The T20 World Cup is dominated by individuals and teams.

Against Sunday, October 17, the postponed ICC Men’s T20 World Cup 2021 begins in Oman, with Oman playing on Papua New Guinea in the tournament opener.

The event was set to take place in Australia in 2020 for this edition. Due to the COVID epidemic, India was chosen to host the event in 2021 (which was then relocated to the UAE and Oman), with Australia hosting the event in 2022.

The Indian cricket body agreed earlier this year to shift the tournament to the Middle East “while keeping an eye on the COVID-19 scenario.”

There will be a total of 16 teams competing in this tournament.

West Indies are the tournament’s most successful team, having won the T20 World Cup (that was earlier called World T20) twice.

They are also the defending champions after having beaten England in the final of the 2016 edition.

India won the inaugural tournament in 2007 by beating Pakistan in the final. Pakistan managed to go one better in the 2009 edition.

Sri Lanka and England are the other winners of the T20 World Cup.

The International Cricket Council (ICC) is awarding $5.6 million in total prize money.

The winner of the 2021 edition will receive $1.6 million, while losing finalists will receive $800,000 and losing semi-finalists would receive $400,000 each.

Former Sri Lanka captain Mahela Jayawardene leads the tournament with 1,106 runs.

Gayle, who will compete in the 2021 edition, has a chance to catch up to the Sri Lankan, as he is only 96 runs behind him.

While Gayle scored the first century of the event, it was former New Zealand captain Brendan McCullum who scored the highest score — a 58-ball 123 against Bangladesh in 2012.

Alex Hales of England, Ahmed Shehzad of Pakistan, and Tamim Iqbal of Bangladesh make out the top five. Except for Gayle, no one else will be competing in the tournament in 2021.

Shahid Afridi of Pakistan, who was part of the winning team in 2009, holds the record for most wickets in the event with 39.

Two more Sri Lankans and two more Pakistanis round out the top five, demonstrating the teams’ domination with the ball throughout the tournament.

Ajantha Mendis, a mystery spinner from Sri Lanka, bowled the greatest bowling figures of the tournament against Zimbabwe, with figures of 6-8.

Rangana Herath, a teammate and left-arm spinner, sits behind him with a 5-3 record against New Zealand, who were also the opponents in 2009 when Pakistan’s Umar Gul ripped through their batting lineup.

When you look at the highest team totals, you can see Sri Lanka’s overall domination. They thrashed the Kenyan bowlers all over the park to post the best total in the tournament’s history (260-8) before dismissing the opposition for just 88 runs.

And it’s Sri Lanka, the 2014 champions, who are back in the record books after dismissing the Netherlands for just 39 runs — the lowest team total in the tournament’s history.

Yes, of course. Super Overs are adored by cricket officials (better than a bowl-out).

Both sides will play a Super Over if the game is tied (and keep playing until a winner is decided). If the weather does not allow for a super over, the game will be deemed a tie, with both teams receiving one point apiece.
