The inaugural edition winner India will open their campaign against their arch-rivals Pakistan on October 24.
The ICC T20 World Cup was moved from India due to coronavirus pandemic to the UAE and Oman. The tournament was started way back in 2007. The inaugural edition was held in South Africa and India lifted the championship under the leadership of M.S. Dhoni.
The second edition (2009) was held in England, and Pakistan lifted the trophy. In 2010, West Indies hosted the event and England won the cup. In 2012, Sri Lanka hosted the event and West Indies was the winner.
In 2014, Bangladesh hosted the ICC T20 World Cup, Sri Lanka defeated India to lift the championship. In 2016, the event was held in India and West Indies lifted the trophy for the second time.
In 2021, the first round of the tournament will see eight teams in two groups — the top two teams in either group move to the Super 12 stage. Host Oman, Bangladesh, Scotland, and Papua New Guinea are in Group A. Former champion Sri Lanka, Netherlands, Ireland, Namibia are in Group B.
The Super 12s contain 2016 finalists West Indies and England in Group 1 alongside Australia and South Africa. India, Pakistan, New Zealand and Afghanistan are slotted in Group 2. The top two teams in each group progress to the semifinal.
India will clash with arch-rivals Pakistan in their ICC T20 World Cup opener on October 24 in Dubai, the ICC announced on Tuesday.
