The ICC Men’s T20 World Cup is usually organized by the International Cricket Council (ICC) at intervals of 2 years, but sometimes it is also held at intervals of only one year. West Indies is the current champion of the ICC T20 Cricket World Cup.
Its first edition was played in South Africa in 2007 and the upcoming tournament will be hosted by India in 2021.
The Indian team won the first edition of the ICC T20 Cricket World Cup tournament by defeating their arch-rival Pakistan by 5 runs. I think everyone will remember the final over of that exciting match when India defeated Pakistan in the last over.
India had hosted the Men’s Cricket T20 World Cup in 2016 and now India will also host the 2021 ICC T20 Cricket World Cup.
It is expected that the Indian team will do its best to become the world champion once again.
