“We are delighted to announce qualification for the ICC Men’s T20 World Cup in Australia in 2022. The pathway which culminates in the eighth Men’s T20 World Cup which will be held in Australia, sees the likes of Hungary, Romania and Serbia competing for the first time in an ICC event of this format, highlighting the increased competitiveness within Associate Members.

“In addition, a remarkable 225 Men’s T20 Internationals are scheduled to be played providing a substantial number of playing opportunities to all Members,” Chris Tetley, ICC Head of Events, said.

West Indies won the previous Men’s edition in 2016 which was staged in India. The Women’s T20 World Cup took place in West Indies in 2018 and in Australia in 2020. Australia won the trophy on both occasions.
