ICC/CricNepal-The International Cricket Council (ICC) today announced that Namibia will host Pepsi ICC World Cricket League (WCL) Division 2 from 17 to 24 January 2015.
Six teams will compete in the event, with the top teams earning promotion to both the Pepsi ICC WCL Championship and the four-day, first-class ICC Intercontinental Cup, both of which will commence in 2015.
Namibia will be joined by Canada, Kenya, and Netherlands, as well as the top two teams from WCL Div. 3, which will be played in Uganda from 26 October to 2 November. Nepal will compete in Div-3 with Uganda, Bermuda, USA, Malaysia and Singapore.
If Nepal qualify for Div-2 it won’t be the first time Nepal play in Namibia. Nepal had toured Namibia in 2006 where Nepal took on the host in a 3 day match.
This is the second ICC WCL divisional event to be played in Namibia, after it hosted the same Division in 2007.
