2010 ICC T20 World Cup

The 2010 ICC World Twenty20 was the third ICC World Twenty20 competition and was held in the West Indies between 30 April and 16 May 2010. This ICC tournament was originally supposed to be the 2008 ICC Champions Trophy that was scheduled for Pakistan but was postponed (due to security concerns) and the format was changed from ODI to T20 to fit into the busy international calendar.

4 Groups of 3 countries contested the first round with the 10 major cricketing nations joined by Afghanistan and Ireland. Matches were played at only three grounds to reduce flying time – Kensington Oval in Bridgetown, Barbados; Providence Stadium in Providence, Guyana; and Beausejour Stadium in Gros Islet, Saint Lucia.
