Zimbabwe got a chance to play in the World Cup after a long time

This is the first time since 2016 that Zimbabwe have qualified for a World Cup after losing to Papua New Guinea in the qualifiers. Along with Zimbabwe from the Global Qualifier-B, the Netherlands has also qualified for the upcoming T20 World Cup.

Australia will play this year's World Cup as the host. Besides, Bangladesh, Afghanistan, England, India, Namibia, New Zealand, Pakistan, Scotland, South Africa, Sri Lanka and West Indies will play the World Cup directly depending on the results of the last edition.

Ireland and the United Arab Emirates qualified for the World Cup from the Global Qualifiers last February. This time, the Netherlands and Zimbabwe have confirmed their tickets for the World Cup from Global Qualifier-B. Zimbabwe beat Papua New Guinea by 28 runs in the first semifinal of the qualifiers on Friday.

However, in 2024, the United States may have the opportunity to play in the T20 World Cup. Because they are the co-organizers of the tournament.
