This year’s 2024 T20 World Cup is the biggest ever edition in terms of the number of participating teams, as a total of 20 teams will fight it out against each other in 55 matches to get their hands on the precious T20 World Cup Trophy. The matches of this year’s T20 World Cup will be played in three venues in the USA and six venues in the Caribbean Islands.
This year, some changes have been made in the format of the T20 World Cup, as the 20 participating teams will be divided into 4 groups of 5 teams each. India and Pakistan are part of Group A, along with Ireland, Canada, and the USA.
Defending Champions England is part of Group B, which consists of arch-rivals Australia, Namibia, Scotland, and Oman. Group C consists of the co-hosts, the West Indies, Afghanistan, New Zealand, Papua New Guinea, and Uganda, while Bangladesh and Sri Lanka are part of Group D along with South Africa, Nepal, and the Netherlands.
The teams that manage to finish in the top two of each group will qualify for the Super Eight stage, where the qualified teams will get divided into two groups, which will consist of four teams each. The Super 8 draw will be decided on the basis of the pre-tournament seedings of the participating teams, and their finishing positions of 1st and 2nd in the group stage will not be considered for the Super 8 draw. Each participating team will have a fixed group for the Super 8 stage at the start of the tournament.
The teams that finish in the top 2 of their respective Super-8 groups will qualify for the Semi-Finals, and the winners of Semi-Finals 1 & 2 will compete against each other in the Final of the 2024 ICC T20 World Cup.
