Miller rescued South Africa from an upset against the Netherlands – David Miller/Adam Hunger

The 2024 ICC Men’s T20 World Cup – formerly, simply the World T20 – is the ninth edition of the tournament in only 17 years and the biggest ever with 20 teams taking part. It is taking place jointly in the Caribbean, for the second time, and the United States which is hosting its first matches in either limited-overs World Cups.

England are defending champions and seeking a third title which would push them ahead of West Indies as the most successful side in T20 World Cup history. They are in a spot of bother, however. Their first match of this year’s tournament (against Scotland) was rained off after just 10 overs and defeat by Australia in their second match means that progress to the Super Eights could be out of their hands.

There have already been several huge upsets. The USA beat Pakistan, via a super over, and Canada beat Ireland. The Netherlands very nearly beat South Africa on Saturday. Sunday featured one of the tournament highlights: Pakistan vs India, staged in New York. Jasprit Bumrah was the star as India defended just 119.

Where is the tournament taking place?

The tournament is shared for the second time (after UAE and Oman stepped in to co-host it during the Covid-19 pandemic in 2021), this time by the Caribbean and the US after Cricket West Indies and USA Cricket were successful with a joint bid. The ICC has long identified the US as a prime growth area for the game and was delighted the two boards worked in partnership to secure the hosting rights.

Indeed Paraag Marathe, chair of USA Cricket and Leeds United, said in 2021 when they were named joint-hosts: “The ICC has identified the USA as a strategic market for growth that will benefit cricket around the world. A major event in 2024 will be the critical catalyst to improve facilities, develop a professional league, grow the fanbase and inspire public and corporate support … leaving a legacy of facilities and public enthusiasm for the sport across America ahead of the 2028 Olympic Games in Los Angeles.”

Which venues are hosting matches?

Six grounds in the Caribbean – Sir Vivian Richards Stadium in North Sound, Antigua & Barbuda, Kensington Oval in Bridgetown, Barbados, Providence Stadium in Providence, Guyana, Daren Sammy Cricket Ground in Gros Islet, Saint Lucia, Arnos Vale Stadium in Kingstown, Saint Vincent and the Grenadines and Brian Lara Cricket Academy in San Fernando, Trinidad and Tobago – will share 39 matches in total.

The remaining 16 ties will take place at three venues across the United States: Nassau County International Cricket Stadium, a temporary venue built at Eisenhower Park, Long Island, New York, Central Broward Park in Lauderhill, Florida and Grand Prairie Stadium in Dallas, Texas.

Who is in the England squad?

Jofra Archer has been named as part of England’s 15-man squad but there is no place for fellow seamer Chris Woakes. Chris Jordan also makes the cut, with his ability in the field and as a lower-order batsman said to be critical in selectors’ thinking. Harry Brook is also back after missing England’s tour of India.

Who did England warm up against?

England hosted Pakistan for four Twenty20 matches before flying to the Caribbean.

First T20 May 22, Headingley – match abandoned
Second T20 May 25, Edgbaston – England win by 23 runs
Third T20 May 28, Sophia Gardens – match abandoned
Fourth T20 May 30, The Oval – England win by seven wickets

What is the latest news?

David Miller denied the T20 World Cup another upset by ensuring that South Africa overcame a major scare against their bogey team, the Netherlands.

This World Cup has seen a string of upsets, notably when Pakistan beat USA on Thursday. The Netherlands beat South Africa at last year’s ODI World Cup and looked to be on course for another victory on a New York pitch that continues to prove tricky for batting.

Chasing just 104 after a fine performance from their bowlers, the Proteas fell to 12 for four in the fifth over when Heinrich Klaasen was caught in the deep.

But Miller made 59 not out from 51 balls, including a cautious partnership of 65 with Tristan Stubbs, to ensure that South Africa won by four wickets with seven balls to spare. That the margin was that comfortable was only because of a string of boundaries Miller launched at the death.

“If you look at 12 for four, to squeeze the win out of there is good for the team,” said captain Aiden Markram.

With the ball, South Africa’s Ottneil Baartman was outstanding, picking up four for 11 from his four overs, while Marco Jansen and Anrich Nortje were excellent again, sharing four wickets.

South Africa have already beaten Sri Lanka in New York, and will play Bangladesh there on Monday.
