I remember eagerly waiting for school to end so we could play with friends, the joy of simply being together, irrespective of the result. Watching the World Cup with my family was a tradition filled with excitement and pride as we cheered for Team India. The thrill and my love for cricket will never fade.”

The first match will take place between USA and Canada on June 2, 2024 at 6:00 AM IST. The ninth edition of the tournament will be hosted by West Indies and the USA, with the event featuring 20 teams competing across 55 games for the right to be crowned ICC Men’s T20 World Cup 2024 champions.
