The ICC Men’s T20 World Cup 2021 was undoubtedly a difficult event for India, especially since the country was hosting; nevertheless, the team will be hoping to rebound in the 2022 edition, which will be hosted in Australia. The preparations for the next edition have already begun, and the ICC Men’s T20 World Cup 2022 in Australia will be held in seven locations, with the final line-up for the tournament already set. A total of 45 matches will be contested in Adelaide, Brisbane, Geelong, Hobart, Melbourne, Perth, and Sydney during the event, which will take place between October 16 and November 13 next year. The T20 World Cup 2022 Final will be held under the lights at the MCG on November 13, 2022, according to the ICC.
The semi-finals will be held on November 9 and 10 at the Sydney Cricket Ground (SCG) and Adelaide Oval, respectively. The Super 12 stage will include eight teams: winner Australia and runner-up New Zealand, as well as Afghanistan, Bangladesh, England, India, Pakistan, and South Africa. In Round 1, Namibia, Scotland, Sri Lanka, and the West Indies will compete, with the other four spaces filled by an ongoing qualification procedure that culminates in two global qualifying events. The first will take place in February in Oman, and the second in June/July in Zimbabwe.
“We’re excited to see ICC events return to Australia, and we’re even more excited to announce the seven host cities for the ICC Men’s T20 World Cup 2022. Our eyes are now firmly set on preparation for the 2022 event in partnership with the LOC, after the success of the ICC Women’s T20 World Cup in 2020 and a two-year postponement “Chris Tetley, the ICC’s Head of Events, said in a statement. “With 12 teams already confirmed in the lineup, we’re looking forward to the qualifying process’ conclusion to see which more teams will join them,” Tetley said.
