The Cricket World Cup will return to Africa for the first time since 2003 when the 50-over showpiece comes around again in 2027

The International Cricket Council has announced that the 2027 Cricket World will be co-hosted by Zimbabwe alongside neighbours South Africa and Namibia.

This is second the time that the event is coming to Africa as SA, Zimbabwe and Kenya co-hosted the World Cup in 2003

The announcement was made on the International Cricket Council’s (ICC) Twitter feed and that means Africa will be hosting its first senior ICC tournament since the 2009 Champions Trophy that was also won by Australia.
