Twenty20 World Cup fixtures
29 Mar 2007
By: Alex Crampton

The ICC unveiled the schedule for the first Twenty20 World Cup today, which will be held in South Africa in September.

There will be 26 games played over a two week period, with hosts South Africa taking on West Indies in the opener on 11 September.

The tournament is following a format of some similarity to the ODI World Cup, though there are 12 teams competing as opposed to 16, and therefore 3 in each of the first round groups. The top two teams from each of the four groups will advance to a Super Eight stage, with the top four from that moving on to semi-finals and the final, which is in Johannesburg on September 24.


Group A:
11 September: South Africa v West Indies (Johannesburg, 1800)
13 September: West Indies v Bangladesh (Johannesburg)
15 September: South Africa v Bangladesh (Cape Town)

Group B: (All matches in Cape Town)
12 September: Australia v Zimbabwe
13 September: Zimbabwe v England
14 September: Australia v England

Group C:
12 September: New Zealand v Kenya (Durban)
14 September: Sri Lanka v Kenya (Johannesburg)
15 September: Sri Lanka v New Zealand (Johannesburg)

Group D: (All matches in Durban)
12 September: Pakistan v Scotland (1400)
13 September: India v Scotland (1800)
14 September: India v Pakistan (1800)

Super Eight phase:
16-20 September (12 matches)

22 September (Cape Town & Durban)

24 September (Johannesburg)
