Yesterday, Nepal and Oman won their semi-finals in the ICC’s Asia region playoffs, and qualify for the ICC Men’s T20 World Cup 2024.
Oman beat Bahrain by 10 wickets, and Nepal beat the UAE by 8 wickets after a tough run chase. Nepal and Oman have now qualified for the T20 World Cup 2024, which will be held in the West Indies and the United States of America (USA).
This means that 18 teams have now secured their spots in the big event. The last two spots will be decided at the Africa playoffs, which end at the end of the month.
It was a big event, and the hosts, West Indies, and the USA made sure they would be back next year. The top eight teams, including Australia, England, India, New Zealand, the Netherlands, Pakistan, South Africa, and Sri Lanka, also made sure they would be back.

There will be a record 20 teams in the T20 World Cup next year. They will be split into four groups. There will be two groups of four teams in the Super Eight phase. The top two teams from each group will move on to the next round.
The top two teams from each group will then move on to the semi-finals. A story from July said that the next T20 World Cup will take place from June 4 to June 30.
More information showed that the ICC has chosen a few US sites, such as Lauderhill in Florida, Morrisville, Dallas, and New York, for tournament games and warm-ups. Florida has already been the site of international games, such as the second ODI between India and the West Indies.
