T20 World Cup 2021 Schedule

The seventh ICC Men's T20 World Cup will be held in the United Arab Emirates and Oman in 2021. It is set to be the seventh ICC Men's T20 World Cup. The event was originally scheduled to take place in Australia from October 18 to November 15, 2020. However, owing to the COVID-19 outbreak, the International Cricket Council (ICC) announced in July 2020 that the competition would be rescheduled until 2021. The ICC also declared that India would stage the 2021 tournament in August 2020, with Australia being chosen as the host for the next season in 2022. However, the ICC stated in June 2021 that the championship would be relocated to the United Arab Emirates due to rising worries about the COVID-19 pandemic scenario in India, as well as the possibility of a third wave of the pandemic in the nation. The competition is set to begin on October 17th, 2021, and conclude on November 14th, 2021. The tournament's initial matches were played at four venues in the UAE and Oman: Dubai International Stadium, Abu Dhabi's Sheikh Zayed Stadium, The Sharjah Stadium, and the Oman Cricket Academy Ground.

T20 World Cup Winners

The tournament will have 45 matches in total. All teams competing in the ICC World Cup T20 competition in 2021 will be divided into two groups: group A and group B. BCCI will be the host of the T20 World championship 2021. The groupings were chosen based on team rankings as of March 20, 2021. The defending champions, the West Indies, were placed in Group 1 of the Super 12s with previous champions England, Australia, and South Africa, with two qualifiers from Round 1 joined them. Former champions India and Pakistan, as well as New Zealand, Afghanistan, and the other two Round 1 qualifiers will make up Group 2. In Group A, Ireland, the Netherlands, and Namibia will meet Sri Lanka, while in Group B, Oman, Papua New Guinea, and Scotland will face Bangladesh.

Most Wickets in T20 World Cup

The 8 participating teams will play matches in the UAE and Oman in the first round of the competition. Afterward, four out of 8 teams will advance to the Super 12 round. These four clubs will presumably face the team's eight automatic qualifiers. These teams will fight for a place in the playoffs before the semi-final and final, scheduled for November. 

Venue of ICC T20 World Cup Tournament

BCCI has been quite obvious from the beginning that ICC Men's T20 World Cup Tournament Matches will be held solely in India. However, they intend to hold it in the United Arab Emirates and Oman. All the matches of the tournament will be played at Dubai International Stadium, 

The Sharjah Stadium, The Sheikh Zayed Stadium in Abu Dhabi, and The Oman Cricket Academy Ground. 

Team List for the ICC T20 World Cup in 2021

The upcoming T20 World Cup 2021 comprises of 16 teams. Among the T20 World Cup teams, top 10 are ICC Full Members and they have directly qualified for T20 World Cup championship. Of these, top 8 (barring Bangladesh and Sri Lanka) have directly qualified for Super 12 stage of the championship and they won’t have to play group stage matches. As Bangladesh and Sri Lanka could not directly qualify for Super 12, they would have to start the World Cup with group stage matches.

Most Centuries in T20 World Cup

The T20 World Cup format is the same as that of the previous editions. The tournament will commence with Group Stage matches that will be played by Group A and Group B. It will be followed by Super 12 Group where two top teams from Group A and Group B each will play against the 10 teams that have directly qualified for the Super 12 stage.
