For the upcoming T20 World Cup, the ICC has announced the schedule of matches. The tournament will consist of 45 games. These matches will be played in seven different stadiums across Australia. In addition, each team will have to play three games against other groups. This is known as the “first round.”
Another stage, known as the “super 12,” will be followed. The super 12 will involve the top eight teams in the rankings.
Eight teams will participate in the first round of the ICC T20 World Cup 2022. All eight will compete in two groups. Each team will play three matches, with the winning team getting two points.
