ICC Men’s U19 Cricket World Cup 2024 Schedule: Shifting Landscapes and Youthful Storms

The ICC Men’s U19 Cricket World Cup 2024, initially set to take place in Sri Lanka, has found a new home in South Africa due to the suspension of Sri Lanka Cricket (SLC). The decision was made by the ICC Board after SLC’s provisional suspension owing to government interference. The tournament is scheduled to run from January 13 to February 4, 2024.

Sri Lanka’s internal cricket matters are unaffected by this shift, and South Africa, having previously hosted the U19 World Cup in 2020, is set to take the reins once again. The move came after SLC notified the ICC about government interference in cricket administration, a conflict that has been escalating due to accusations of corruption and mismanagement.

 

U19 2024 will be the 15th edition of the tournament and the third time it will be hosted in Sri Lanka, making it the second country, after New Zealand, to host the event three times. Defending champions, Team India, will strive to maintain their title status in this prestigious youth cricket event.
