ICC Chairman N Srinivasan leaves the associate cricket nations fuming as he said that they had no reason to feel left out as the format gives them a good chance at qualifying for the mega-event. The ICC’s decision to reduce the number of teams from 14 to 10 in the next World in England has been lambasted by the associate nations on the course of the 2015 World Cup.

If you look at the next World Cup, the top eight will qualify while for the ninth and 10th team, there will be competition between six associates. So, the Associates will have a reasonably good chance at playing the World Cup. The success of the Associates is actually because of the ICC’s development program, Srinivasan told when he was interviewed by Harsha Bhogle for Star Sports.

As per the new qualifying system, hosts England are assured a place for being the hosts and the top seven teams will be assured of a place in the World Cup. The Associates will have to fight it out against the sides outside the top-eight of ICC rankings in the qualifiers. There are possibilities that not even a single associate nation would make the showpiece event.
