The 7th Edition of the ICC T20 World Cup was originally scheduled to be hosted in Australia but due to the Covid-19 Pandemic, the tournament was canceled by the Australian Government. Now, the 2020 edition of the tournament will be hosted by Australia in 2022 as India is likely to host the ICC Twenty20 World Cup Tournament 2021.

But, due to rising cases of the Coronavirus, BCCI is likely to postpone the tournament or should shift the tournament to UAE. As there is no confirmation to that, but the possibilities of the ICC T20 World Cup being hosted by the United Arab Emirates are high. We have to wait for few months as if the situation calms down in India, then surely India will be going to host the Tournament.

A total of 16 Teams will be participating in the ICC tournament which is divided into 2 Groups with Eight teams in each. Eight Teams including Australia, Pakistan, India, England, South Africa, New Zealand, West Indies, and Afghanistan directly qualify for the Super 12 Stage while Sri Lanka and Bangladesh have not qualified for the Super 12s which means they have to compete in the Group Stage along with the six ICC T20 World Cup 2021 Qualifiers Teams which are Ireland, Oman, Netherlands, Scotland, Namibia, and Papua New Guinea.
