It will feature thirteen countries, the twelve Full members of the International Cricket Council (ICC) and the Netherlands, who won the 2015–17 ICC World Cricket League Championship to qualify for this competition.[5] Each team will play an ODI series against eight of the twelve opponents, four series at home and four away. Each series will consist of three ODIs.[6]

In addition, the 13th ranked team in the Super League could potentially get relegated to the Cricket World Cup League 2. With the top 12 teams in the 2020–22 ICC Cricket World Cup Super League automatically qualifying for the next Cricket World Cup Super League, the 13th spot will be taken by one of either the 13th ranked team in 2020–22 ICC Cricket World Cup Super League or the champions of the 2019–22 ICC Cricket World Cup League 2. Whichever of these teams is ranked higher in the Cricket World Cup Qualifier will take the 13th spot in the next CWC Super League while the team ranked lower will play in the next Cricket World Cup League 2.[7][8]
