Next big event of ICC, the seventh edition ICC T20 World Cup 2020 will take place in Australia from October 18, 2020, and will be played in seven different venues as well. The tickets of the mega event will be on sale from October 8, 2019.
As of 31st December 2018, according to the ICC rankings, the top ten teams will be qualified directly for the 2020 tournament. However, only the top eight will qualify for the Super 12s stage of the tournament.
Sri Lanka did not qualify for the Super 12s being placed outside of the top eight teams. They will join the six teams who will qualify for the tournament through the ICC T20 World Cup Qualifier. The qualifiers will take place in the United Arab Emirates from October 11 to November 3. From there the top four teams will join the Super 12s.
Sri Lanka’s schedule for the T20 World Cup 2020:
Sri Lanka have reached the final of the T20 World Cup three times in 2009, 2012 and 2014. They had lost in 2009 and 2012 to Pakistan and West Indies respectively. However, they had won the title in 2014 by beating India by 6 wickets.
After having a not-so-good ICC World Cup 2019, they are expected to do well in the ICC T20 World Cup.
