The ICC Men’s T20 World Cup 2021 in UAE and Oman will kick off on 17 October and the Final will be played in Dubai on 14 November.
The ICC has announced the fixtures for the marquee tournament on Tuesday, 17 August.
While millions of cricket fans across the globe will be eager to witness Pakistan begin their bid for the trophy with a high-octane clash against India on October 24 at the Dubai International Cricket Stadium.
“The two neighbours will come face-to-face for the first time since their 2019, 50-over World Cup fixture at Manchester, and this will be the sixth time they will compete in the global T20 tournament,” said the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB).
“Two days later, Pakistan, the champions of the 2009 edition, will play Kane Williamson’s New Zealand at the historic Sharjah Cricket Stadium, before returning to Dubai to play Afghanistan for the first time in a T20 World Cup on October 29,” added the board.
