The 20-team tournament, going to take place in 2024, will work in two phases before the knockouts. However, the knockouts will be in a different framework from the First Round/Super 12 format at the 2021 and 2022 editions of the T20 World Cup.

The top two teams in each of the four groups of five will enter the Super Eight phase, where the remaining teams will be divided into two groups of four. The top two teams in each group will then pave their way to the semi-finals.
