This event marks the first step in the pathway to getting to the World T20 Cup that will take place in Australia in 2020.

In sub-region C, Namibia is joined by Lesotho, Mozambique, St. Helena, Malawi, Swaziland and Botswana.

The pathway requires that out of each sub-region the two qualifying teams will be feature in an AFRICA Final, and from the final only two from the Africa Associates will advance to the next round of World Twenty20 Qualifiers.
