The International Cricket Council (ICC) has now confirmed that India will host the 2025 Womens One-Day International (ODI) World Cup for the first time since 2013. At the same time, the ICC also confirmed that Bangladesh and England with host the T20 World Cups in 2024 and 2026, respectively. In case Sri Lanka qualifies for the tournament, the nation will host the inaugural Womens Champions Trophy in 2027.All four marquee womens global events are a part of the next cycle of the ICCs Future Tours Programe (FTP), and the venues for all were ratified by the ICC during its recent annual meeting in Birmingham. The venues had been shortlisted by an ICC working group consisting of Martin Snedden (the former New Zealand fast bowler and current chair of New Zealand Cricket), Sourav Ganguly (former India captain and current BCCI president, Ricky Skerritt (current Cricket West Indies president), and Clare Connor (former England Women captain and acting ECB CEO).The selection of three South Asian nations as venues for these landmark global events is another indication that womens cricket is rising in popularity and stature across the globe and within the subcontinent. India is now all set to host the event for the fifth time, and the 2025 Womens ODI World Cup will be the first global womens tournament the nation will host since the 2016 T20 World Cup. The 2025 event will witness the clash of eight womens cricket teams playing a total of 31 matches.We were keen on hosting the ICC Womens Cricket World Cup 2025 and we are glad we have won the hosting rights for this marquee clash on the womens calendar, Ganguly announced. India hosted the 50-over womens World Cup in 2013, and the sport has undergone tremendous transformation since then. The popularity of womens cricket is rapidly rising, and this is a step in the right direction. The BCCI will work closely with the ICC and fulfil all the requirements.
