ICC announcement regarding the World Cup

Dubai: (ICC) says two more teams will be added to the 2026 Women's ODI and T20 World Cup.

The ICC said in a statement on the occasion of International Women's Day that the 2026 Women's T20 World Cup and the two subsequent editions will include 12 teams, the last four editions included 10 teams. 

The ICC says the 50-over World Cup in 2029 will be a 10-team tournament.

"We have long-term plans for women's cricket teams that will allow fans to watch good cricket and invest in global broadcast coverage and marketing," said Manu Sohni, chief executive.

The announcement came a year after the Australian women's team defeated India in the T20 World Cup final in Melbourne, with more than 86,000 spectators on the field to watch the final.

The final between India and Australia was the most-watched women's cricket match.

New Zealand is set to host the next ODI World Cup 2022, which includes eight teams. The tournament could not be held this year due to the coronavirus.
