The 2022 T20 World Cup is back for the second time in 12 months. Defending champions Australia will host the event which starts on October 16 with the Final being held at the Melbourne Cricket Ground on November 13.

T20 World Cup Betting Tips & Predictions: England To Win World Cup

Why will England win the T20 World Cup? Simple answer – Ben Stokes.

Stokes is one of the best players in the world in any format of the game. He will arrive in Australia fully rested and ready to fire England to glory. He will not be the captain, so that takes the pressure off him straight away. The conditions will suit Stokes and expect him to be the star player of the tournament. If Stokes is on fire, and backed up by his team-mates, then England could win this tournament quite convincingly.
