2016 T20 World Cup

This will be the sixth edition of the ICC T20 tournament, and first ever hosted by India. The event is held every two years, and staged over two rounds, with the first round going from March 8 until March 13. The two teams that emerge from round one will progress into the second round, where eight already qualified nations including host India will be waiting. India, aided by home ground advantage, will be looking to go one better than the last time out, when they were defeated by Sri Lanka in the 2014 Final.

The other seven pre-qualified contenders include England, New Zealand, South Africa, Pakistan, Sri Lanka, West Indies and Australia. The Australian side, buoyed by their Cricket World Cup success, will be looking to capture their first-ever T20 World Cup trophy. Australia’s best showing was finishing runner-up to England (2010), and will play their first match against arch rivals New Zealand on Friday, March 18.

When: March 8 – April 4
Where: India
