Sri Lanka vs Namibia
The current Asia Cup 2022 Champions will face Namibia in the inaugural match of the T20 World Cup 2022 on October 16. Both teams faced each other in the 2021 tournament opener, and now they are locking horns again.
After winning Asia Cup, Sri Lanka could be a tough opponent for Namibia. Still, after the last year’s performance in the group stage matches, Namibia can put the Lankan tigers in trouble.
The Sri Lanka Namibia match will be played at Geelong’s Kardinia Park, which hosted only one T20I back in 2017 between Sri Lanka and Australia.
Netherlands vs Namibia
The Netherlands and Namibia will play against each other second time in the T20 World Cup. In the previous clash, Namibia registered a win against the Ducthes by six wickets with six balls remaining.
The eagles performed tremendously in the last year’s match and chased 165, with David Wiese’s 66* (40) knock. The Netherlands should bounce back this year and perform better to advance to Super 12s.
Scotland v Zimbabwe
Zimbabwe did not participate in the previous T20 World Cup due to their ICC suspension, and this year they have an excellent chance to bounce back and qualify for Super 12s. Scotland played well in the 2021 tournament and should emulate their success.
Zimbabwe has a better chance of winning the match after hiring Dave Houghton as head coach, and they will probably reach the Super 12s.
Scotland lost a T20I home series against Zimbabwe in 2021 and their only encounter in the T20 World Cup in 2016.
Australia vs New Zealand
Australia will start the World Cup campaign by taking New Zealand in the first fixture of Super 12 at Sydney Cricket Ground.
The Aussies did not lose to New Zealand on home ground in the T20 format, and fans want to see whether they will keep their winning streak or not. Australia defeated the Kiwis in the final match of the T20 World Cup 2021 and took the rivalry to the next level. The clash will take place on October 22.
England v New Zealand
England defeated New Zealand in the 2019 World Cup final after a nail-biting thriller and claimed the World Champion title for the first time. The Kiwis took revenge in the T20 World Cup 2021 and knocked out England with a five-wicket win.
Now, both teams will strike again in 2022’s mega event in Australia on November 1 at Brisbane, and we are expecting one more hair-raising match as both teams are in form.

However, Australia finished as World Champion, but this was their only defeat in trophy winning race. At home, yellow shirts have an excellent chance to avenge their embarrassing loss.
