T20 WC 2024 Round 1


The first round of the ICC Men’s T20 World Cup will see each participating team lock horns with the remaining four teams in their group once. Each victory would fetch two points, while a non-result will see teams share a point each. In case of a tie, repeated Super Overs would be played till we get a winner.


The first round will consist of 40 matches and will culminate on June 18, 2024. The top two sides from each group will qualify for the Super-8.


T20 WC 2024 Round 2- The Super-8s


The second round will take place solely across the Caribbean islands. In this round, eight teams will be divided into two groups of four each. Top-eight teams have been seeded ahead of the WC.


Teams seeded first and second in the first round will retain their seeding in the Super-8 irrespective of their position after the completion of the group-stage fixtures, provided they qualify for the Super-8.


If the non-seeded team qualifies for the second round, they will take the position of the team they knocked out. India and Pakistan are seeded as 1 and 2 in Group A, which means The Men in Blue will go to Group 1 irrespective of their final position in the points table. Similarly, Australia will qualify for Group 1, as they are seeded No.2 in Group B.


The Super-8 stage will take place between June 19-25, 2024.
