T20 WC History

The inaugural ICC Men’s T20 World Cup, previously known as the ICC World Twenty20, took place in 2007. It was determined that the tournament would be held every two years, except in years when an ICC Cricket World Cup was scheduled, in which case it would occur the preceding year. The first edition was hosted in South Africa, where India emerged victorious over Pakistan in the final match. 

England currently hold the T20 World Cup title after defeating Pakistan in the 2022 final, securing their second championship victory. Remarkably, they achieved a historic milestone by becoming the first men’s team to simultaneously hold both the T20 and ODI World Cup titles.

Get Ready for the 2026 T20 World Cup

The ICC Men’s T20 World Cup in 2026 will mark the tournament’s tenth edition. India and Sri Lanka will co-host the tournament which is likely to be held in February and March 2026.
