Indian Captain in T20 World Cup

Each team faces twenty overs in this format and is played under the rules of Twenty20 cricket with the highest T20 standard.

The format was introduced in 2005 and T20I status was applicable only to fully accredited member's teams and some associate member countries.

The ICC announced the granting of T20 International playing status to all its 105 member countries with effect from 1 January 2019.

 

The shorter format of cricket was initially introduced to promote and attract more spectators to the domestic level of the game, and it was not intended to play cricket in this format at the international level. Due to the shorter format, It's become very convenient, thrilling, and exciting for the spectators. So in a very short span of time, it became a most popular format of cricket in the world.

 

The first T 20 International was played on 17 February 2005 which was played between Australia and New Zealand in which Australia beat New Zealand.

Two years after the first T 20 International match was played, The first ICC World Cup T 20 tournament debut in 2007 was played in South Africa.
