Mumbai: Sixteen teams, with ten of them having a chance to make it to Super10, feature in the sixth edition of the ICC World Twenty20 Championship.
While India, Pakistan, Sri Lanka, New Zealand, Australia, South Africa, England and Sri Lanka have already booked their places, eight teams — Bangladesh, Afghanistan, Oman, Zimbabwe, Hong Kong, Nepal, Netherlands and Ireland — will fight it out to secure two remaining slots (each in Group 1 and Group 2) in Super10.
India will be hosting the event for the first time with Mohali, Dharamsala, Nagpur, Delhi, Mumbai, Bengaluru and Kolkata will be playing hosts to matches in men’s event.
The first five editions of the tournament witnessed India (2007), Pakistan (2009), England (2010), West Indies (2012) and Sri Lanka (2014) to lift the coveted trophy. Will one of them be the first team to win the ICC World T20 twice or will we get to see a new winner?
Come April 3, we will know the fate.
