News: Malaysia gets automatic qualification for u19 WC…

Here is the full deal. Asia will have 2 spots, Europe and Americas will have 1 each, while there will probably 2 spots going to a combined Africa/EAP tournament.

I would have thought that ICC would also think about giving Nepal an Automatic spot, perhaps even Ireland. Nepal finished in the top 10 this time, beating a number of test teams. The tournament could easily have been increased to 20 teams without too much expenditure, and without too much of a change to the 4 pool system. We have discussed possibilities for this before on this blog.

The other thing in the newspiece is about Nepal NOT getting the ACC academy, but instead getting $100, 000 for the development of infrastructure of some sort. I think given the close proximity of all these academies, if an ACC Academy has to be made, it would make sense for it to be made in Malaysia, just to get a decent geographical spread around.

Finally, the ACC has come to it’s sense, and it introducing a ranking system for the teams in the region (associates only?). This will help everyone, but I would like to see these rankings updated on their website after any match takes place which affects them. Are these going to be seperate rankings for the age levels and senior teams, or one combined ranking? The combined ranking would be confusing.

    my bad on the eap/africa qualification front….. looks like there is 1 spot each for Africa and EAP….. Our friend Vanuatu will be hosting the EAP qualifier, which will probably be taken by PNG………

    I’d guess that Malaysia have been given automatic qualification because they’re hosting it. Same will happen with Canada in 2010.

    Well, I read the decision on giving Malaysia an automatic qualification and it says that’s because they are hosting the event and also because they have lost three times to Nepal in the final of the qualifying event.

    Nepal ranking is top in the associate country in age level so they have to automatically qualify Nepal too.
