Comprehensive Guide to the 2024 T20 World Cup: Fixtures, Venues, and Teams

The 2024 ICC Men’s T20 World Cup, the ninth edition since its inception 17 years ago, marks the largest tournament to date with 20 teams competing. This year's event is jointly hosted in the Caribbean for the second time and in the United States, which is hosting its first-ever limited-overs World Cup matches.

England enters the tournament as the defending champions, aiming for a third title to surpass the West Indies as the most successful team in T20 World Cup history.

Afghanistan advanced to the semi-finals for the first time by narrowly defeating Bangladesh by eight runs in a rain-affected match at Kingstown, St. Vincent. Their win, combined with other results, eliminated the 2021 champions, Australia. Afghanistan will try to outdo South Africa in the semi-finals on Wednesday, while India will test itself against the defending champions, England, on Thursday.
