The ICC T20 Men’s World Cup has been absent from the fixture for five years now but cricket fans need not worry anymore. The tournament will kickstart on seventeenth October end on fourteenth November, which means a lot of fun-filled contests. West Indies is going to defend the crown and remain an ominous team to beat considering its experience and a plethora of power hitters.
The venues of the event are based in UAE and Oman, which includes the iconic Sharjah stadium. Fans will be allowed at 70% of capacity for those who can watch the match up-close. However, most people can’t afford that luxury and will have to witness the game from afar. The T20 World Cup will be streamed online and will also be relayed by a large number of TV channels across the globe.
