Ireland is in pole position to be a co-host of the ICC T20 Cricket World Cup in 2030.

We have been named by the board of the International Cricket Council as a preferred co-host of the tournament alongside the England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB) and Cricket Scotland.

Early discussions had already been held with Government here who we revealed last week have given their initial support for the bid

We were joined on Sport for Business by Warren Deutrom for a more detailed look at what the decision means.

We talk about the prospect of accelerating the build of a new national stadium, the different twists and turns that will be needed before the decision becomes final and the excitement that hosting such a prestigious global event will bring to the sport here in Ireland.

The Sport for Business Perspective:

Ireland is one of the Top 12 nations in the Cricket World and once the prospect was raised of a potential co-hosting, the logic and the will became self-evident. There are of course a number of bridges to cross in technical and financial terms but this is now probable rather than possible and is an exciting bookmark to put down for the summer of 2030.
