However, the broadcasters aren’t happy about ICC looking at North America as a potential market. The primary reason for that is the match timings. As West Indies and the USA are slated to host the T20 World Cup in 2024, the match timings are expected to be early morning in the subcontinent.

However, despite the complete opposite time zones, the ICC has assured that the matches will be as per India’s prime time.

Last week, Two ICC executives — Sunil Manoharan who is the VP of Broadcast Rights and Anurag Dahia, Chief Commercial Officer of ICC headquarters in Dubai — met with the executives of Indian broadcasters. They will be the potential bidders of ICC Media Rights for 2023-31 cycle.

The ICC executives gave a presentation about what’s in the store for the eight-year duration. As ICC has scheduled one multi-nation event every year including the T20 World Cup, 50-Over World Cup apart from Women’s World Cup and Champions Trophy, the basket will be larger than that of the last cycle.
