T20 World Cup fixtures confirmed and lineup complete

The six teams joining the ten highest-ranked sides at the T20 World Cup of 2020 in Australia have been decided and the fixtures released.

The T20 World Cup will be held in seven host cities across Australia from 18 October – 15 November 2020.

Ireland, Namibia, Netherlands, Oman, Papua New Guinea and Scotland secured their places at the tournament with their performances in Dubai. The Netherlands won the tournament defeating surprise package PNG in the final.

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 T20 World Cup will be played between Sri Lanka and Ireland at Kardinia Park Stadium.

Netherlands, Namibia and Scotland will join Bangladesh in Group B, with their matches taking place from October 19-23 at Bellerive Oval in Hobart. Namibia caused a few upsets at the qualifying tournament and saw Gerhard Erasmus named as the player of the Qualifier.

Papua New Guinea, runners-up at the Qualifier in the UAE, will appear in their first-ever major global cricket event at senior level after narrowly missing qualification to 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 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 on Saturday 24 October 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.

ICC T20 World Cup 2020 Local Organising Committee CEO, Nick Hockley, said: “We are thrilled to be welcoming Ireland, Namibia, Netherlands, Oman, Papua New Guinea and Scotland to Australia for the ICC Men’s T20 World Cup 2020.

“We know that all 16 men’s teams will receive the warmest welcome and fantastic support from fans living here in Australia and those visiting from around the world.”
