The competition formerly known as the ICC World Twenty20 was due to take place in Australia in 2020, but was mothballed due to covid-19. The tournament relocated to Oman and the United Arab Emirates in 2021, before returning in Australia in 2022.
A total of 16 teams will battle it out over five weeks to be crowned ICC Men's T20 World Cup 2022 champions. The action starts on 16th October, when eight teams will aim for first round qualification. Things hot up from 22nd October when England, Australia and South Africa enter the tournament at the Super 12 stage.
Once the Super 12 group matches have been completed, just four semi-finalists will remain. Last year, that was England, New Zealand, Pakistan and Australia. Can the Aussies, who beat New Zealand by eight wickets to win their first T20 World Cup last time out, make it back-to-back T20 World Cup wins?

Watch a T20 World Cup 2022 live stream abroad using a VPN
Even if you have subscribed to the relevant T20 World Cup cricket rights holders, you won't be able to use them when outside your own country. The service will know your location based on your IP address, and will automatically block your access.
A Virtual Private Network (VPN) helps you get around this obstacle. A VPN creates a private connection between your device and the internet, such that the servers and services you’re accessing aren’t aware of what you’re doing. All the information passing back and forth is entirely encrypted.
There are many VPN providers out there, with some more reliable and safe than others. As a rule, we’d suggest a paid-for service such as ExpressVPN which offers a 100 per cent risk-free money back guarantee. If you're not happy with the service any time within the first 30-days, then you can cancel with no penalties at all.
Try ExpressVPN risk-free for 30 days
ExpressVPN hits it for six with a 30-day money back guarantee with its VPN service. You can use it to watch on your mobile, tablet, laptop, TV, games console and more. There's 24/7 customer support and three months free when you sign-up. Try it – it's easier than you think.
How to use a VPN for the T20 World Cup 2022
Using a VPN is incredibly simple:
1. Install the VPN of your choice. ExpressVPN is the one we recommend.
2. Open up the VPN app and choose the location of the service you wish to access. For the T20 World Cup, you may wish to choose 'Australia' for Kayo Sports.
3. Then head over to Kayo Sports on your browser or device and enjoy the T20 World Cup 2022 using Kayo's 7-day free trial.
