Bangladesh to host U19 WC 2016: ICC
The International Cricket Council has confirmed that Bangladesh would be hosting next year’s ICC U19 Cricket World Cup which is scheduled to take place from January 22 to February 14.
“The Board confirmed that the Bangladesh Cricket Board will host next year’s ICC U19 Cricket World Cup from 22 January to 14 February,” a press release from the ICC that described the outcomes of the organisation’s board meeting in Dubai said.
“As part of this decision, the Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB), working in conjunction with its government, will be developing an appropriate security plan that addresses all security risks to the satisfaction of the ICC’s security advisor, working closely with the security advisors for the other Members,” the press release also said.
The press release has gone on to dismiss the speculations of a possible shift in the location of the ICC U19 World Cup, following Cricket Australia’s decision to postpone its tour of Bangladesh.
