ICC T20 Worldcup 2020
ICC T20 Worldcup 2020

The men’s competition of the ICC T20 World Cup 2020 will be played between October 18 and November 15 in Australia. This is the 7th World T20 edition and Windies enters the tournament as the defending champions (Winners at 2016 WC in India). India will be playing against England, South Africa, Afghanistan and two qualifiers in the group stage. The finals will be held at MCG in Melbourne on November 15, 2020. The venues for group stage are Melbourne, Sydney, Perth, Adelaide, Hobart and Brisbane. The Super 12 stage of the tournament gets underway on October 24.

The top eight-ranked teams based on ICC World T20I Team Rankings as on December 31, 2018 have automatically qualified for the tournament. Pakistan (2009 champions) and India (2007 champions) enter the event as the teams ranked one and two in the world, based on the ICC T20I Team Rankings at December 31, 2018, and have therefore been kept in different groups for the Super 12 stage.

Former World Cup Winners Sri Lanka (2014 WC T20 Winners) and Bangladesh didn’t qualify to Super 12 stage and have to play First round with other associate teams to qualify. Sri Lanka and Bangladesh are placed 8 and 9 ranks respectively.

First round of matches will be played between October 18 and October 23. This will see Sri Lanka and three qualifiers compete in Group A and Bangladesh with three qualifiers compete in Group B for a place in the Super 12s. The venues for First round are South Geelong and Tasmania.
