The 2012–18 ICC World Cricket League was the third season of ICC World Cricket League. Following the establishment of the various leagues during ICC World Cricket League 2007–09, the competition was composed of eight divisions[1] but in 2014, ICC reduced Division 7 and Division 8. In addition, a series of qualifying regional tournaments were played. This was the first World Cricket League Season that test playing Nations of ICC played.

About[edit]

On 28 January 2015, the ICC announced[2] that the leading two associate sides, Ireland and Afghanistan, would be promoted to the ICC ODI Championship for the period until the 2019 World Cup. This promotion guaranteed both associate sides entry to the final Cricket World Cup qualifier, and an opportunity to qualify directly through the ODI championship.

As a consequence, both teams were removed from the World Cricket League one-day programme, and Kenya and Nepal, who had missed out on promotion to World Cricket League Championship days before, were promoted to the Championship.
