The ICC T20 World Cup is a Twenty20 international cricket championship that the International Cricket Council organises. There are 16 teams in the competition, each chosen through a T20 World Cup Qualifier.
England is the reigning T20 World Cup holder.
England’s performance at the T20 World Cup is impressive, especially considering the team has made an effort to enter the knockout stages of each tournament. Despite this, it’s worth noting that the team failed to advance in any of its last three games.
In this tournament, England finished at the bottom of the group in its first two matches, claiming the top spot in its third. However, despite its woes, the Three Lions are the reigning T20 World Cup holders.
The title above was achieved in the final match when England defeated Pakistan at the Melbourne Cricket Ground. Despite a drab display, England showed the world why they are among the greatest white-ball teams ever to play the game. With a score of 137 for losing just five wickets, England won the match by five wickets and became the first non-Asian team to win the World Twenty20.
It should be no surprise that the final was won by a bowling performance worthy of a gold medal. Sam Curran’s 3-12 from four overs was one of the most memorable performances of this year’s tournament, while Adil Rashid’s 2-22 from four overs was the most economical in the game.
The winning above runs was achieved by Ben Stokes, who scored 52 off just 49 balls. The performance was a miracle inning, albeit an inauspicious one.
Australia will host the tournament.
The ICC will be hosting the T20 World Cup in Australia in 2022. It is the first time a T20 World Cup has been held in the country.
This will be the eighth edition of the ICC Men’s T20 World Cup and the first one held in Australia. The tournament will be held in seven cities, including Sydney, Brisbane, Adelaide, Geelong, and Melbourne.
During the tournament, 45 matches will be played, and the final will be held in Melbourne. There will also be regional qualifiers to determine the final four teams.
The tournament is scheduled to run from 16 October to 13 November 2022. Two semi-finals will be played in Sydney and Adelaide.
In the first round, there are two groups of four teams. One winner from each group will advance to the Super 12 stage.
The winner of the Super 12 stage will go on to the final. The rest of the matches will take place in the West Indies and the United States.
Several countries will participate, including England, India, Pakistan, and Ireland. Wales will also have a chance to qualify.
Cricket fans can follow the action in real time by watching live streams in their home countries. Fox Sports will televise games in Australia, while Hotstar and Disney+ will broadcast in India. Willow TV will stream matches in the USA.

Sri Lanka is in eighth place. They have lost two points in the ICC Team Rankings.
Pakistan is still the world’s No.1 T20 side with 286 points. However, they are separated by two points from the following four nations. With this, they will give them all to beat the competition in the next edition of the World Cup.
