T20 World Cup 2021 – The Story

The T20 World Cup (earlier known as World T20) is the international championship of T20I cricket. The tournament currently consists of 16 teams, comprising the top ten teams from the rankings and six other teams selected through the T20 World Cup Qualifier.

The event has generally been held every two years. However, the upcoming edition of the tournament is scheduled to take place in 2021, five years after the last edition in 2016. India was the original host but due to the covid-19 pandemic situation in the country, the event was relocated to the UAE and Oman.

Six T20 World Cups have been played so far, and only the West Indies, current T20 World Cup holders, have won the tournament on multiple occasions.
