About T20 World Cup Tips

The best place to start for T20 World Cup tips is with an explanation of what the T20 World Cup is.

First held in 2007 in South Africa, it’s since been held at irregular intervals and since then took place in 2009, 2010, 2012, 2014 and 2016. The next edition will be held in 2020 in Australia.

It’s contested by the best T20 international teams in the world with the winner being crowned the T20 World Champion.

The T20 World Cup normally played across a Group Stage where five teams play for the Top 2 spots, followed by two semi-finals and a final.

No country has ever hosted the T20 World Cup more than once with South Africa, England, the West Indies, Sri Lanka, Bangladesh and India all having held in their country once.

The West Indies are the only side to have won it twice, with Sri Lanka, England, India and Pakistan each having won it once. India won the inaugural edition, after beating Pakistan in a tense final.

One of the better T20 World Cup tips is to not back the host nation: no side playing at home has ever won it. Other good World T20 tips are to back sides with players who have lots of IPL experience and another good T20 World Cup tip is to bet on a team with world-class spinners, as they’re generally the ones who can keep the runs down and take wickets at crucial times.

The leading T20 World Cup runscorer is Sri Lanka’s Mahela Jayawardene (1016), though it’s India’s Virat Kohli who scored the most runs in a single tournament when he got 319 in 2014.

Pakistan’s Shahid Afridi leads the wicket-taking charts for World T20 wickets with 39.
