The 20-20 World Cup 2022 is the marquee event which is hosted by the Cricket Governing Body. This is the second 20-20 World Cup to be hosted in less than a year. Australia were initially scheduled to host a World Cup in 2020 but it got shifted to 2022 due to strict covid restrictions in place there.
The 20-20 World Cup has given us many movements to cherish from Yuvraj Singh’s six sixes, Zimbabwe beating Australia in the inaugural edition in 2007, India and Bangladesh’s 1-run thriller in Bangalore, and Netherlands beating England twice in 2009 and 2014. Brendon McCullum’s whirlwind century against Bangladesh in 2014.
