The International Cricket Council (ICC) Board of Directors has approved changes to the Men’s World Cup qualification pathway for 2027.
The new qualification scenario will be based on ICC team rankings and will feature 14 teams.

The top ten teams in the ICC team rankings at a predetermined cut-off date will automatically qualify for the World Cup. The final four teams will be determined by a global qualifier tournament.

The 13-team ICC World Cup Super League will be phased out after the 2023 edition, which will be held in India.

The expanded nature of the 2027 event – from a ten-team tournament to a 14-team tournament – necessitated the new qualification pathway, which the ICC Board approved this week.
The 2023 World Cup, on the other hand, will be a 10-team event, with all teams, with the exception of hosts India, qualifying based on their ODI Super League rankings.

The Super League is made up of 12 Full Members and the Netherlands. Each team will play eight one-day international (ODI) series, four at home and four away.
