Australia wicketkeeper-batsman Alex Carey on Tuesday said playing against best teams early in the ICC Men's T20 World Cup 2020 will give a solid start to his side. While the first semi-final will be held on the Sydney Cricket Ground, the second semi-final will be hosted by the Adelaide Oval.

The opening day of the men's event will feature 2014 champions Sri Lanka in First Round action at Kardinia Park, Geelong on October 18, as they begin their campaign to progress to the Super 12 stage.
