The ICC Men's T20 World Cup East Asia Pacific Qualifier B 2022-23 is all set to get underway on October 15. All the matches of this qualifying tournament will be held at Sano International Cricket Ground in Japan. The three-team qualifier will continue till October 18.
Indonesia, South Korea and Japan are the three participating teams. Indonesia will lock horns with South Korea in the opening match. Each team will face the other twice and the top placed will move to the next stage.
Indonesia travelled to Japan earlier this month for a three-match T20I bilateral series, where the hosts emerged victorious by 2-1.
Meanwhile, Team South Korea last played a match in December 2018, where they faced Japan, Indonesia and Philippines in the ICC T20 World Cup East Asia-Pacific Region Qualifier B 2018-19. They finished second and failed to progress to the subsequent stages.
The winners of ICC Men's T20 World Cup East Asia Pacific (EAP) Qualifier B will face Philippines, Papua New Guinea and Vanuatu, who won the ICC Men's T20 World Cup East Asia Pacific Qualifier A held last month, in the EAP Regional Final 2023.
Vanuatu brushed aside the challenges from Fiji, Cook Islands and Samoa to seal a spot in the EAP Regional Final 2023. They finished top of the table with 10 points from six games, winning five and losing one.
The ICC Men's T20 World Cup East Asia Pacific Qualifier B 2022-23 forms a part of the pathway to qualification for the ICC T20 World Cup 2024, which will be held in the West Indies and USA.
