New format for ICC T20 World Cup 2024

New format for ICC T20 World Cup 2024

The 2022 edition of the ICC T20 World Cup just ended a few days ago, and the International Cricket Council (ICC), including the participants, now gearing up for T20 World Cup 2024, set to be hosted by UAE and West Indies.

Unlike the World Cup 2022, the 2024 edition will be run following the new set of rules, revealed by ICC on Monday. While announcing new rules on their website, the ICC said,

The top two teams in each of the four groups of five will move to a Super Eight phase, where the remaining sides will be split into two groups of four. The top two in each group will then make their way to the semi-finals.

As far as the participants are concerned, the hosts have automatically made it to the event. From there, performances at the 2022 edition and the ICC T20I rankings cut-off on November 14 determined the next ten teams.

The top eight teams in Australia (top four in each Super 12 group) gained spots for the 2024 tournament, with Afghanistan and Bangladesh, the next best teams on the MRF Tyres ICC Men’s T20I Team Rankings, also securing their spot.
