Limit on squads at ICC events increased to 30 in response to Covid-19


Up to seven additional players or support staff will be permitted at senior ICC events

Teams at senior ICC events, starting with the 2021 T20 World Cup, will be allowed to take up to seven additional players or support staff, as part of the governing body’s ongoing response to the Covid-19 pandemic.

Last year, the ICC brought in a squad limit of 23 – comprising 15 players and up to eight staff – for senior men’s and women’s tournaments, and 20 for junior events. Countries competing at the T20 World Cup later this year, as well as the Women’s 50-over World Cup in 2022, will now be able to extend their playing squads to 22, or include additional support.
