New York, the vibrant metropolis, will host eight thrilling matches, while Grand Prairie and Lauderhill will each witness four electrifying encounters. As co-hosts, the West Indies will feature matches at iconic cricketing venues across their picturesque islands, including Antigua and Barbuda, Barbados, Guyana, Saint Lucia, Saint Vincent and the Grenadines, and Trinidad and Tobago.
