which have submitted their interests are Australia, Bangladesh, England, India, Ireland, Malaysia, Namibia, New Zealand, Oman, Pakistan, Scotland, South Africa, Sri Lanka, West Indies, UAE, USA, and Zimbabwe. The deadline for placing the bids was June 30. The ICC will announce its final decisions by the end of this year.

    Wasim Khan speaking to PakPassion.net

    PakPassion.net: Are you confident that you will get the go-ahead to host one of the ICC tournaments that the PCB has bid for?

    Wasim Khan: We wouldn’t have applied to host ICC tournaments if we weren’t confident of being successful. One has to remember that the return of Test cricket back to Pakistan has been huge. Obviously there has been a trickle of white-ball cricket from 2015 into Pakistan and we got to the stage a couple of years ago where we said we were not paying any teams or players to come to Pakistan which had been taking place since 2015. There’s a huge amount of work which has gone on by the Government of Pakistan and the Regional Governments to create a safe environment for players, so much so, that players are now confident of playing in Pakistan. Obviously having PSL players involved from the beginning has helped and has broken down some of the negative perceptions of the country. When players come to Pakistan for the first time, they are surprised that really, we are just a normal country. Every country has its issues but by and large the Government has cleaned up the country from a terrorism point of view and we provide a safe environment for players to play their cricket with state level security.

    We therefore felt that we were now in a strong position with the return of cricket full time to Pakistan. With South Africa already having toured, we’ve got New Zealand, England and Australia coming all in the space of 12 months, and it pleases me to say that these countries, apart from Bangladesh, Sri Lanka and West Indies have all been incredible supporters of Pakistan cricket. There’s now a real understanding from other countries around the world that Pakistan is as safe as anywhere and there’s also a strong need now with other countries laying the pathway for them to come and tour here as well. We are delighted that from February this year we were looking ahead to 12 very exciting months for Pakistan cricket. The bids have gone in, and we’ll find out by the end of September if we have been successful. But certainly, we will do everything we can to try and bring at least one ICC tournament to Pakistan from the period of 2024 to 2031.
