Good News Singapore granted berth at global qualifiers for 2022 T20 World Cup

Singapore have been awarded a berth at the global qualifiers for the T20 World Cup 2022 to be played in Japan next year. Singapore's gain is Hong Kong's loss, with the team now having to go via regional qualifiers in order to make the marquee event in Australia.

Hong Kong have been hit hard by a year's absence of cricket with the recalculation of ICC rankings considering results over a period of time. Thereby all of their previous positive results now fall out of the time frame.

Meanwhile, Singapore will join Papua New Guinea (qualifier from East Asia Pacific) and Zimbabwe, Nepal, UAE, who'll be there by virtue of their ranking. The four teams that finish bottom at the T20 World Cup in 2021 will also be granted spots at the global qualifiers.

The 15 spots for the tournament in Australia will be decided through a four-step qualifying process which starts in April next year. Eleven regional qualification tournaments across five regions have been rescheduled to 2021, due to the COVID-19 pandemic and will now feed into the 2022 Australia event.

For the first time ever Hungary, Romania and Serbia will be competing for men's T20 World Cup qualification and Finland will play host to an ICC event for the very first time. It will also be the first time that Japan will host a men's T20 World Cup Qualifier, on the back of the U-19 World Cup Qualifier they will host two weeks before.
