The tournament begins less than a year after Australia’s November 2021 triumph in the United Arab Emirates.

Australia was originally set to host the T20 World Cup in 2020 while India won another edition of the tournament in 2021 as it was originally set to host the now defunct ICC Champions Trophy that same year.

However, the pandemic resulted in both tournaments being postponed by a year and hosting rights switched to India to host 2021 and Australia 2022. India was ultimately unable to host the 2021 tournament, which was ultimately hosted in the United Arab Emirates.

Namibia and Sri Lanka are drawn in Group A of the preliminary round, while Scotland meet the West Indies in Group B. Each preliminary round will include two other teams that have not yet qualified. The top two teams in each preliminary round qualify for the Super 12.
