The T20 World Cup is one of cricket’s most famous competitions, and the 2022 edition is set to be one of the most entertaining yet. The event will be filled with spectacular matches and nail-biting finishes as teams from all around the world compete for the coveted title. In addition to the prestige of winning the tournament, teams will compete for a sizable prize fund. The T20 World Cup 2022 prize money distribution plan has yet to be established, although it is expected to be a primary priority for all competing teams.
The first round of the competition will feature eight teams competing for the final four seats in the “Super 12.” While the top eight ranked teams have qualified directly for the “Super 12” round based on their performance since the last WT20 in the UAE. This tournament will feature 45 games in total and will last about a month. The final will be held on November 13 at the Melbourne Cricket Ground (Sunday). However, in addition to the title, a team receives a large sum of money for winning the championship.
