International Cricket Council (ICC) have announced the schedule for the upcoming Men’s T20 World Cup Europe regional finals, to be hosted by Guernsey Cricket from Jun 13th – 21st, 2019.
Guernsey will be competing along with Jersey, Italy, Denmark, Norway and Germany in the 6-nation tournament for one qualification spot into the global qualifiers, to be held in Oct/Nov 2019 in UAE. All matches in the tournament will be played with official T20I status and will take place at KGV Playing Fields and College Field grounds. Match results will count towards global ICC T20I team rankings, due to be announced during the 2nd quarter of 2019.
Italy will be making their Men’s T20I team debut’s in May 2019 when they play Germany in a 3-match T20I series in Netherlands (Germany will make their debut in Belgium 2-weeks prior to travelling to Netherlands, where they play the host’s in a 3-match T20I series).
The only disappointing fact remains that Africa and Asia regions have been given 2 qualification spots from the pool of 6 teams, while Europe has only 1 spot into the global qualifiers. Even the Americas region has 2 qualification spots and that pool gets played between 4 countries only.
