The ICC T20 World Cup is the flagship international Twenty20 tournament, organised by the International Cricket Council. The first men’s competition took place in September 2007, with India winning the inaugural title. The next edition took place in 2009 in England and saw the introduction of the women’s tournament that ran concurrently with the men’s.
Sixteen teams will participate in the men’s event. Ten ICC Full Members qualify automatically, the top eight from the ICC T20 rankings go directly into the Super 12 stage and the bottom two join six qualifiers in the Group Stage. This features two groups of four with the top two teams in each group progressing to the Super 12. The T20 World Cup Qualifier takes place approximately 12 months prior to the event to identify the six qualifying teams for the Group Stage.
