ICC Men’s T20 World Cup 2022 will be the seventh edition of the tournament, which was first held in 2007 and features 16 international teams competing over 44 days. Held every four years, the World Cup takes place in the same year as its summer counterpart, although originally this wasn’t the case as the T20 format was not added to the International Cricket Council’s events until 2005; before that date, it was known as the ICC World Twenty20 and was only played every three years since it started in 2004.
The information coming straight from the Men’s T20 World Cup in 2022, there will be 16 confirmed teams, who will compete in 45 matches across seven sites. These seven locations have not yet been announced however, all 16 qualifying countries will host at least one match.
A Brief History of the ICC Men’s T20 World Cup
The ICC Men’s Cricket World Cup has been contested since 1975 and is the only world cricket competition where all of the best players from each nation get to compete. The ICC Men’s Cricket World Cup is different from other international competitions because it contains 16 teams (24 for the 2023 World Cup) that compete across three stages: Qualifier, Super 10s, and Semi-Finals.
The winner of the event gets their name inscribed on the coveted Cricket World Cup Trophy, which sits alongside football’s FIFA World Cup as one of the sport’s most iconic trophies. The first ever ICC Men’s Cricket World Cup was hosted by England in 1975.
The ICC Men’s Cricket World Cup has been hosted by eight different nations with Australia being responsible for hosting three and jointly hosting one. England has been an ICC Men’s Cricket World Cup host four times, New Zealand once, India and Pakistan once each, and West Indies twice.

The next scheduled ICC Men’s Cricket World Cup is set to take place in 2023 and will also be hosted by England alongside Wales. During that tournament, 32 nations are expected to compete for over 44 days of play across two countries.
