“We are delighted to announce the groups for the ICC Men’s T20 World Cup 2021. There are some great matchups offered by the groups and it starts to bring the event to life for our fans as our first multi-team event since the onset of the global pandemic draws closer,” said ICC Acting Chief Executive Geoff Allardice.

The first round will be challenged by eight teams comprising qualifiers Sri Lanka and Bangladesh with the other six who finalized their spot in the qualification in 2019.

Ireland, Netherlands and Namibia will join Sri Lanka in Group A while Bangladesh will be enlisted by Oman, Papua New Guinea and Scotland in Group B.
