Teams and qualificationEdit

As of 31 December 2018, the top nine ranked ICC Full Members, along with hosts Australia, qualified directly for the 2020 tournament.[8][9] Of those ten teams, the top eight ranked sides qualified for the Super 12s stage of the tournament.[8] Sri Lanka and Bangladesh did not qualify for the Super 12s, instead being placed in the group stage of the competition.[8] They will be joined by the six teams who qualify for the tournament via the 2019 ICC T20 World Cup Qualifier.[8] Of the teams in the ICC T20I Championship, the United Arab Emirates and Nepal can only qualify through regional competitions.[6] The top four teams from the group stage will then advance to the Super 12s.[8]
