After winning their group in the 2021 edition, England were knocked out with a five-wicket defeat by New Zealand in their semifinal in Abu Dhabi.
Their performance at that tournament and ranking means England automatically qualified for the Super 12 phase of the 2022 finals.

They will then meet the Group A winners in their final group game, who are expected to be Sri Lanka. The Netherlands, Namibia and the United Arab Emirates are also in Group A.
If England reach the semi-finals, they will face one of the top two teams from the other Super 12 group, with India, Bangladesh, Pakistan or South Africa among their potential opponents.
