T20 World Cup 2021- Let the Excitement Begin

The ICC T20 World Cup 2021 is knocking at the doors, and the cricket lovers can’t keep their calm anymore. The 2021 T20 World Cup is long-awaited as the coronavirus pandemic has already delayed the tournament by a year. The world T20 2021 will come after a long time as the previous one was long back in 2016. So, for all you T20 and cricket fans out here, let’s get started with the details of the T20 World Cup 2021.

T20 World Cup 2021 Schedule

After the outbreak of the novel virus, ICC scheduled the T20 World Cup 2021 in October, with the final in the month of November. India is the selected host for the 2021 T20 World Cup, which will be the first time for the country to host the T20 World Cup. However, right now, because of the surge in covid-19, ICC also seems to keep UAE in mind as a backup for the world T20 2021.

As far as the schedule, ICC hasn’t confirmed the schedule for T20 2021 yet as there are possibilities of changes at the last moment. Despite the changes, if things go well according to the plan, cricket fanatics like you and me can expect the T20 world cup 2021 schedule something like this:

  • The first draft of the schedule highlights the probability of 12 first-round matches for the T20 World Cup 2021.
  • Sri Lanka seems to inaugurate the 2021 T20 World Cup and Ireland in October on the 18th of the month. You can also see the two new teams Papua New Guinea and Oman, on the same day of the T20 WC 2021.
  • After the first round, it’s time for the super 12. The super 12 of the World Cup T20 2021 will start from 24th October and go up to 8th November.
  • For the super 12 of the T20 World Cup 2021, there are high chances of India playing against South Africa in the first match post first round.
  • The semis and the finals will be held in November, ending with the final match of the World Cup T20 2021 on 18th November.

Just like the other times, there were qualifying tournaments for the teams. Oman was the last team to qualify for the T20 World Cup 2021, while Netherlands was the quickest to be a part of this grand World Cup 2021 cricket; on the other hand, UAE wasn’t lucky to win the qualifying matches for the 20 20 World Cup 2021 and lost all of their hopes after losing to Scotland, who made it to the T20 World Cup 2021.

Below is the Entire List of the Teams Qualified for the 20-20 World Cup 2021.

  • South Africa
  • West Indies
  • New Zealand
  • Afghanistan
  • Bangladesh
  • Oman
  • Netherlands

  • Papua New Guinea

Thus, this is the entire team list of the T20 WC 2021, clearly pointing out the new names in the T20 World Cup 2021. The inclusion of more T20 World Cup 2021 teams has not only expanded the game but has also doubled the excitement for the T20 2021. Let’s now dive straight into the proposed venues for the T20 World Cup.

T20 World Cup 2021 Venues

India has lots of world-class stadiums when it comes to venues for hosting the prestigious 20 20 World Cup 2021. As a matter of fact, BCCI even forwarded 9 such names to ICC for the final selection and inspection. For the 2021 cricket World Cup, the favorite names include Kolkata, Bangalore, Chennai, Delhi, Ahmedabad, Mumbai, Dharamshala, Hyderabad, and Lucknow.

From ICC’s point of view, they couldn’t send any representative for checking the venues before the commencement of the Men’s T20 World Cup 2021. As the country is going through a tough time, the officials couldn’t focus much on the T20 World Cup 2021 venues and the reviewing of the same. This has even prompted ICC to shift the 2021 T20 World Cup from India to UAE for the safety of the T20 World Cup 2021 teams. Even though nothing is final yet and time will tell whether India can organize and host an international event right now like the Men’s T20 World Cup 2021.
