The final three rounds of the ICC Intercontinental Cup (ICC ICup) 2015-2017 are to be played in a home or away format throughout 2017 with competing teams Afghanistan, Hong Kong, Ireland, Namibia, Netherlands, PNG, Scotland and UAE all competing for position, before the culmination of the tournament at the end of the year. The winning side of the ICC’s premier first-class tournament will get an opportunity to play the 10th-ranked Test side in the ICC Test Challenge in 2018 and then try to acquire Test status until the next event in 2022, provided it wins the challenge.
