The champions of the T20 World Cup 2021 – Australia – along with New Zealand have automatically qualified for Super 12 stage of the next year’s event. The other teams who have got a free pass to the second round of the T20 World Cup 2022 are England, India, Pakistan, South Africa, Afghanistan and Bangladesh.

The ICC will announce the complete schedule in January next year.
“With the unprecedented disruptions over the past two years, bringing the ICC Men’s T20 World Cup to Australia for the first time offers a perfect opportunity for fans across the whole country to experience the joy of a live global sporting event again,” said Michelle Enright, the tournament’s CEO.
“The ICC Women’s T20 World Cup in 2020 produced some incredible moments and created memories that will live with Australian cricket fans forever. Now it’s time for the men’s event to take centre stage and claim its own place in history.”
