Dominica has withdrawn as one of the co-hosts of next year’s T20 World Cup citing the delay in completing upgrades of match and practice venues, Cricket West Indies (CWI) said.

Dominica was one of seven countries in the West Indies selected to stage matches in the showpiece tournament in June along with the United States.
