The second and third teams in each group play the Qualifying Play-Offs 1 and 2. The winners of those Play-Off games qualify for the T20 World Cup, and join the toppers of the group stage to complete the semi-final line-up.

The losers of Play-Offs 1 and 2 play the fourth-ranked teams in the group stage in the Qualifying Play-Offs 3 and 4. The winners of these matches take the final two T20 World Cup spots.
