In 2024, the ICC Men’s T20 World Cup, which will feature 20 teams, will be held in the United States and the West Indies.
The first set of qualifying events for the ICC Men’s T20 World Cup in the United States and the West Indies in 2024 will begin in June, with the first set of qualifying events coming from Europe. This will be the first step on the road to the biggest Men’s T20 World Cup in history, which will feature a record 20 teams.
Along with hosts USA and West Indies, the eight best-performing countries of the ICC Men’s T20 World Cup 2022 in Australia will automatically qualify for the 2024 edition of the premier competition. The 12 automatic qualifying positions will be filled by the next highest-ranked teams in the MRF Tyres ICC Men’s T20I Team Rankings as of November 14, 2022.
The other eight seats will be determined through regional qualifier events, with two teams from Africa, Asia, and Europe qualifying for the event, and one team from each of the Americas and EAP regions qualifying for the World Cup.
A total of 66 nations from around the world will compete over the next two years in the hopes of qualifying for the marquee event in 2024 – 14 teams from Africa (across two events), eight teams from the Americas (across two events), nine teams from Asia (across two events), seven teams from the EAP (across two events), and 28 teams from Europe (across three events).
Hungary, Romania, and Serbia are among the 66 teams that will compete in the route events for the first time.
“We are happy to see a record number of teams fighting for slots at ICC events as the Men’s T20 World Cup pathway begins across Europe,” ICC Head of Events Chris Tetley remarked of the start of the qualification pathway. The T20 format continues to propel the game forward, and new teams will compete in ICC competitions for the first time in the next two years.
“Welcome to Hungary, Romania, and Serbia, who are competing for the first time, and thank you to Cricket Belgium and Cricket Finland for hosting a record number of teams at this round of qualification.” I wish all of the contending teams the best of luck as they prepare to travel to the United States and the West Indies in 2024.”
