Uganda and Zimbabwe have both qualified for the International Cricket Council’s (ICC) Women’s T20 World Cup Qualifiers after beating Tanzania and Namibia, respectively, in the semi-finals of the Africa Qualifiers at the Entebbe Cricket Oval in Entebbe, Uganda.

On Sunday, December 17, 2023, Zimbabwe emerged victorious over Uganda, but both teams had qualified for the two slots in the global qualifiers scheduled for February 2024 in Dubai.

Zimbabwe beat Uganda in the finals by six wickets to emerge champions of the ICC Women’s T20 World Cup Africa Qualifier.

In Dubai next year, ten teams will compete for two spots in the upcoming T20 World Cup in Bangladesh in September and October 2024.

It will be the first time two African nations participate in the T20 World Cup qualifiers. The ten globally qualified teams are Ireland, Sri Lanka, Thailand, the UAE, Vanuatu, the USA, the Netherlands, Scotland, Zimbabwe, and Uganda.

The top six teams from the previous World Cup, which was held in South Africa, automatically qualify for the championship games in Bangladesh. These include Australia, South Africa, England, India, New Zealand, and the West Indies.

In addition to these qualified teams, Pakistan qualified based on their ranking in the MRF Tyres ICC Women’s T20I Team Rankings, while Bangladesh qualified as the tournament’s hosts.
