ICC inspects venues at San Francisco, Los Angeles, Dallas, Texas for 2024 T20 world cup

NEW DELHI, Jan 18: Oakland, Florida, Los Angeles are some of the cities that have been recced by the ICC Venue inspection team as prospective centres for the 2024 T20 World Cup jointly hosted by United States and West Indies, informed USA Cricket president Atul Rai It is understood that ICC event's biggest box office fixture -- India versus Pakistan -- is likely to be held in USA and not the West Indies keeping in mind the crowd support for both teams.
"Preferably it will be held in the USA considering that India's T20 games against West Indies in Florida were complete sell out," Rai told PTI in an interview.
The 2024 global event will be first of its kind in the USA while the Caribbean nations have already hosted one 50 over (2007) and one T20 World Cup (2010) each.
"The ICC events team headed by Chris Tetley had travelled up and down back in May when they inspected a lot of grounds across various cities. Few weeks back (December), they again came back and narrowed their search," Rai added.
The marquee-event is aimed at raising the traction of cricket in North America where a sizeable Asian population resides and is passionate about the game.
"The ICC wants to give us at least 18 months time to get all the venues ready and functional for a global event. During the last inspection, they checked out the Oaklands Coliseum in San Francisco and a ground in Los Angeles (Woodley Cricket Field). They also looked at grounds in Dallas and Texas," said Rai.
Florida's Fort Lauderhill ground, which had hosted a few India versus West Indies T20 games last year, remains an obvious choice of venue.
One of the issues in USA is that most grounds that will be converted into cricket grounds are baseball fields with shorter dimensions and lesser capacity.
However, Rai assured that dimensions won't be an issue as ICC would choose appropriate grounds and every aspect is being looked into.
"If we look at the ground in Los Angeles, India A had travelled here to play five games against Australia. It's a proper cricket ground with big boundaries and also spectator capacity is pretty good," Rai stated.
