ICC confirms process for selection for World Twenty20

DUBAI, United Arab Emirates -- The International Cricket Council (ICC) on Thursday confirmed details of the process for the selection of venues for the ICC World Twenty20 2010 in the West Indies. As per the host agreement, the West Indies Cricket Board has undertaken to recommend its preferred venues to the ICC. The ICC Board will consider the recommendation at its quarterly meeting that will take place in Perth, Australia on January 31 and February 1.

 The ICC Board will then make its decision based on those recommendations.

“The ICC World Twenty20 2010 in the West Indies promises to be another memorable event and we are looking forward to receiving the WICB’s recommendations,” said ICC Chief Executive Haroon Lorgat. “A legacy of the ICC Cricket World Cup 2007 is the fantastic cricket venues across the Caribbean. On top of that, Twenty/20 cricket has proved to be a big hit in that part of the world so I’m sure the West Indies will host a spectacular tournament.”
