Previously played out as a 14-team Global Qualifier, the race for the final T20 World Cup places is now played out through two separate competitions of eight teams.
The eight teams in each qualifier are then divided into two groups of four, with the top two teams after the single round robin group phase progressing to the semi-finals. The top teams after group stage play will take on the second-place finisher in the opposite group, with the semi-final winners booking their ticket for Australia.
Qualified teams from Qualifier A = United Arab Emirates & Ireland
Qualified teams from Qualifier B = Zimbabwe & The Netherlands
