The week-long tournament will feature eight teams - hosts Oman, United Arab Emirates (UAE), Ireland, Nepal, Philippines, Canada, Germany and Bahrain as they battle it out for the two spots available at Qualifier A.
The tournament is part of the final stages of the qualification process for the ICC Men’s T20 World Cup 2022 scheduled to be held in Australia later this year.
