Africa Division 2 Qualifier for the ICC Women’s T20 World Cup will be held in Botswana.

Botswana will host seven teams in the ICC Women’s T20 World Cup Africa Division 2 Qualifier from 2 September to 8 September. The top two sides from this event will qualify for the Africa regional final later this year.

In the race to make the ICC Women’s T20 World Cup 2024, Botswana will be joined by Cameroon, Eswatini, Kenya, Lesotho, Malawi, Mozambique, and Sierra Leone. Eight teams are competing in the Africa Division 2 Qualifier for the first time.

The women’s regional qualifying competition will be held in Botswana for the third time in a row.

The top two teams from each group advance to the semifinal round after two groups of four teams play round-robin matches. On September 8, the championship game will be held.

The Women’s T20 World Cup is anticipated to feature ten teams. Eight teams have reserving spots in the international competition. Bangladesh qualified as hosts, while six of them—Australia, South Africa, England, India, New Zealand, and the West Indies—earned direct qualification. Pakistan, on the other hand, was eligible due to their ranking in the ICC Women’s T20I Team Rankings, which is maintained by MRF Tyres.

A global qualifier will fill the final two spots. Ten teams will take part in this event. While Sri Lanka and Ireland take up two spots, the other eight will be filled by the five Global Regions.

One of these regions will be the Africa regional final. Namibia, Nigeria, Rwanda, Tanzania, Uganda, Zimbabwe, and the top two teams from the Africa Division 2 Qualifier will compete in it.

The top two teams from this point onward will advance to the global qualifier.
