The Government of Dominica on Thursday said as per the timelines set by various contractors, it is difficult to complete these works before the commencement of the tournament. “As a result, a decision was taken not to host any of the matches in the ICC men’s T20 World Cup 2024 as it would not be prudent for the Government of Dominica to commit to hosting these games,” the Government of Dominica said in a statement.
