Kathmandu, November 13
The global cricket-governing body, International Cricket Council (ICC), says Nepal and Bangladesh will co-host the ICC U19 Women’s World Cup 2027.
As the ICC announced organisers of ICC U19 events between 2024 and 2027, Nepal and Bangladesh have been approved as co-hosts of the ICC Women’s World Cup 2027.
Meanwhile, the ICC U19 Women’s World Cup 2025 will be held in Malaysia and Thailand. It has already been confirmed the first edition of the event will be held in South Africa in 2023. Nepal failed to qualify for the event as a team.
Cricket Association of Nepal (CAN) Acting Secretary Prashant Bikram Malla says getting a chance to host the global event is a matter of pride. “This is the biggest achievement in Nepal’s cricket history.”
The hosts were selected via a competitive bidding process overseen by a board sub-committee chaired by Martin Snedden, the ICC says. “The ICC board accepted the recommendations of the committee and conducted a thorough review of each bid along with ICC management.”
