Australia to face Pakistan, Windies at 2020 T20 World Cup

Defending champions West Indies will face hosts Australia, Pakistan and New Zealand in the group stage of the 2020 ICC T20 World Cup.

Holder is now leading the West Indies team in a three-Test series against England which began last week at Kensington Oval, Barbados.

The warm-up matches will take place from February 15 to 20 in Adelaide and Brisbane, before the tournament takes place across Sydney, Canberra, Perth and Melbourne. Their best performance was in 2010 in the Caribbean, when they defeated Pakistan in the semi-final, however, Australia lost to England in a tight final. "Exciting cricket. This is the flawless combination for a T20 World Cup". The reigning champions of the women's T20 World Cup, Australia, will square off against India in the opening game in Sydney on 21 February.

Australia will begin their 2020 campaign against Pakistan on October 24 at the Sydney Cricket Ground.

Jonny Bairstow struck an up tempo half-century but seamer Alzarri Joseph grabbed two wickets to lead a potent display, as West Indies took charge of the second Test on the opening day at the Vivian Richards Cricket Ground here Thursday.

In a major coup for Tasmania, Hobart will showcase more men's T20 World Cup matches than any other host city, as we play host to six of the world's leading men's cricket teams.

Group-2 has India, England, South Africa, Afghanistan, and two groups that pass the first round.

While man-of-the-match De Kock sealed the win with his dazzling strokeplay, South Africa's bowlers played a significant role by restricting Pakistan to 240 for eight despite an aggressive 70 by Fakhar Zaman.

Men's qualifiers: October 18-23.

The group-A in the women's tournament includes Australia, New-Zealand, India, Sri Lanka and victor teams of the group selection round.

Australia, Pakistan, the West Indies, New Zealand and two qualifiers make up Group 1 of the Super 12 stage.
