No Women's World Cup Matches at Wankhede, MIG Club

The Wankhede Stadium and MIG Club Ground, which were to host the matches of the upcoming ICC Women's World Cup, have been withdrawn as venues for the tournament, it is learnt here today.

Wankhede was scheduled to hold the opening match of the event on January 31 but the match is expected to be shifted to another ground as it is now all set to host the Ranji Trophy final between Mumbai and Saurashtra (January 26-30).

"There won't be any Women's World Cup matches at Wankhede and MIG," the sources in the BCCI informed.

The mega-event is scheduled to be held from January 31 to February 17.

Wankhede and MIG in Bandra were earlier scheduled to hold the World Cup matches besides the Cricket Club of India's Brabourne Stadium, the Mumbai Cricket Association's (MCA) Bandra-Kurla Complex Ground and Barabati Stadium in Cuttack, Odisha.

All the Group A matches, featuring England, India, West

Indies and Sri Lanka will be played at Brabourne Stadium and MCA's Bandra-Kurla Complex Ground.

BCCI or the ICC are yet to make an official announcement about the venue changes.
