Cuttack, Mumbai to host Women's WC
Cuttack joins Mumbai as ICC Women’s World Cup venue
The International Cricket Council today announced that the ICC Women’s World Cup 2013 will be staged in two India cities - with Mumbai still hosting the majority of games and some group and Super Six Stage matches being relocated to the Odisha city of Cuttack.
On the announcement of the full schedule of matches today, ICC Chief Executive David Richardson said: “I am grateful for all the support ICC has received from the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) during a difficult situation, which was not of cricket’s making. We are also indebted to the Odisha Cricket Association for making excellent grounds available at such short notice.
“We also wish to thank the competing teams and Member Boards for their co-operation in allowing both the ICC and BCCI the opportunity to explore the complicated logistics so that we can ensure that this event takes place on the dates scheduled in India.”
Pakistan’s matches will be held at the Barabati Stadium, Cuttack. The final remains scheduled for the Brabourne Stadium, the home of the Cricket Club of India (CCI) in Mumbai on 17 February.
