Speaking to a press conference in an exclusive chat, here’s what Aaron Jones had to say about the USA co-hosting the showpiece event in 2024:

“I definitely think hosting the T20 World Cup will bring a lot of attention to cricket in USA. I feel a lot of people in the USA don’t really have much knowledge about cricket. But the World Cup, biggest stage in cricket, will definitely bring a lot of knowledge of the game. Even if they don’t show a lot of interest in the beginning, they are gonna watch it for sure.”
