The prize money for female winners and runners up is also increased

The International Cricket Council (ICC) announced that an Under-19 World Cup for women will be played in 2021. It is announced after the meeting held in Dubai yesterday. The first edition of this tournament will be played in Bangladesh. ICC also said that an eight-year cricketing cycle will begin in 2023. The bidding process for these events will start in early 2020.

‘In examining a whole range of options, the Board felt a major Men's and Women's event each year will bring consistency to our calendar whilst complementing bilateral cricket, giving our sport a strong future foundation’, said ICC chairman Shashank Manohar. 

‘It will provide clear structure and context to enable the growth of the sport and greater engagement opportunities for all of our stakeholders. The move towards a bidding model will give equal opportunities to all Members to host ICC events post 2023’, he added.

ICC also announced a boost with the prize money for women’s cricket events. Winners will receive US$1 million and the runners-up US$500,000. 

The plans laid by the ICC is a part of their commitment to providing equality for men’s and women’s cricket. They also wanted to develop women’s cricket through these new opportunities.

‘Creating a Women's U19 event also improves the pathway available to young cricketers and ensures they have the same opportunities as their male counterparts’, ICC chief executive Manu Sawhney said.
