2023 ICC Men's T20 World Cup Americas Qualifier

The 2023 ICC Men's T20 World Cup Americas Qualifier was a cricket tournament that formed part of the qualification process for the 2024 ICC Men's T20 World Cup.[1][2] The first stage of the qualification pathway in the Americas region was the sub-regional qualifier, played in Argentina between 25 February and 4 March 2023.[3] The top three teams in the sub-regional qualifier progressed to the Americas regional final, which was played in Bermuda between 30 September and 7 October 2023,[4] where they were joined by Canada, who competed in the 2022 ICC Men's T20 World Cup Global Qualifier A in Oman. The winner of the Americas Regional Final qualified for the 2024 ICC Men's T20 World Cup. The West Indies and the United States, qualified for the World Cup as hosts.[5]

Bermuda were the first team to advance from the sub-regional qualifier after winning their opening three matches.[6] They went on to win their final game, against Bahamas, to seal a sweep of victories and finish top of the points table.[7] Cayman Islands and Panama were the other two qualifiers from the sub-regional tournament.[8] Canada defeated Bermuda in the final game of the regional final to secure a place at the 2024 T20 World Cup due to net run rate.[9]
