The 2015–17 ICC World Cricket League Championship was the second edition of the ICC World Cricket League Championship. It took place from 2015 until 2017, in parallel with the 2015-17 ICC Intercontinental Cup. Both Ireland and Afghanistan had been promoted to the main ICC ODI Championship and did not compete in this tournament.[1] Instead, Kenya and Nepal were included in the tournament. The tournament was played in a round-robin format.[2] All matches were recorded as List A matches, and those in which both teams had ODI status were also recorded as ODIs.

The Netherlands won the tournament and joined the thirteen-team 2020–22 ICC Cricket World Cup Super League.[3][4] The Netherlands regained their ODI status after losing it at the 2014 Cricket World Cup Qualifier.[5] Inclusion in the ICC ODI League will mean they will play 24 fixtures against Full Members until 2022.[5]

The Netherlands, along with Scotland, Papua New Guinea and Hong Kong also joined the lowest ranked four teams from the ICC ODI Championship (as of September 2017) in the 2018 Cricket World Cup Qualifier.[6] The bottom four teams, Kenya, Nepal, the United Arab Emirates and Namibia were all relegated to Division Two[6] and will play the finalists of Division Three for the remaining two spots in the 2018 CWC Qualifier.[7]

Teams[edit]

The following eight teams took part in the tournament based on the results from 2014 Cricket World Cup Qualifier and the 2015 ICC World Cricket League Division Two:
