The T20 World Cup 2026 which will be played in India and Sri Lanka will be a 20-team affair just like the 2024 edition and 12 teams have already qualified for the event. Rest of the eight teams will be selected by Regional Qualifiers across the globe, and it would be interesting to see how the lower-ranked Europeans teams go up against European big guns like Scotland and Netherlands.
