The 2005 ICC Trophy was a cricket tournament held in Ireland between 1 July and 13 July. It was an international one-day tournament played over 50 overs per side between 12 associate members of the International Cricket Council. It came with the prize of a place in the 2007 Cricket World Cup (and together with it a share of US$2.5 million for future development) for the five top-ranked teams, and with the prize of official One Day International status from 1 January 2006 (until the 2009 ICC Trophy) for the five top-ranked teams along with Kenya, who had already been given official one-day status until the 2009 Trophy.

On 7 July, the top 4 teams Scotland, Canada and for the first time Ireland and Bermuda qualified for the 2007 Cricket World Cup and, from 1 January 2006, official One Day International status. On 11 July the Netherlands also achieved this by beating the United Arab Emirates to finish fifth. Scotland won the tournament, beating Ireland by 47 runs in the final.

Dutch batsman Bas Zuiderent was named as Player of the Tournament.

Competition format[edit]

The 12 teams were divided into two groups of six teams. Each team played with each other in its group once. Five matches per team were played between 1 July and 7 July. The resulting group tables were then each divided into three bands of two teams each.

Combining the two groups, the four teams in each band then played a mini knock-out tournament consisting of two semi-finals, a championship, and a consolation match, so that the first- and second-ranked teams from each of the original groups were playing for first through fourth place in the tournament overall; the third- and fourth-ranked teams for fifth through eighth; and the fifth- and sixth-ranked teams for ninth through twelfth. Thus at the end of the tournament all teams are given a definitive rank between 1 and 12. The final play-offs were played on 11 July with the final on 13 July.

Apart from the academic interest in this final classification, one match in particular had great significance: the winner of the second band's mini tournament would, by taking fifth place overall, become the fifth and final team to win temporary ODI status and an invitation to the 2007 Cricket World Cup.

Teams[edit]

There were 12 teams that played in the tournament. The teams that played were:

Match abandoned without a ball bowled.
Waringstown Cricket Club, The Lawn, Waringstown
Umpires: Asad Rauf (PAK) & Shahul Hameed (Indonesia)
  • No toss
  • Match abandoned due to rain.

All of the Group A games were washed out or abandoned because of weather conditions. Under the playing conditions, the rest day was only to be used as a reserve day if all matches in both groups were washed out. Therefore the games between Ireland and the United States, Denmark and the United Arab Emirates (after the UAE had reached 57 for 3 after 15 overs), and Uganda and Bermuda were all "no results". The wash-out eliminates the United States from World Cup and ODI status contention.

The Americans started by keeping up with the run rate, but wickets fell and they finished all out for 198.

The closest game of the first round was between Canada and Namibia. John Davison, who at the time held the record for the fastest century in the Cricket World Cup made 125, supported by Ian Billcliff's 90 as the North Americans put on 284. In reply, Namibia came close, making 282 to lose by 2 runs in Group B's first heavyweight clash, thanks to Canada's captain, Kevin Sandher's five wickets. Namibia put in a protest, however, claiming that the scoring in the 45th over was wrong. The technical committee turned down Namibia's protest, which prompted Namibia to put in an appeal. Namibia's appeal against the technical committee's ruling was turned down, meaning that Canada retain the 2 points they won on 1 July.

  • Ireland won the toss and elected to field.

Ireland defeated Canada in the first semi-final. Winning the toss and bowling, the Irish - weakened by Ed Joyce's return to Middlesex - struggled initially, John Davison hitting eight fours and a run single in his 15-ball 33. However, five Canadian batsmen were out with scores in the thirties, as Canada eventually crept to 238 for 9 - Andre Botha taking four for 47. Ireland's reply started cautiously, yet Sanjayan Thuraisingam and Kevin Sandher shared wickets, and after fifteen overs Ireland were only 60 for 3. With ten overs to go, and Trent Johnston having been caught by Sunil Dhaniram, Ireland needed 68 runs to win. However, Peter Gillespie and Northamptonshire player Andrew White hit out well, Gillespie scoring a career-best score in the ICC Trophy with 64 - and Ireland squeezed home with four balls and four wickets to spare.

  • Bermuda won the toss and elected to bat.

Scotland didn't have as tough a time of it against Bermuda, but still had to ponder innumerable wides. In all, Scotland conceded 49 extras in 50 overs, of which 30 were wides - only Bermudian wicket-keeper Dean Minors out-scoring the extras. Bermuda reached a total of 219 for 9, having been 88 for 7, and a fiery opening burst from 42-year-old Dennis Archer had the Scots worried. However, Cedric English and Gavin Hamilton steadied the ship, and the Scots eventually won by six wickets, making 222 for 4 in 46.5 overs.

  • Netherlands won the toss and elected to bat.

Denmark were batted out of the game by Bas Zuiderent and Daan van Bunge who both made centuries as the Danish spin bowling was taken to all corners. Van Bunge made 137 and Zuiderent 107 as the Dutch amassed 314 for 6, also helped by Ryan ten Doeschate who made 32. Despite Thomas Hansen bowling a maiden and taking three for 41, it was not enough. In reply, the Danes were in with a shout as long as Frederik Klokker was at the crease, but when he was gone for 52, it was quickly over. The Danes crawled to 225 all out, not a bad score by their standards, but still defeated by 89 runs.

The United Arab Emirates, meanwhile, pulled off a somewhat surprising victory over Namibia, who had qualified for the 2003 Cricket World Cup. Despite all-rounder Gerrie Snyman scoring 83 not out in Namibia's total of 240 for 7, and his early efforts to have UAE on 18 for 2, UAE responded with an experienced all-rounder of their own, Khurram Khan. The captain made 92 as UAE won by six wickets with three overs to spare.

Oman reached the ninth place play-off with a surprise win over Uganda. Oman were initially reduced to 97 for 7, but recovered, Mohammad Aslam scoring 39 as they finished all out for 181. In reply, Kenneth Kamyuka and Lawrence Sematimba paired up for 106 after a shaky start to 37 for 5, but when Sematimba departed for 48 the wheels fell off the Ugandan chase, and they ended all out on 175, losing by six runs.

  • United Arab Emirates won the toss and elected to field.

The Dutch cricket team won this most important of the placement matches on 11 July, as the winner would qualify for the 2007 Cricket World Cup and also for ODI status and several grants from the ICC. Batting first, the Dutch were led to another big score after Bas Zuiderent made another century - this time unbeaten, for 116. Ryan ten Doeschate added 65 not out, while Tim de Leede also made 65, and the Dutch scored 287 for 4. In reply, the UAE always knew they were up against a massive total, and lost wickets exceedingly quickly - their highest partnership was 41, as they made 142 all out, losing by 143 runs.

Roopnarine continued on his semi-final form, making 98, while six sixes from Tony Reid sent his score to 61 not out off 29 balls. The USA looked on course to winning when Oman had been reduced to 211 for 7 - however, Farhan Khan wanted otherwise, smashing nine sixes on his way to 94 not out, and Oman took a three-wicket win.

  • Papua New Guinea won the toss and elected to bat.

Papua New Guinea, who had qualified for this tournament through the extra chance in the World Cup Qualifying Series, got their first win in an extremely close-run match with Uganda. After young pace bowler Emmanuel Isaneez had taken four for 48 to reduce Papua New Guinea to 203 all out, Papuan Hitolo Areni responded with four quick wickets, as Uganda crumbled to 16 for 4 - and then 153 for 9. Kenneth Kamyuka then showed the Papuans how to stay on strike, as his batting partner Isaneez faced three deliveries in their partnership of 49. However, Kamyuka just could not hit the runs quickly enough, and Uganda ended on 202 for 9 - thus claiming the wooden spoon.

Final - 13 July[edit]

This match was played two days after the other five placement matches. Scotland batted Ireland out of the match, their returning county professionals taking full advantage. Ryan Watson top-scored for the Scots with 94, but Dougie Brown (59 off 44 balls) and Fraser Watts (55) also made big contributions, as the Irish bowling conceded their highest total in this tournament - 324 for 8. Paul Hoffmann ripped out two Irish wickets quickly, but Ed Joyce and wicketkeeper Jeremy Bray rebuilt to 148 for 2. However, a flurry of wickets - Craig Wright taking three for 48 as the most - sent the Irish staring down the barrel, first at 188 for 6, and then at 222 for 9. Not even 34 not out from the number 11, Gordon Cooke could help Ireland, as they lost by 47 runs.
