ICC Men’s T20 World Cup is an international twenty-20 tournament which is organized by International Cricket Council ( ICC). Currently, the tournament consists of 16 teams around the world. The teams having top 10 ICC rankings are already considered as participants while the other 6 teams are chosen through T20 World Cup Qualifier.
The last World Cup tournament was being played in 2016. The next Tournament was scheduled for 2020 & India was hosting that. But due to the Covid-19 pandemic, ICC had to postpone the World Cup for 2021 & the host nation was also shifted to United Arab Emirates (UAE) & Oman from India.
The first edition of the Twenty-20 World Cup was played in 2007 & the latest edition was 2016. The World Cup has generally been held every two years. The inaugural World Cup T20 was being played in 2007 & hosted by South Africa. India was the winner defeating Pakistan in the final match. The current winner of the World Cup T20 is the West Indies.

After the end of the Benson & Hedges Cup in 2002, ECB was looking for another cricket competition in place of this. That’s where the Twenty-20 format came into existence. This format of cricket is for youngsters who got bored with the longer version of cricket such as Test match & ODI.
Domestic & International Tournaments
The first official domestic Twenty-20 format was played on 13 June 2003 in England. As soon as this format was introduced it got unexpected popularity among the spectators.
The first International Twenty-20 match was played between Australia & New Zealand on 17 February 2005.
Previously the tournament consisted of only 12 teams but in 2016, the world cup was played with 16 international cricket teams. In the upcoming years 2024, 2026, 2028 & 2030 the teams will expand to 20.
Criteria & Format
The top 10 ICC ranking teams automatically qualify for the tournament. The rest of the places were filled by a qualifying tournament named as T20 World Cup Qualifier.
This year Top 8 teams (India, Australia, Pakistan, Bangladesh, New Zealand, South Africa, West Indies & Afghanistan) already qualified for the Super 12 stage.
