ICC release dates for Australia's men's and women's T20 World Cup

Australia's women's team will kick off its Twenty20 World Cup defence against India on February 21, 2020, at Sydney Showground, while the men's side begins its quest to fill the one hole in its trophy cabinet against Pakistan at the SCG on October 24, 2020.

The two sides have had very different experiences in the T20 World Cup - formerly the World Twenty20 - with the Southern Stars winning four of the six previous women's tournaments while the men have never taken home the trophy.

Next year, Meg Lanning's outfit will get the chance to win the tournament on home soil for the first time ever, while Aaron Finch's outfit will have its best chance yet to end its duck with Australia hosting the marquee event for the first time ever.

Australia's women's side will be out to defend their crown, after beating England by eight wickets in last year's World Cup final at Sir Vivian Richards Stadium in the West Indies.

Ashleigh Gardner was awarded Player of the Match for her 3-22 and 33 off 26, while Alyssa Healy was named Player of the Tournament.

Lanning's side will begin their campaign defence against India on February 21, before taking on Sri Lanka on 24 February, qualifier 1 on 27 February, before wrapping up their pool matches against New Zealand on March 2.

Last year's runners-up England will face powerhouse the West Indies, South Africa, Pakistan and qualifier 2.

Both semi-final will take place on March 5, with the final on March 8.

Women's Pools


Group A: Australia, India, New Zealand, Sri Lanka and qualifier 1

Group B: England, West Indies, South Africa, Pakistan and qualifier 2

Men's Pools


Australia has been grouped alongside Pakistan, New Zealand and defending champions West Indies, as well as the qualifiers from Group A1 and Group B2.

Group 2 will see India, England, South Africa, Afghanistan and the B1 and A2 qualifiers.

Australia failed to progress out of the 2016 World Cup pool stages, where the West Indies defeated England by four wickets to claim the championship.

Finch's side will take on Pakistan in their opening match on October 24 at the SCG, before taking on the defending champions West Indies on October 28, Group A1 qualifier on October 31, Group B2 qualifier on November 3, before wrapping up their pool matches against New Zealand on November 6.

The first semi-final will take place on November 11, the second on November 12 and the final on November 15.
