West Indies Get Automatic Qualification For T20 World Cup

West Indies have qualified automatically for next year’s T20 World Cup in Australia, CMC News has reported.

Top-ranked Pakistan, India, England, Australia, South Africa and New Zealand are the other automatic qualifiers for next year’s T20 World Cup from October 18 to November 15, CMC said.

According to the report, the West Indies booked their spot by virtue of their current seventh place in the ICC T20 rankings at year end, with the top eight teams, including hosts Australia, securing their places at the showpiece.

Minnows Afghanistan, coached by Trinidadian and former West Indies head coach Phil Simmons, also qualified directly by virtue of their eighth place in the rankings.

Former champions and three-time finalists Sri Lanka, ranked ninth, and Bangladesh, 10th, will have to go through the group stage of the tournament with six other qualifiers in order to make the Super 12.

Six teams from the ICC T20 World Cup Qualifier later this year will join Sri Lanka and Bangladesh in the group stage, with four qualifying to the Super 12 stage, it was reported.

West Indies won the T20 World Cup for the second time back in 2016 when they beat England in a dramatic final.

Since then, their form has been erratic, CMC noted.
