Dubai: The International Cricket Council (ICC) on Tuesday lauded Cricket West Indies (CWI) for the successful hosting of the ICC Under-19 Men’s Cricket World Cup. The tournament took place from January 14 to February 5 with 16 teams competing across four host countries, Guyana, St Kitts and Nevis, Trinidad and Tobago and Antigua and Barbuda. The event was successfully delivered with India lifting the trophy for a record fifth time. ICC Chief Executive, Geoff Allardice said: “We are delighted with the successful hosting of the ICC U19 Men’s Cricket World Cup 2022. The scale of the operation, hosting 16 teams across four countries during a global pandemic is extremely challenging. “But our hosts did an excellent job to ensure we could give the opportunity to the future stars of the game to play in a World Cup. We share our thanks with Cricket West Indies, the four hosts countries, the players and match officials. “Also, congratulations to India for winning the 2022 edition in what was a thoroughly deserved achievement,” he added.
