After 51 games of intense T20 cricket, we now have the champions of the ICC Men’s T20 World Cup Qualifier 2019. The Netherlands didn’t come into the tournament as the favorites to win it but they walk off with the bragging rights of winning this tournament for the first time after having shared the trophy in 2008 and 2015. The runner up Papua New Guinea has made all the right headlines and has emerged as the team to watch out in the T20 World Cup in Australia. While the final was a one-sided affair and Papua New Guinea didn’t do well the team did impresses with the way how lesser-known players played like a well-oiled unit in the tournament and rightly deserve to be on that plane to Australia. Apart from the two finalists, four other teams have earned their way into the T20 World Cup. Ireland the pre-tournament favorites did well in the group stages only to have a poor day in the semi-finals and finished 3rd. Scotland and Oman also played well to earn their place in the big tournament but they would have to gain consistency leading up to the tournament. Namibia also came back strongly after a poor start to book its tickets to the tournament down under. For the likes of the United Arab Emirates and Hong Kong, it was heartbreak as they didn’t deserve to lose out on their qualifications but will surely look to play better cricket in the future and earn their qualification. It was amazing three weeks of cricket to watch some of the lesser-known sides in action. While some of the bigger names in these teams did well in the tournament it also saw the birth of new stars and they would surely create more headlines going into the future. T20 league franchises would surely have their eyes on some of the players from this tournament. Let us now look at some of the highlights of this tournament.
