ICC Men’s T20 World Cup 2024 Format

The ICC Men’s T20 World Cup 2024 will follow the group stage, Super 8s and knockout stage format.

  • The qualified 20 teams will divided into 4 groups of five teams.
  • The top 2 teams in each group will advance to the Super8 round.
  • The qualified teams will be categorized into 2 groups of four teams where the top 2 teams from each group will qualify for the knockout stage.
  • In the knockout stage, a total of 2 semifinals and a final game will be played to decide the winner of the tournament.

ICC Men’s T20 World Cup 2024 Rules

The T20 World Cup has certain rules and regulations defined by the International Cricket Council to be followed by all teams participating in the qualifiers and main event.

  • The tournament is played in a T20 format so that both teams will face 20 overs unless they are bowled out beforehand or the second batting team reaches the target before then.
  • Each innings will have a six-over powerplay and there are certain restrictions in that phase.
  • All the fixtures should last three hours and 10 minutes, with each inning getting one hour and 25 minutes, separated by a 20-minute interval.
  • The tournament will feature the stop-clock rule which suggests the bowling side must be ready to bowl each over within 60 seconds after completing the previous over.
  • Each side will be allowed two unsuccessful reviews per inning. If the second batting team completes their innings by leveling the score, the match will go to a super over (each team will face six balls – the highest score wins). If that finishes a tie, super-overs will continue to be played until a winner is found.
  • If any match is interrupted due to rain or other reasons, the match will produce a result if both sides have played a minimum of five overs in the group stages, which rises to 10 overs in the knock-out stages.
  • If a match is halted after that point due to weather conditions then DLS (Duckworth Lewis Stern method) will be used to decide the winner.
  • The first semi-finals and finals will have a reserve day, but the semi-final match will have an additional 250 minutes.
