World Cup qualifier 2019 shifted from Bangladesh
The qualifying tournament for the 2019 50-over World Cup is likely to be shifted from Bangladesh to Ireland and Scotland, reported UK-based newspaper Independent on Wednesday. The English newspaper claimed that the two countries’ joint bid is expected to be ratified in next month’s ICC board meeting. Hosting right had previously been awarded to Bangladesh which the country no longer wish to host given the Tigers are almost certain to qualify automatically for the World Cup. Bangladesh are currently number seven in the ICC ranking and the first eight teams are to qualify for the world event automatically. The shift of the World Cup to Ireland and Scotland will boost the prospect of the two countries reaching the main tournament. According to the Independent, Zimbabwe would also like to host the qualifier but it is unclear whether they have the infrastructure - either the cricket facilities or hotels - to host the 10-nation event. The ICC was impressed when Ireland and Scotland jointly hosted the qualifiers for the last World T20, in 2015. The qualifying tournament, previously scheduled for April next year, is now likely to be played from early July to early August to minimise the chances of disruption by the weather. It is understood that the ICC has already mapped out a provisional schedule of matches, although the make-up of the teams will not be clear until early 2018.
