In July 2019 International Cricket Council (ICC) announced that all its 104 member nations, comprising both men’s and women’s teams, were granted T20I status. Hence, in order to make its way into the ICC T20 World Cup, a few teams need to play the qualifiers, which will secure their place in the tournament in Australia. According to the ICC T20I rankings on December 31st, 2018, the top 8 teams earned direct entry into the world cup. Sri Lanka and Bangladesh are the regular nations to miss out and will need to play the qualifier round to enter into the Super 12 phase of the tournament. Finding out the ICC T20 World Cup 2020 date and match timings is now just a few clicks away.

Bangladesh, Sri Lanka to play first round

As per ICC T20 World Cup 2020 groups, a total of 6 nations will get to play in qualifiers of the World Cup, which will be divided into two groups. In Group A, 3 teams will deliver their performance along with Sri Lanka, while in Group B, the remaining three teams will play alongside Bangladesh. The tournament’s Super 12 round will have the top two teams in each group. Following this, the top two winners of each group will proceed to the semi-finals to secure its place in the final, which is set to be played at MCG on November 15th.

According to recent reports, ICC Chief Executive David Richardson said that whenever they host an event in Australia, they are confident that one billion cricket enthusiasts around the globe will be treated to a spectacular show- be it in the form of the world’s best players, superb venues, passionate fans, and so on. He believes that this is the perfect combination for a T20 World Cup and in 2020, they will take it a few notches higher with two T20 World Cups in a year.

However, it came as a surprise that the Indian National Cricket Team and Pakistan Team were not named in the same groups of the ICC T20 World Cup 2020 fixtures by the International Cricket Council.
