The format of the tournament is the same as 2019, with all teams facing each other once and the top four advancing to the semi-finals. India, by the virtue of being the hosts, attained automatic qualification while while New Zealand, England, Bangladesh, Pakistan, Australia, Afghanistan and South Africa advanced from the Super League. Sri Lanka and Netherlands were the last two teams to qualify after playing in the qualifiers.

England and New Zealand to get the tournament underway:

Defending champions England and New Zealand will kickstart the event on October 5th in Ahmedabad. The two sides played a heart-stopping final in 2019 at Lord's, with England prevailing after a super over by the virtue of boundary count. The Englishmen also defeated the Kiwis in a recent four-match ODI series.

Hosts India will start their tournament against Australia on October 8th at the Chidambaram Stadium in Chennai.
