“We are absolutely delighted that women’s cricket has been nominated for inclusion in Birmingham 2022 – it would be a real honour to become part of the Commonwealth Games family,” said ICC chief executive Manu Sawhney said.

Chief executive of Birmingham 2022 Ian Reid stated that the sport’s selection can assure that the event will be the most inclusive in history.
