BCCI has successfully bid for the Women’s World Cup during the ICC Annual Conference that concluded in Birmingham. India is all set to be the host of an ODI women’s World cup in 2025. This will be the fourth time that India will host the mega event. The last time a women’s 50-over World Cup was held in India was back in 2013 when Australia emerged champions after beating the West Indies by 114 runs in the finals.
We were keen on hosting the ICC Women’s Cricket World Cup 2025 and we are glad we have won the hosting rights for this marquee clash on the women’s calendar,” The sport has undergone tremendous transformation since then. The popularity of women’s cricket is rapidly rising, and this is a step in the right direction. The BCCI will work closely with the ICC and fulfill all the requirements.” BCCI president Sourav Ganguly was quoted as saying in an ICC release.
BCCI secretary Jay Shah said: “We are taking several steps to raise the profile of the sport right from the grassroots level and hosting the World Cup will further boost the popularity of the sport in the country. The BCCI remains committed to women’s cricket in India. We have the infrastructure in place, and I am confident we will have a very successful edition of the World Cup.”
