The giant T20 World Cup imagery will also tease the event’s soon-to-be-launched marketing campaign, which will highlight the magnitude of the biggest global sporting event coming to Australia in 2022.
Australia T20 Captain, Aaron Finch shared his excitement for the event at today’s announcement of the ICC Men’s T20 World Cup 2022 fixture at the MCG.
“It’s super exciting to be here today and to launch it, it’s something really special for Australia, particularly on the back of how successful the Women’s T20 World Cup was, and hopefully we can replicate what Australia did there,” Finch said.
“Our planning was ultra-detailed last time and knowing what the groups look like nine months out is really helpful because it can help your level of detail in that planning phase more and more. It’s a tough group though, and when you throw in qualifiers like the West Indies and Sri Lanka, you’ve got to play really well to get out of that group stage.”
