The ICC Men's T20 World Cup 2024 Sub-Regional Africa Qualifier A 2022 is all set to get underway on November 17. All the matches of this qualifying tournament will be held at Gahanga International Cricket Stadium and Integrated Polytechnic Regional Centre in Rwanda. The eight-team qualifier will continue till November 25.
Botswana, Rwanda, Mali, Kenya, St. Helena, Seychelles, Lesotho and Malawi are the eight participating teams. Botswana will lock horns with Rwanda in the opening match.
Hosts Rwanda travelled to Tanzania earlier this month for a five-match T20I bilateral series, which the latter won by 5-0.
Meanwhile, Botswana and Kenya played the Africa Cricket Association Cup in September earlier this year, where they finished as semi-finalists.
Each team will face the others once and the top-two sides will move to the Africa Finals, which will take place in 2023.
The four qualifying teams, two each from the Sub-Regional Africa Qualifier A and Sub-Regional Africa Qualifier B (to be held later this year) will battle it out for a spot in the T20 World Cup 2024, which will be staged in the USA and the West Indies.
