The next T20 world cup will be played in Australia at the end of 2020. After the one year gap again, the T20I world cup will have happened in India. ICC has planned T20I World Cups in consecutive years in 2020 and 2021. T20I World cup 2020 will start from October 18, and the final will take place on November 20. The last world twenty20s happened in 2019. Back in 2009 and 2010, the ICC had organized two World Twenty20s in England and West Indies respectively.
In 2021, India will host the eight-team tournament champion trophy, but now ICC cancelled it and replaced with the 16 teams twenty20s world cup. This is the major reason that the world cup happened in consecutive years.
