At the end of the ICC T20 World Cup qualifying tournament, all 16 teams of the T20 World Cup have been decided. These include the Netherlands, Papua New Guinea, Oman, Scotland, Namibia and Ireland.

The format of the World Cup is such that eight teams are placed in the first round. These include Sri Lanka, Bangladesh, Netherlands, Papua New Guinea, Oman, Scotland, Namibia and Ireland. Sri Lanka and Bangladesh have failed to qualify directly for the Super Twins of the T20 World Cup due to their low ranking. Four of the eight teams from the first round will qualify for Super-12.
