The tournament, in which the West Indies and the USA have qualified as hosts, marks a groundbreaking moment for the USA. It signifies their first global tournament appearance since the Champions Trophy in 2005.

As hosts, the West Indies and the USA secured the first two spots for the 2024 T20 World Cup. Subsequently, the remaining 10 positions were determined based on teams’ performances at the 2022 edition and their standings before the ICC T20I rankings cut-off on November 14.
The top eight teams in Australia, comprising the top four from each Super 12 group, have earned berths for the upcoming 2024 tournament. Additionally, Afghanistan and Bangladesh, identified as the next best teams based on the ICC Men’s T20I Team Rankings as of 14 November 2022, have also secured their spots in the competition.
Shifting away from the Global Qualifier framework, the 2024 tournament introduced a heightened emphasis on regional actions to determine the final spots.
In the qualification process, Africa, Asia, and Europe were allocated two qualification spots each, while the Americas and East-Asia Pacific regions were granted one spot each.
