ICC T20 World Cup 2022 Host Cities and Venues list

The previous ICC T20 World Cup was supposed to be held in India in 2021 but due to the COVID Pandemic, it had to be shifted to the UAE which was not ideal for anyone and it was with limited fans as well. The quality of cricket was amazing as always but it wasn’t the same feel and atmosphere like it would have been had the tournament been held in India. Now, we look forward to yet another ICC T20 World Cup which will be held in Australia with hopefully full capacity stands.

Out of all the beautiful and historic venues to play cricket in Australia, the ICC has chosen 7 cities to host the World Cup in Australia later this year. And every one of these stadiums is a work of art. 

So, let’s look at the 7 host cities and the stadiums the teams will be playing in - 

Melbourne Cricket Ground (Melbourne)

The second biggest cricket stadium in the world and the iconic MCG is sure to be one of the major venues to host the World Cup and the final will also be held at this iconic stadium. This has been a center of excellence for many decades for not just Australia but all cricketing nations around the world. It is so big that some of the players who are not used to playing at the highest level will get intimidated just by the sheer size of that thing. One of the biggest matches in world cricket, India vs Pakistan will also be held on the 23rs October at the MCG.

Sydney Cricket Ground (Sydney)

It may not be as big and may not have more than 100,000 people who can sit and watch the match , but the iconic SCG is also one of the premier cricket stadiums in the world. The opening match between Australia and New Zealand will be held at the SCG and the fans will be treated to some amazing cricket in the World Cup later this year.
