Format of T20 World Cup 2024: 

The five teams in each group will face each other once in a single-round-robin format. The top two teams from each group will then advance to the Super Eight stage of the tournament. Two teams from each of the five groups have been given seeds. For example, India and Pakistan are A1 and A2, respectively in Group A, England and Australia B1 and B2 in Group B, New Zealand and West Indies C1 and C2 and South Africa and Sri Lanka D1 and D2.

The Super Eight stage will have two groups too with four teams placed in each of them. The seedings will have the final say in deciding the groups. In Group 1 of the Super Eight, teams seeded A1, B2, C1 and D2 will be placed, while Group 2 will feature A2, B1, C2 and D1.

This means if India qualify for the Super Eight, they will be in Group 1 regardless of whether they finish on top or second in the first grouping stage.
