Qatar, Islamic Republic of Iran, Bahrain, Saudi Arabia, Malaysia, Australia, Korea Republic, Japan and Indonesia joined hosts Uzbekistan and Tajikistan, who emerged Group C winners in October with a perfect record of three wins, following the conclusion of nine qualifying groups on Sunday.
The complete cast will, however, be finalised at the end of November when Group A concludes on November 30.
The four best runners-up will join Uzbekistan and the 11 group winners in the 2020 Finals. Should Uzbekistan emerge as one of the best second-placed finishers, the fifth best runners-up will advance.
Group A - featuring Iraq, Oman, Palestine, Kuwait and Pakistan - will be played on November 22-30 in Muscat, Oman.
