ICC Men’s T20 World Cup 2022 is scheduled to start on October 16 in Australia. The preparations for the tournament have already begun, with only a little more than a month remaining until the grand event begins.
Australia will host the eighth Men’s T20 World Cup. Australia won their first T20 World Cup victory by defeating New Zealand by 7 wickets in the final, which was hosted in the United Arab Emirates instead of India, due to an unprecedented rise of covid cases.
It will be interesting to see how Australia manage their journey to the second world cup Twenty20 trophy as they will be defending their title against teams like India, Pakistan, New Zealand, South Africa, and England.
