2024 men's T20 World Cup: Boasting over a billion fans across the world, cricket is set to enjoy ‘fiery vibes' in New York

·1 min

Cricket is a popular sport globally, with over one billion fans, but it has struggled to gain traction in the US. However, the sport is slowly gaining popularity in the country, with the introduction of Major League Cricket (MLC) last year. The men’s T20 World Cup is being staged in the US and the Caribbean, marking the return of international cricket to the US after 180 years. The tournament will be held at three venues in Lauderhill, Florida, New York, and Dallas. The US team is led by Monank Patel, and former New Zealand international Corey Anderson is part of the team. The West Indies, already established in cricket, will also be hosting matches across the Caribbean. The tournament will feature a record number of teams, with 20 nations competing for the title.
