The mega event of T20 cricket is all set to start in Australia in October. The T20 World Cup 2022 will begin on October 16 when Sri Lanka will take on Namibia at the Simonds Stadium, Geelong. Just like the 2021 WT20 in the UAE, this tournament will also have a total of 16 teams, who will fight to get their hands on the title. Australia will head into the tournament as the defending champions. They have got a really good chance to win the tournament back-to-back on their home soil.
The first round of the competition will feature eight teams who will compete to grab the remaining four seats in the “Super 12”. While the top eight ranked teams on the basis of the performance since the last WT20 in the UAE have qualified directly for the “Super 12” round. This tournament will feature 45 games in total, which will run for a period of about a month. The final will take place at the Melbourne Cricket Ground on November 13 (Sunday). However, apart from winning the title, a team also gets a huge amount of money for winning the championship.
