Cricket’s biggest global tournament is heading Down Under this summer. The T20 World Cup is taking place across October and November with Australia looking to defend the title that they won in the UAE last year.
Stadiums around the country are hosting the competition and, while tickets are selling fast, it’s still possible to watch a game live at some of the venues. Here are the grounds in question along with a quick guide to the 2022 T20 World Cup.
The Teams in Contention
The good news for travelling English supporters is that their team is up with the favourites. The outright winner betting for this year’s World Cup shows Jos Buttler’s side at the top, along with India and Australia.
There’s plenty of interest in India too and those odds are supplied by top bookies in the country. Sources are supplied by Asiabet and they are replicated across the world.
As the days run down to the start of the World Cup, there may be some adjustments to the betting. Any updates that do come in will be clearly shown on the website, while additional information is provided.
Opinion articles and breaking news will also be in place while each sportsbook also receives an extensive review. Readers can take their time to study that information before deciding whether they want to place a bet. Access to the markets is available via the Asiabet site with all bookmakers ready to take on new players.
In return for completing a fast and secure online registration process, it’s likely that a generous welcome bonus will be waiting on the other side. A large range of deposit providers can help to get that account moving and, if there are any queries, customer services can deal with these.
Additional benefits will be provided for those that continue to stake. Customers can usually expect to see ongoing promos, mobile betting and the potential for live streaming top class cricket.
It’s very much the ‘go to’ site for any form of cricket betting, but, for those watching the World Cup in person, here is a roundup of those venues.
The 2022 World Cup starts with an initial set of qualifiers. Eight of the weaker nations are split into two groups of four. Within those sections, teams play each other once and the top two countries in the two groups proceed to the next phase.
Two separate stadiums will host this part of the tournament. In Group A, all games will be played at Geelong’s Kardinia Park. Over in Group B, the Bellerive Oval in Hobart will enjoy exclusive hosting duties.
The two best teams in each qualifying group will then join eight other nations in the Super 12s. This is where the big teams such as Australia, England, Pakistan, South Africa and India will get involved.
Hosting duties expand at this point and some of the more familiar Australian cricket grounds will take over. Australia will begin their defence of the title with a game against cross-Tasman rivals New Zealand at the Sydney Cricket Ground on October 22nd.
The SCG will continue to host games during this section of the competition while there will be many other familiar stadiums in play. The Melbourne Cricket Ground, The Adelaide Oval, the Gabba at Brisbane, the Perth Stadium and the Bellerive Oval will all host games in Group 1 of the Super 12s.
Over in Group 2, the matches will be distributed between the same five grounds. Perhaps the highlight in this section comes along on October 23rd when India are set to take on Pakistan at the MCG.
At the conclusion of the Super 12 stage, the top four teams will progress directly to the semifinals. On November 9th, the first of those semis will take place at the Sydney Cricket Ground. A day later, the Adelaide Oval takes on hosting duties for the second semifinal.
Ultimately, the World Cup will come down to the final which will be held at the Melbourne Cricket Ground on November 13th. There’s a feast of T20 cricket to look forward, to and this handy guide to venues means that you needn’t miss out on a single game.
