The fixtures for World Cricket League Division 2, set to take place in Namibia in April, have been confirmed.
The tournament will begin on Saturday 20 April, when Canada take on Hong Kong, Oman face off against USA, and hosts Namibia clash with Papua New Guinea. It will conclude the following Saturday with the final and playoffs for third and fifth position.
The competition will have important ramifications for qualification for the ICC Men’s Cricket World Cup 2023. The top four teams from WCL2 will join Scotland, Nepal, and the United Arab Emirates in the ICC Cricket World Cup League 2 2019-21, and play 36 ODIs each over a two-and-a-half year period in 21 tri-series. The top three in this table will qualify for the Cricket World Cup Qualifier, from which the top two sides will qualify for the Cricket World Cup 2023.
For the bottom two sides, this won’t be the end of their CWC dream. They will enter the Cricket World Cup Qualifier Challenge League A and B, from which the winner of each will progress to the Cricket World Cup Qualifier play-off. The top two sides in the CWCQ play-off, which will also contain the bottom four sides from CWC League 2, will enter CWCQ 2022.
