The 2009–14 ICC World Cricket League was the second season of ICC World Cricket League. Following the establishment of the various leagues during the preceding tournament, it was composed of eight divisions.[1] In addition, a series of qualifying regional tournaments were played. The divisions were played in roughly consecutive order, with the lower divisions played first. The top two from each division gained promotion to the following, higher division, meaning that some teams played in more than one division during the tournament.[2] The first tournament, in May 2009, was the 2009 ICC World Cricket League Division Seven in Guernsey.[3]
