The 2022 ICC Under-19 Cricket World Cup is a worldwide restricted overs cricket competition that is planned to be held in the West Indies in January and February 2022 with sixteen groups partaking. It will be the fourteenth release of the Under-19 Cricket World Cup, and the first to be held in the West Indies. In March 2021, Cricket West Indies affirmed that the arrangement would be equivalent to past releases, with groups contending to advance to the Plate and Super League periods of the competition. In November 2021, the International Cricket Council (ICC) affirmed the full timetable for the competition, with matches to be played in Antigua, Guyana, Saint Kitts, and Trinidad; the last will be played at Sir Vivian Richards Stadium in Antigua. New Zealand chose to pull out from the competition because of the broad compulsory quarantine limitations for minors on their get back, with Scotland named as their substitution. Bangladesh are the reigning champs.
