    The qualification tournament was the World Cricket League in Kenya in January. Kenya and Scotland took the first two places and qualified.

    Yes, it was a 50-over tournament to decide who qualified for a 20-over tournament. Economics trumping sporting considerations, I suppose.

    As recently as the 3rd Sept/ August( I'm not quite sure) the episode of ICC cricket world which aired on ESPN listed this as their trivia question

    "Who did Scotland Beat in the ICC World Cricket League final to qualify for the inaugral Twenty20 World Cup?"

    the answer given was Ireland

    Given that this

    is what actually hapenned isn't it embarrasing how little and ICC sanctioned programme knows about the tournament
