The 100-day countdown to the ICC T20 World Cup began on Friday, with the hallowed turf of the Melbourne Cricket Ground (MCG) being dropped into the city center alongside a slew of cricket stars, including Aaron Finch, Shane Watson, Waqar Younis, and Morne Morkel, launching the “World Cup Trophy Tour.”

The event will feature the top men’s cricketers from 16 countries, with an Australian team led by Finch looking to defend their championship won in the UAE last year. The men’s tournament is being held for the first time in Australia, with the women’s event following in 2020. Finch believes the time between now and the commencement of the mega-event will be critical to his team’s prospects of regaining the championship. Bettors are also excited, as T20 World Cup betting with 10CRIC is starting to gain more and more eyes waiting for the first set of odds to come out.

The trophy will visit 35 places in 13 nations across four continents during the journey. For the first time, the T20 World Cup trophy will visit Fiji, Finland, Germany, Ghana, Indonesia, Japan, Namibia, Nepal, Singapore, and Vanuatu, bringing the sport to new audiences.


What we know so far

Celebrating the commencement of the ICC Men’s T20 World Cup Trophy Tour, driven by Nissan, is another significant milestone in delivering the trophy to 10 nations for the first time, demonstrating our commitment to utilize the T20 format as a vehicle to expand the game and engage new fans worldwide. With just 100 days until the commencement of the ICC Men’s T20 World Cup, there is a palpable feeling of anticipation as the 16 sides gather in Australia to vie for the highest prize in T20 cricket.

The Trophy Tour will visit 35 cities in 13 countries and 4 continents, more than ever before. The Men’s T20 World Cup trophy will stop in Fiji, Finland, Germany, Ghana, Indonesia, Japan, Namibia, Nepal, Singapore, and Vanuatu for the first time, allowing more people to experience the sport’s biggest prize. Fans will be able to participate in The Trophy Tour from the comfort of their own homes by utilizing a 3D augmented reality filter featured on the official T20 World Cup Facebook and Instagram pages. The Trophy Tour is designed for anybody, anywhere, at any time.

Fans expected to show huge support
The ICC Men’s T20 World Cup 2022 is predicted to attract over 800,000 spectators owing to the additional tickets made available today for all games save the October 23 match between India and Pakistan. General admission tickets for this match were completely sold out in less than five minutes when they went on sale to the general public in February. If more seats for the event become available, they will be made available later.

With so many world-class teams coming to play around the country, it’s an exciting moment for cricket. With only 100 days to go, you can sense the team’s enthusiasm at the thought of playing in a home World Cup in front of our supporters. Every game at a World Cup is a challenging game, and anyone can beat anyone on their day, so the white-ball cricket we have coming up over the next few months will be critical to ensuring we are ready for the first ball of the World Cup in October.

Australia on defense
Australia is also the reigning ICC T20 World Cup winner, having won the event in 2021 in the UAE. It was their first T20 World Cup victory. The Australians will be keen to defend their championship in front of their home crowd and will start as one of the heavy favorites because of their familiarity with the pitches and circumstances.
