Commonwealth Games 2022: Which teams have qualified?
8 teams will contest the tournament.
The top 6 T20I teams in the world as on April 1, 2021 made the cut for the CWG games directly alongside hosts England, as per the qualification criteria set by the International Cricket Council (ICC).
This meant that India, Australia, New Zealand, South Africa and Pakistan qualified on the basis of rankings with England.
To determine a qualifying side from the Caribbean, the ICC decided that the winner of the regional qualifier organised by Cricket West Indies (CWI) will earn a ticket to Birmingham. But with the tournament getting postponed indefinitely due to Covid in August 2021, the governing body gave the nod to Barbados, who had won the tournament the previous year.
The final qualifying team was identified through a global qualifier in January 2022, where Sri Lanka defeated Bangladesh in the final to seal the final spot available to contest for the gold medal in England.
Commonwealth Games 2022: Groups and Format
Powerhouses Australia and India lead the pack in Group A where Pakistan and Barbados will battle to try and make their presence felt.
In Group B, hosts England are joined by New Zealand and South Africa, while final qualifiers Sri Lanka strive to give them a hard time.
Each team will face off its group rivals once. Top 2 teams in respective groups at the end of the group stage will qualify for the tournament semifinals.
Winners of the two semifinals will play the final for the gold medal. The loser of the final will be awarded the silver medal.
Losing semifinalists will clash for the bronze medal.
