The 2020 Men and Women’s Cricket T20 World Cups make their way to the host nation of Australia next year, with both tournaments live on Nine.
The top men’s and women’s international sides will converge on Australia’s best cricket grounds to compete for the greatest prize in the short form of the game.
The women’s World Cup commences on February 21, with the men’s World Cup starting later in the year, on October 18.
The Australian women will go in as hot hometown favourites, fielding a team packed with superstars of world sport including Ellyse Perry, Alyssa Healy and Meg Lanning.
The final at the Melbourne Cricket Ground will be a great opportunity to set a new world record for attendance at a women’s sporting fixture.
The Aussie men will be fired up after a great showing at this year’s ODI World Cup – and also retaining The Ashes – and they rank among the favourites to win the trophy.
Both the ODI World Cup and The Ashes proved to be huge ratings successes for Nine, breaking records and featuring some of the most gripping finishes to cricket matches in history.
Steve Smith, Dave Warner and Mitchell Starc will be three of the superstars leading Australia as we aim for our first ever men’s T20 World Cup victory.
