I didn't understand how Angular Velocity of Earth is $\displaystyle \large \frac {2π}{T}$?

It's essentially a definition:
The period of motion is defined as the amount of time for a cycle to be complete. We label this time as T. Then the frequency is defined as $\displaystyle f = \dfrac{1}{T}$ and the angular frequency is $\displaystyle \omega = 2 \pi f = \dfrac{2 \pi}{T}$. this is true for any cyclic system, not just rotation.
