Preparations for the tenth edition of the T20 World Cup have begun. The T20 World Cup to be held in 2026 will be jointly organized between India and Sri Lanka. As of now, 20 teams are going to play in this tournament. But 12 teams have got a direct ticket to the T20 World Cup. The remaining 8 teams will have to give a qualification round exam. Out of the 12 teams selected for the T20 World Cup 2026, 8 teams are currently in the Super 8 round. India is in the Super 8 round and is also the host of the 2026 World Cup. So 7 other teams including India have been decided from the Super 8 round. This also includes America, which is playing for the first time. While the other four teams are selected on the basis of ICC T20 rankings. This has also given a direct chance to New Zealand and Pakistan, who were eliminated from the league round. If we look at the rankings, Ireland’s luck has run out. Therefore, Ireland will play without qualifiers for the next tournament. Sri Lanka also ceased to exist in the series round. Sri Lanka is jointly hosting the event. The ICC rankings have benefited from this. Hence, Sri Lanka has also got direct entry.

12 teams have been decided for the T20 World Cup 2026. This includes India, Sri Lanka, Afghanistan, Australia, Bangladesh, England, South Africa, USA, West Indies, New Zealand, Pakistan and Ireland. So it is curious to know who the next eight teams will be. Canada, Scotland, Namibia, Oman, Uganda, Papua New Guinea, Netherlands and Nepal participated in this year’s World Cup. Zimbabwe and Kenya’s performance in the qualifying round was disappointing. Hence, they did not get the position. Now it is curious to see which of these teams will get a place.

Sri Lanka Cricket Board and Board of Control for Cricket in India are busy preparing for the 2026 World Cup. This will be the 10th edition of the T20 World Cup. The opening matches of this tournament are likely to be played in Sri Lanka and the final match in India. But it is doubtful whether it will be held in June or some other month. Because during this time there is a possibility of rain in India and Sri Lanka. At the same time, IPL is organized during March-April-May. Therefore, sports lovers are also wondering in which month this competition will be held.
