ICC T20 WORLD CUP

The T20 World Cup 2024 began on June 1, 2024, with the USA facing Canada in Dallas in Group A. The tournament will continue until June 29, including 20 teams split into four groups. Ten teams, including India, England, Australia, New Zealand, South Africa, Pakistan, Sri Lanka, Bangladesh, Afghanistan, and the Netherlands, secured spots based on their performance in the previous edition. The remaining ten teams earned their places through qualifying tournaments.

Teams of T20 World Cup 2024 

Afghanistan, Australia, Bangladesh, Canada, England, India, Ireland, Namibia, Nepal, The Netherlands, New Zealand, Oman, Pakistan, Papua New Guinea (PNG), Scotland, South Africa, Sri Lanka, Uganda, USA, and West Indies are the countries set to participate in the T20 World Cup 2024.

Format of the T20 World Cup 2024

In contrast to the previous two tournament editions, the current format includes a change. Previously, eight teams initially competed in a group stage before progressing to the Super 12 stage. However, in the 2024 T20 World Cup, 20 teams are divided into four groups, with no initial group stage before the Super 12 round. This alteration in format aims to provide a fresh and more inclusive approach to the tournament structure.

The Men’s T20 World Cup’s initial phase will occur in both the West Indies and the USA. Following this, the second round, referred to as the Super 8, will be exclusively hosted in the Caribbean nations.

In the initial stage, all 20 teams will compete after being split into four groups, each containing five teams. Here’s how the progression unfolds:

– The top two teams from each group will advance to the Super 8 round.

– In the Super 8 round, the eight teams will be divided into two groups, with four in each group.

– The top two teams from each group in the Super 8 round will secure spots in the semifinals.

– The winners of the two semifinal matches will face off in the highly anticipated T20 World Cup 2024 final scheduled for June 29.
