Men’s 2020 T20 World Cup fixture list
This is the full fixture list for the men’s 2020 T20 World Cup in Australia. Well, we say full. It’s as full as it can be for a tournament where only 10 of the 16 teams are yet known, and only eight of the qualifiers for what is really the tournament proper but ICCspeak insists is in fact the Super 12 that happens after the first round.
The first round is really a final qualifier, featuring Sri Lanka, Bangladesh and six teams who came through another qualifier that the ICC do call a qualifier. What they haven’t yet done is confirm exactly when and where it will take place, although best guess right now is “Somewhere in Australia” and “October”.
The top two teams from each ‘first round’ group will qualify for the Super 12. The top two teams from each Super 12 group will qualify for the semi-finals.
Got all that? Good. We’ll keep this page updated with group details and a fixture list for the qualifier just as soon as they’re known, so do check back. Cheers. All start times listed are local first, followed by UK.
