Pakistan and New Zealand are eliminated from the T20 World Cup.Instead of Pakistan, America qualified for Super-8 from this group.West Indies and Afghanistan qualified from New Zealand's group.

New Delhi. The performance of the Pakistan team was not very good in the T20 World Cup 2024. On the lines of Pakistan, New Zealand also got out of the league stage. Both the teams could not even reach the Super-8. In such a situation, now the question arises whether Pakistan and New Zealand have also missed out on directly qualifying for the T20 World Cup 2026? Will both these teams have to play the qualifier round to enter the next T20 World Cup? The direct and clear answer to all these questions is no. ICC rules say that the top-12 teams of the previous T20 World Cup will get direct entry into the next tournament.

All the eight teams that reach the Super-8 in this T20 World Cup will get a place in the T20 World Cup 2026. The next T20 World Cup will be jointly organized in India and Sri Lanka. As hosts, India and Sri Lanka are sure to get direct entry into the tournament. India has already reached the Super-8. In such a situation, it does not need to resort to this rule to qualify. Sri Lanka is out of this tournament. It will play the next tournament with the help of this rule. In this way, now the names of 9 out of 12 teams have almost been announced. The remaining three teams will be selected according to their ICC T20 rankings.

After this tournament, the ICC will announce the names of the top-12 teams of the next World Cup by June 30. Pakistan's team is currently at the 7th position in the ICC T20 rankings. At the same time, New Zealand remains at the sixth position. The race for three places for direct qualification for the T20 World Cup 2026 is very tough. After the 9 teams coming out of this tournament and playing the next tournament, the current ICC ranking of all the remaining teams is below the ranking of Pakistan and New Zealand. In such a situation, it is almost certain that both the teams will play the next tournament.
