The 2023 Cricket World Cup Qualifier Play-off was the inaugural edition of the Cricket World Cup Qualifier Play-off, a cricket tournament which formed part of the 2023 Cricket World Cup qualification process.[1][2] It took place in March and April 2023,[3] with all matches having One Day International (ODI) status, regardless of whether or not a team had ODI status prior to the start of the event.[4] As a result, Jersey played their first ever matches with ODI status.[5]

Six teams qualified for the tournament: the bottom four teams from the 2019–2023 ICC Cricket World Cup League 2 along with the top teams in Groups A and B of the 2019–2022 ICC Cricket World Cup Challenge League.[6] The top two teams from this tournament progressed to the 2023 Cricket World Cup Qualifier for a chance to participate in the 2023 Cricket World Cup. The other teams had no remaining means of qualifying.[7]

In an event within the event, the bottom two League 2 teams (Papua New Guinea and the United Arab Emirates), and each of the Challenge League winners (Canada and Jersey), competed for two places in League 2 and therefore ODI status for the next cycle.[5] As a result, Canada was promoted to League 2 and Papua New Guinea was relegated to The Challenge League

The International Cricket Council announced the schedule for the tournament on 20 March 2023.[8]
