The 2001 ICC Trophy was a cricket tournament played in Ontario, Canada in 2001. It was the qualifying tournament for the 2003 Cricket World Cup. Three spots in the World Cup were on offer and the Netherlands, Canada and for the first time, Namibia all qualified. Scotland failed to qualify losing in the 3rd place play off and finishing fourth.

Bangladesh had by now been promoted to full Test and ODI status, and so did not take part in this competition and Kenya who gained full ODI status also didn't take part and as a result both countries qualified for the 2003 Cricket World Cup automatically.


Squads[edit]

Group stage[edit]

The first round group stage saw a unique two division format, designed to eliminate the mismatches that had blighted previous ICC Trophy tournaments. Each division had two groups of six teams, making 24 teams in total. However, Italy withdrew before the tournament started in protest after Joe Scuderi was ruled ineligible despite being an Italian citizen. West Africa also withdrew, for unknown reasons, leaving one of the Division Two groups with just four teams.

The top three teams from the first round Division One groups went through to the Super League stage, whilst the fourth place team in each group played off against the winners of the Division Two groups.
