Hosts Australia handed tough draws for next year's Twenty20 World Cup

Hosts Australia handed tough draws for next year's Twenty20 World Cup”

Finals of both the tournaments will be held at the Melbourne Cricket Ground.

South Africa's first match will be against India at Perth Stadium on 24 October.

The International Cricket Council released the full fixture on Tuesday, with the women's stand-alone tournament to be held between February 21 and March 8.

'Putting on events of this scale are a big team effort and we would like to thank all our valued partners for making sure that the T20 World Cup is not only a spectacular celebration in 2020, but that it leaves a lasting positive impact'. Exciting cricket. This is the ideal combination for a T20 World Cup, and in 2020 we go one step further with two T20 World Cups in one year'.

Australia, who won their fourth T20 title last November, will meet India at the Sydney Showgrounds on February 21, followed by games against Sri Lanka, a qualifier and New Zealand in Group A.

The men's competition, from October 18 to November 15, will feature several qualifying matches before Australia kick off the Super 12 group stages on October 24 against top-ranked Pakistan at the Sydney Cricket Ground (SCG).

For the first time, the men's and women's T20 World Cups will be held as standalone events in the same year and in the same country. The final match, like in Women's World T20, will take place in Melbourne.

New Zealand are one of the most unsafe teams, ranked No 3 in the world behind Australia and England.

This is a result of the present T20I rankings, where Pakistan and India occupy the No. 1 and No. 2 spots respectively, necessitating the two teams to be placed in different groups for the tournament. India's campaign will begin with a tricky match against South Africa while the Indian women's team will face a stiff challenge in its tournament opener, taking on defending champions and hosts Australia.
