About T20 World Cup
The ICC T20 World Cup started in 2007 in South Africa, where India defeated Pakistan. There have been seven editions of the ICC T20 World Cup so far.
The event is expected to be hosted every two years except when an ICC World Cup collides in the same year. In such cases, it is hosted a year before the World Cup.
The COVID-19 pandemic has had a profound impact on the T20 World Cup. The ICC announced in July 2020 that in the wake of the global crisis, the ICC T20 World Cup was to be pushed back by a year.
The ICC T20 World Cup 2020 that was supposed to be organised by Australia was pushed to 2021, and ICC T20 World Cup 2021 that was to be hosted by India was pushed to 2022.
Both countries retained the right to host these tournaments, albeit in reverse order, i.e., India hosted the T20 World Cup in 2021, and Australia would host it in 2022.
