    Really steep pyramids there. Europe particular culprits with eleven teams seeded and only one spot from the lower divisions.

    Yes that is true. 1 out of 12 is quite steep to move ahead. Rest are decent only, 1 out of 6 mostly. Africa probably wants to shield Uganda and Namibia who are /have been HPP members.

    I have been following the qualification. Some really interesting games and playing prediction game of Sportguru. Really enjoying it

    let's see how this works out in 2012 then...

    ODI Status Nations-6 (Afg, Can, Ire, Ken, Neth & Scot)
    Asia:- 3 (UAE, Hong Kong, Nepal/Oman/Kuwait)
    Europe:- 2 (Denmark, Italy)
    Africa:- 2 (Namibia, Uganda)
    Americas:- 2 (Bermuda, USA)
    EAP:- 1 (Papua New Guinea)

    Tanzania and the two Asian sides probably the strongest to miss out.

    Cuba and St Helena are the 2 members I could locate, who are not part of the tournament. 1 more ICC member is not part of tournament and most likely would not have even sent out a team to play for any ICC sanctioned tournament.

    For me the final 16 should be

    ODI Status Nations-6 (Afg, Can, Ire, Ken, Neth & Scot)
    Asia:- 3 (UAE, Hong Kong, Nepal)
    Europe:- 2 (Denmark, Italy)
    Africa:- 2 (Namibia, Uganda)
    Americas:- 2 (Bermuda, USA)
    EAP:- 1 (Papua New Guinea)

    You are right, Tanzania, Oman, Kuwait, Malaysia would be good teams missing out. Lets see. You can have many surprises. In EAP tournament, Philippines who played for first time reached the final. South Korea also managed to have some wins and defeated much talked about Indonesia to make them finish last

    Its impossible to find out who actually represents our country. There is a link to a wikipedia article but it seems obsolete. Not to mention there are only 3 czech names in it...could it be that our "national team" consisted of almost exclusively of foreigners? Aka to represent a certain country you dont need its passport?

    Hmm, gonna dig deeper into this. Thanks for the news jashan83 .)

    Hi Jan, no you don't need to be in passport holders. As per ICC norms, for representing a nation you need to be resident of that country for 7 years (Staying more than 180 days/year in that country). However you can field 3 players in playing 11 with a relaxed norm of 4 years. It is for this reason that many players in Middle East teams are above 30, because they play cricket in South Asia, fail and then shift to middle east. Get into the team after 4 years. Keep playing till the time you have 7 years in that nation and now you have more people coming in team with 4 years and the chain continues

    If you are a Passport Holder residing in other country then you can straight away represent your country. Many Aussie's are passport holders of various European countries and represent them.

    I'm finding it hard to get into the lower level regional tournaments. Hopefully once we get to the Div 1 regionals, things will heat up a bit.

    The final qualifier should be a very interesting tournament, with so many teams and the chance of some underdogs getting through...

    How the hell are those final standings calculated?
    marc71178 - President and founding member of AAAS - we don't only appreciate when he does well, but also when he's not quite so good!

    Since Mali came last in the group of 4, it was st away given 7th Rank.

    .
    Thanks again jashan, now for the explanation
    I just cant imagine how it is efficiently checked that a player stayed at least 180 days each year in our country for the last 7 years...gonna check ICC webpage.
    Interesting topic.)

    Totally! If only they'd played a bit better in the 2005 ICC trophy. You just get the feeling teams like Canada are so far ahead now purely because they get more matches against the other 5.


    Would love to see 20 teams one day but i think even 16 is probably a stretch.

    Sweden v Norway fight for playoffs Lycka till Sverige!
