The West Indies cricket team will participate in the upcoming ICC Men’s Cricket World Cup Qualifiers after missing out on a direct ticket to the mega event. South Africa’s victory over the Netherlands in the World Cup Super League on Sunday pushed the two times world champions to the Qualifiers.
Meanwhile, South Africa are almost confirmed for the direct flight to India. Only Ireland’s 3-0 series win over Bangladesh could stop them.
The ICC Cricket World Cup Qualifier is scheduled to take place in Zimbabwe in June and July of this year. The tournament will feature ten teams, including the West Indies, competing for the remaining two spots in the World Cup. The top two teams from the Qualifiers will join the eight teams who have already qualified for the World Cup through the Super League.
Sri Lanka are also fixed to feature in the Qualifiers after their defeat against New Zealand on Friday. Netherlands and Zimbabwe are the other two teams confirmed to participate in the Qualifier. One team is yet to be fixed.
Scotland, Oman and Nepal have already booked their place in the Quaifer being in the top three of ICC CWC League 2. Similarly, two teams from the ongoing World Cup Qualifier Play-off will also feature in the gateway to the mega event.
