Sri Lanka and Ireland will play in the T20 World Cup opener

 

The fixture and match-ups for the ICC Men’s T20 World Cup 2020 in Australia have been finalised following the completion of the Qualifier event in the United Arab Emirates (UAE).
Ireland, Namibia, The Netherlands, Oman, Papua New Guinea and Scotland have secured their places at ‘The Big Dance’, to be held in seven host cities across the country from October 18 to November 15, 2020.


Papua New Guinea, Ireland and Oman will join Sri Lanka in Group ‘A’ of the first round, with the four teams competing in Geelong from October 18-22. 
The opening match of the ICC Men’s T20 World Cup 2020 will be played between Sri Lanka and Ireland at the Kardinia Park Stadium.


The Netherlands, Namibia and Scotland will join Bangladesh in Group ‘B’, with their matches taking place from October 19-23 at the Bellerive Oval in Hobart.
For Papua New Guinea, runners-up at the Qualifier in the UAE, it will be their first ever major global cricket event at senior level after narrowly missing qualification for the 2104 and 2016 ICC T20 World Cup Tournaments. 


Following the conclusion of first-round matches in Geelong and Hobart, the highest-placed team in Group ‘A’ and the second-placed team in Group ‘B’ will join Pakistan, Australia, New Zealand and the West Indies in Group 1 of the Super 12s.


Hosts Australia, who have never won the global showpiece event for Men’s T20 cricket, will play their first match against the world’s number-one ranked team Pakistan, at the Sydney Cricket Ground (SCG) on October 24, 2020.


Group 2 of the Super 12s phase will see India, England, South Africa and Afghanistan each face the highest-placed team in Group ‘B’ and the second-placed team from Group ‘A’. Meanwhile, the ICC Women’s T20 World Cup will take place from February 21 to March 8 in six host cities. Both the Women’s and Men’s finals will be played at the Melbourne Cricket Ground (MCG).  The Women’s decider will be played on March 8, 2020. (ICC)
