It’s a big weekend for the cricket world as the World T20 takes place in India from September 15 to 17.
And cricket fans across the globe are anxiously awaiting the match that could decide which side gets the best chances to win the tournament.
But if you’re just here for the game, here are five things you need to know about the tournament:What are the rules?
This tournament will feature 15 Test matches, four Twenty20 matches and one ODI, which will feature the last three overs of each game.
Each team will play six matches on the same day, but it’s worth noting that each team will also play five matches against one another in the first week of the tournament, which could prove crucial to the outcome.
What are Australia’s options?
In addition to the first Test match, there will also be two T20 matches between Australia and India in the second week.
Australia’s main options are to play either Australia or Pakistan on the second day of the World Twenty20, and then face Pakistan on a two-day tour of India.
Should Australia be successful in both of these games, it would become the first team to ever qualify for the World Series of Cricket, and will be the first Australian team to win a World Cup since a win in 1996.
Will Pakistan make it?
Pakistan is one of the strongest sides in the world, and has been competing in the tournament since its inception in 2012.
It will be hoping to make history again when it hosts Australia in the final of the competition.
If it does, it will be playing for the first time since 2010.
Should Pakistan win its last game against India, it’ll become the only team in the history of the sport to defeat India in a World T10.
But if it loses, it could still be in the running for a spot in the World Championships.
If Pakistan wins its last two matches against Australia and New Zealand, it’d have the chance to qualify for next year’s tournament.
However, if it doesn’t, the team will have to play the next two Tests against India in Bangladesh and then the next three Tests against New Zealand.
What will be India’s line-up?
There are several options for India in this tournament.
It could go with a mix of teams in the XI that lost to Australia and South Africa in the 2011 World T50.
It also has options in the middle of the field, with the likes of West Indies, Australia and England being options for the India team.
There are also options for Pakistan’s side, which have already had their best XI in the last World T25 and the World Super Six in India.
Pakistan could use the team from its T20 squad, or if there are more options in their XI, it may choose to have another team that hasn’t qualified for the tournament for the final match.
How does Australia’s line up stack up?
Australia’s line ups for the three games are:Australia: All-rounder Steven Smith, who will be making his World T12 debut, and skipper Jason Gillespie, who was Australia’s captain for the last four T20 World Cups.
Ricky Ponting, who won the Test series in Bangladesh in 2015, is the captain of the side.
Michael Clarke, who captained the side in 2016, is also in the squad.
David Warner, who has been in the team for the past two World Cups, is in the batting team.
The side will be led by captain Cameron White, who is making his Test debut.
They have a strong batting line-ups for both innings, and they have the captain in Steven Smith.
England: Allrounder James Anderson, who made his Test century in the 2016 T20World Cup, is set to be captain of England.
His squad includes David Warner, Aaron Finch, Adam Lyth, James Vince, Adam Voges, Josh Hazlewood, Ben Stokes and James Anderson.
Captain Alastair Cook is also making his debut in the side, but is expected to be replaced by Chris Woakes.
He will replace Chris Woats in the number four position, which he has been playing recently.
England’s squad is expected at least to include James Anderson and captain Chris Woans.
England have not qualified for this World Cup yet.
If England wins their last match against India and Pakistan, they’ll be set for the fourth-placed spot in their group, which is comprised of South Africa, Zimbabwe and Zimbabwe.
If they lose against India on Saturday, they would finish outside the top three and will have one last chance to make it.
