The race for the final T20 World Cup spots, which was previously played out as a 14-team Global Qualifier, is now split into 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 advancing to the semi-finals after a single round robin group phase. The top teams from the group stage will face the second-place finisher from the opposite group in the semi-finals, with the semi-final winners earning a trip to Australia.

Qualified teams from Qualifier A include the UAE and Ireland.

Zimbabwe and the Netherlands are the qualified teams from Qualifier B.
