The T20 Cricket World Cup will finally be back after five long years. The prestigious cricket tournament is set to kick off on October 17 in the UAE. This was supposed to be held in India but it had to be postponed because of the COVID 19 pandemic. It was also initially thought to be held in Australia but the ICC decided for it to be held at different four different venues in the UAE and Oman.

This edition of the tournament will have a total of 16 teams. With that, the Cricket World Cup 2021 live betting

2021 World Cup Format and Point System

The whole tournament will be divided into three stages and this edition will also have a shorter format than usual. During the first round, a total of eight teams will be playing and they will be grouped in two. Group A has Ireland, Namibia, Netherlands, and Sri Lanka. Group B has Bangladesh, Oman, Papua New Guinea, and Scotland. All teams will take part in a round-robin.

The top team from Group A and the second from Group B will be part of Group 1 on the next round which is the Super 12. Group B’s top team and Group A’s second place will then be part of Group 2.

Super 12 will then have another two groups with six other teams and the top two teams from Round 1. For this round, Group 1 has Australia, England, South Africa, West Indies, A1, and B2. Group 2 has Afghanistan, India, New Zealand, Pakistan, A2, and B1. The teams advancing from the Super 12 stage will move on to the knock-out stage which has two semi-finals and the final.

Only one point system will be followed throughout the group stages and it is as follows:

  • Two points for a win
  • One point for a tie, no result, or abandoned match
  • No point for a loss or forfeit
