    Man it's going to be a struggle to avoid finishing dead last in this. It's either us or the weaker team from the Americas.

    All I care about is beating HK though.

    I hope Kenya actually show up. With the shenanigans going on at board level one can never be sure.

    They scored a single, declared and still won by an innings

    2003 seems like an absolute eternity ago. Makes me sad seeing how things have gone so horribly wrong

    they'll be visiting HK this October and rumours are we'll be live ********* the games. Should be interesting. They'll be playing HK, Uganda, Jersey, Italy and Bermuda.

    So the new WC qualification route is underway in the form of the World Cup League 2

    There's basically 3 tiers

    Super League (ODI)
    League 2 (ODI)
    Challenge (List A)

    Countries will play within their leagues to determine who makes it to the Play-Offs and then the WC Qualifiers, eventually leading to the WC.

    Of course most of this is fruitless because only 10 nations make it to the WC, but hey, at least there's a clear pathway which is not as easily manipulated as the previous one.

    The biggest thing to come from this is the 36 ODIs each that teams in League 2 will be playing at a minimum.

    The seven Associate countries ranked 14-20 will each contest a total of nine tri-series over the next two and a half years. The redesigned CWC League Two guarantees each team hosts everyone for two ODIs and tours every other country for two ODIs for a total of 24 matches. The other 12 ODIs in the structure are played as neutral-site matches.

    Bit confused. Firstly aren't there only 11 full nations now Zimbabwe are gone?


    Secondly why is it the full nations plus Netherlands not Scotland? Aren't Scotland way more legit?

    Lastly who are 'Jersey' in group B of the challenge league? New Jersey?

    Lol Jersey are a country. Look it up.

    Scotland didn't finish high enough on the WCL 2 when it happened. Finished behind Netherlands. That put them behind, even though since then they've arguably been the better side, if not one of the best in the Associate world. That's the problem with the convoluted qualification systems and pathways.

    Good point regarding Zimbabwe. I don't think it's been made clear yet who will take their sport in the Super League

    1 out of 3 then hah


    And hmm. Maybe Scotland will leap frog the Dutch and auto replace Zimbabwe? Or at least take 13th spot if it goes to the dutch


    They beat the current world champions at full strength didn't they?

    Yea I think if any team deserves to be in the top 13 ODI nations ATM it's Scotland

    But then who takes Scotland's place in League 2? I'd pray for HK, but HK have their first round of Challenge League B locked and loaded for this November
