The 2015 ICC World Twenty20 Qualifier, for the "2016 World Twenty20, was held from 6 to 26 July 2015.[2] The tournament was hosted by both "Ireland and "Scotland. 51 matches were played among 14 nations, down from 72 matches among 16 nations previously.[3] The tournament formed part of the "ICC World Twenty20 Qualifier series, with the top six teams going forward to the qualifying round of the "2016 ICC World Twenty20 tournament.[4]

Matches where both teams have T20I status were recorded as a "Twenty20 International match. The teams in this tournament with this status are "Scotland, "Ireland, "Netherlands, "Afghanistan, "United Arab Emirates, "Hong Kong, "Nepal and "Papua New Guinea. Matches which feature one or two teams without T20I status were recorded as a "Twenty20 match.

Scotland were the first team to qualify for the 2016 ICC World Twenty20 tournament by finishing top of Group B.[5] Co-hosts Ireland joined them by finishing top of Group A.[6] Joining the two group winners through the qualifier matches were the Netherlands,[7] Afghanistan[8] Hong Kong,[9] and "Oman.[10] It was the first time that Oman qualified for a major ICC event and with their win over Namibia, they gained T20I status.[10] The UAE and Nepal who made their debut in the "2014 ICC World Twenty20 did not qualify, however the UAE did play in the "2016 Asia Cup which for the first time was played in a Twenty20 format.

Scotland and the Netherlands shared the trophy after the final was abandoned without a ball being bowled due to rain.[1][11] The Netherlands were the only associate nation to advance past the group stage in the "2014 ICC World Twenty20 tournament.
