The ICC T20 World Cup is the flagship international Twenty20 tournament, organised by the International Cricket Council. The first men’s competition took place in September 2007, with India winning the inaugural title. The next edition took place in 2009 in England and saw the introduction of the women’s tournament that ran concurrently with the men’s.

Australia are hosts for the first time in 2020, electing to split the men's and women's as seperate standalone events. 

Hosts Australia won the women's tournament that was played in February-March 2020, defeating India in the final in front of a record crowd of 86,174 at the MCG on International Women's Day.

The men’s tournament is scheduled to take place from 18 October - November 15 with 16 teams participating across seven host cities.

Ten ICC Full Members qualify automatically, the top eight from the ICC T20 rankings go directly into the Super 12 stage and the bottom two join six qualifiers in the Group Stage. This features two groups of four with the top two teams in each group progressing to the Super 12. 

The eighth men’s edition will then take place in 2021, replacing the previously scheduled ICC Champions Trophy.
