Cricket Association of Thailand (CAT) will be hosting the Asian regional qualifiers for Women’s World Cups (2020 ICC Women’s T20 World Cup and 2021 ICC Women’s World Cup) at Bangkok from Feb 18th – 27th, 2019.

As announced by ICC after the conclusion of their Board and Technical Committee meetings held in Singapore in Oct 2018, the regional qualifiers in 2019 will determine the pathway towards the global qualifiers for both T20 and 50-overs World Cups. There will not be separate regional qualifiers for 50-overs World Cup. The regional qualifiers will be staged in the T20 format across all five regions (Africa, Asia, Americas, Europe and East Asia-Pacific).

Thailand will host UAE, Kuwait, Nepal, Hong Kong, China and Malaysia in the 7-nation qualifier tournament. The top nation from the qualifiers will advance to the global qualifiers in both the 50-overs and T20 formats. All team’s will play the remaining 6 participants in a single round-robin format during the tournament.

All the participating team’s except Kuwait have already played competitive cricket in Thailand in the Women’s T20 Smash tournament a few weeks earlier and will help them in planning a bit better this time around to achieve better results as all matches will carry official T20I status towards ICC’s T20I team rankings.
