Ten teams will play 23 matches, over 18 action-packed days, at two venues in Bangladesh, the Shere Bangla National Cricket Stadium in Dhaka and the Sylhet International Cricket Stadium in Sylhet as the world’s best battle it out for the ultimate prize in T20 cricket.

On the World Cup’s opening day, Bangladesh will face Qualifier 2 in the evening match in Dhaka on 3 October, as the hosts will look to announce themselves strongly in front of what is expected to be a sellout home crowd. Prior to that 2023 runners up South Africa will play England in the opening match of the T20 World Cup which will set the tone for a competitive and exciting 18 days.

Defending champions and the most successful team in the event’s history Australia will start their campaign on 4 October in Sylhet against Qualifier 1, whilst the highly anticipated fixture between India and Pakistan will take place in Sylhet on 6 October.

The top two teams from Group A and Group B will qualify for the semi-finals, scheduled for 17 October in Sylhet, and 18 October in Dhaka. The T20 World Cup champions will be crowned at the Shere Bangla National Cricket Stadium in Dhaka on 20 October.

Qualifiers 1 and 2 will emerge from the ongoing ICC Women’s T20 World Cup Qualifier in Abu Dhabi, UAE, with the final being played on May 7. Teams have been divided into two groups of five, with sides playing everyone in their group once. The top two teams from each group progress to the semi-finals, where the first-ranked team from one group clashes with the second-ranked team from the opposite group. The winners of these semi-final matches claim the last spots in the ICC Women’s T20 World Cup 2024.
