The International Cricket Council (ICC) has announced Saint Lucia among the venues to host the ICC Men’s T20 World Cup matches in 2024.

The  Saint Lucia matches will bowl off at the Daren Sammy Cricket Stadium in Beausejour, Gros Islet.

In addition to Saint Lucia, six other Caribbean countries will host the matches – Antigua & Barbuda, Barbados, Dominica, Guyana, Trinidad & Tobago, and St Vincent & The Grenadines.

Grand Prairie in Dallas, Broward County in Florida, and Nassau County in New York will also host the June 4 – 30, 2024 event.

The United States would be a venue for the T20 World Cup for the first time.

ICC Chief Executive Geoff Allardice expressed the organisation’s  delight over the US participation.

“The USA is a strategically important market and these venues give us an excellent opportunity to make a statement in the world’s biggest sports market,” Allardice stated.

Twenty teams will contest for the big prize in the 2024 Men’s T20 World Cup, featuring fifty-five matches.

Organisers have confirmed fifteen teams, with the Americas, Asia, and Africa Qualifier set to determine the remaining five spots in the coming months.

  1. Don’t count your chickens before they are hatched. Among the small Islands, I wonder why Jamaica is not on the list? I guarantee you they must be looking for the safest places, and maybe Barbados is ranked the safest and most pleasant for visitors.
    Is it too late for St. Lucia to set up a ‘military-cum-police’ type operation to sweep and wipe out criminality on the Island? From the depth of my heart I feel bothered for the moral decline of my birth country. The laxity of an amateur Ministry of ‘Security & Law Enforcement’ has been hurting St. Lucia’s reputation for a long time, and the once good name of St. Lucia is gone. This Ministry needs a very tough, no nonsense person right now or else, forget it. We need help, no additional Diplomats, thank you.

  2. THE FOX in 2022 Barbados recorded 43 homicides for your information.
    While St Lucia rate is unacceptable every island has it problems.

  3. The Fox, Jamaica is not a selected venue because they did not respond to the invitation on time. Had nothing to do with crime and besides, it remains the busiest tourist destination in Caricom.

  4. Thanks guys for the information; been to all the Islands more than once, Jamaica has one of the best Beaches but I did prefer to stay near the Hotel. In Barbados I could go anywhere. The V/Fort I once knew needs a good dose of Purgative, and a little bit here & there; it frightens me. So why not let ‘God the Lord’ have His way.
