Adelaide Oval will host a semi-final of the ICC Men’s T20 World Cup 2022 – showcasing the city to a world-wide broadcast audience of millions.

Adelaide was also announced as one of the host cities for when the global men’s event is held from 16 October – 13 November 2022.

It’s the first time Australia will host the ICC Men’s T20 World Cup after a record-breaking women's event, which was held in February - March 2020. The final at the Melbourne Cricket Ground (MCG), was won by Australia over India in front of 86,174 spectators, a record crowd for women's sport in Australia and the second-highest crowd ever recorded for a women's sporting event globally.

Newly crowned ICC Men’s T20 World Cup champions Australia will defend their title on home soil, after beating New Zealand over the weekend.

The T20 World Cup will be the biggest global sporting event being held in Australia in 2022, with the world’s best cricketers from 16 international teams competing for the ultimate prize in the game’s most exciting format.

A total of 45 matches will be played across Adelaide, Brisbane, Geelong, Hobart, Melbourne, Perth, and Sydney, ensuring the same national footprint as the postponed 2020 event.

As was the case for the women’s event in 2020, the ICC Men’s T20 World Cup 2022 Final will be contested under lights at the MCG on 13 November 2022.

The semi-finals will be played at the Sydney Cricket Ground and Adelaide Oval on 9 and 10 November, respectively.

Champions Australia and runners-up New Zealand plus England, India, Pakistan, South Africa, Afghanistan and Bangladesh as the next highest ranked teams will gain direct entry into the Super 12 stage of the ICC Men’s T20 World Cup 2022.

Sri Lanka, West Indies, Scotland, and Namibia have qualified but will start the event in the First Round. The four remaining spots at Australia 2022 will be filled via the ongoing qualification pathway, culminating in two global qualifying tournaments in early 2022. For more information click here.
