The tournament will see two distinct stages. The first will be a qualifying round wherein teams like Afghanistan, United Arab Emirates (UAE), Hong Kong, Oman will play each other to vie for one spot in the tournament proper. Given Afghanistan’s recent exploits in world cricket, they are likely to be the victors in this round.
The second stage will be contested between the main teams including India, Pakistan, Sri Lanka, Bangladesh and the one team that makes it from the qualifiers. Given the nature of the T20 format, one can expect a few upsets through course of the tournament.
