All About 2022 ICC Men’s T20 World Cup

2022 icc men’s t20 world cup

The countdown to the 2022 ICC Men’s T20 World Cup has officially begun as the Aussies defend their first-ever T20 World Cup. This year’s ICC Cricket 2020 World Cup will kick start on October 16th, with the tournament starting on October 22nd with a clash between New Zealand and Australia at the Sydney Cricket Ground.

Australia is the official host of the Cricket T20 World Cup 2022. It will be interesting to watch how Australia defends its title against the likes of Pakistan, India, South Africa, Sri Lanka, and New Zealand after defeating New Zealand in the finals by 7 wickets in the 7th edition of the cricket T20 World Cup played in Dubai.

Read as we unfold the T20 World Cup 2022 schedule, squads, venues, qualification pathway, and ways to stream all matches of the 2022 ICC Men’s T20 World Cup.

2022 ICC Men’s T20 World Cup: Background

The event, now scheduled to be hosted by Australia from October 16th to November 13th, was initially slated to take place in India in October and November 2021. However, the International Cricket Council (ICC) declared in July 2022 that the competition had been formally postponed until 2022 because of the global epidemic. The ICC reiterated in August 2020 that India would host the 2021 Cricket T20 World Cup, and Australia retained the hosting rights for the 2022 ICC Men’s T20 World Cup.

2022 ICC Men’s T20 World Cup: Qualifications and Teams

The T20 Cricket World Cup 2022 schedule has already been announced. 16 teams will participate in the 2022 ICC Men’s T20 World Cup to compete for the title. Eight teams, including Pakistan, Australia, England, India, New Zealand, South Africa, Bangladesh, and Afghanistan, have already qualified for the Super 12s Stage. However, since West Indies and Sri Lanka have not qualified for the Super 12s, they will have to compete in the preliminary round with the six T20 World Cup Teams. The 2022 ICC Men’s T20 World Cup tournament format is divided into three stages – First Round, Super 12, and the Knockout Stage.

Global Qualifiers

Previously played as a 14-team Global Qualifier, the fight for the last T20 World Cup spots is now split into two eight-team tournaments.

Following the single round-robin group round, the eight teams in each qualification are separated into two groups with four teams, with the top two teams advancing to the semi-finals. The top teams from the group stage will face the second-place finisher from the opposite group in the semi-finals, with the semi-final champions earning a trip to Australia.

So far, four teams have qualified from both groups.

Qualified teams from Qualifier A = Ireland & United Arab Emirates

Qualified teams from Qualifier B = The Netherlands & Zimbabwe
