The eighth ICC Men’s T20 World Cup has set itself as the biggest and the best event for this year yet, with 16 teams playing 45 matches in seven Australian cities between 16 October and 13 November.

Cricket fans from all over the world are flocking to Australia for the greatest sensation of this year. Most of the travel aggregators are offering special packages for Best ICC Men’s T20 World Cup to witness this event.

The Australian Bureau of Meteorology has predicted a 90 percent chance of rain on Sunday 23 October 2022, the day the two archrivals go head-to-head at the 2022 T20 World Cup. Some 15 to 30 mm of rainfall is predicted on the day.

Seven venues across Australia will be used in total during the ICC Men’s T20 World Cup 2022, with the Melbourne Cricket Ground hosting the final and the semi-finals set to be played at Adelaide Oval and the Sydney Cricket Ground. The Gabba in Brisbane, Kardinia Park in Geelong, Bellerive Oval in Hobart and Perth Stadium are the other host venues. Cricket fans started gathering at the hotels to witness this spectacular sports event for this year.

A whopping half of England fans would travel over 3,000 miles to follow their cricket team on an international tour, confirming they are one of the most dedicated groups of fans!

With the atmosphere of the crowds (44%), and the unforgettable experiences live sport creates (34%) being the top reasons they choose to commit to watching and travelling for live sport.

Santosh Kumar, country head for India, Sri Lanka, Maldives, and Indonesia, Booking.com said that the opportunity to experience the excitement of an international cricket tournament in person is a compelling reason to travel for millions of cricket fans around the world. As India prepares itself for a winter of sport and travel, they are committed to making it easier for everyone to make the most of their cricket-inspired travels – wherever that may take them – including rental cars, flights, great things to do and of course, unique places of all kinds to stay.

This year’s World Cup in Australia, that has previously employed some of the world’s strictest COVID-19 measures, will see a considerably more relaxed approach. It is a similar attitude to the one taken by the Commonwealth Games in Birmingham earlier this year, where those who tested positive for the virus were dealt with on a case-by-case basis and not necessarily prevented from competing.

But it marks distinct shift in how cricket, and the ICC, deals with COVID-19 given the tight rules applied for other flagship events held since the pandemic started.

The Australian Federal Government’s mandatory isolation requirements for those who contract COVID-19 ended earlier this week, just in time for the beginning of the preliminary stage of the tournament getting underway on Sunday.

The ICC says there will no mandatory testing during the tournament and no isolation period if a player gets COVID-19, instead putting the onus on team doctors “to assess whether it is appropriate” for players to compete if they get COVID-19.

Teams will however be permitted to make squad changes should a player return a positive PCR test, with the infected player then allowed to return to the squad upon returning a negative test.
