USA and West Indies qualified for the event as they are the co-hosts. The top eight teams from the previous event qualified automatically for the 2024 event. The next two teams qualified due to their ranking after the two co-hosts and top-eight teams.
The rest of the eight teams qualified through the continental qualifiers, including two from Europe, one from East Asia-Pacific, one from the Americas, and two each from Asia and Africa.
The 20 teams will be divided into 4 groups of 5. Then, the top 2 sides from the 4 groups will qualify for the Super 8 stage. Two groups of 4 will be made and the top 2 teams from both groups will qualify for the semi-final.
The schedule for the event will be posted in due time, but the teams and format system is out. The USA is the newest addition in terms of the country where an ICC event is going to take place.
