The 2019 Malaysia Cricket World Cup Challenge League A was the inaugural edition of Group A of the 2019–21 ICC Cricket World Cup Challenge League, a cricket tournament which formed part of the qualification pathway to the 2023 Cricket World Cup.[1][2] In July 2019, the International Cricket Council (ICC) confirmed that the Malaysia Cricket Association would host the tournament.[3] The series took place between 16 and 26 September 2019,[4] with all the matches having List A status.[5][6]

On the penultimate day of the tournament, Vanuatu were bowled out for 65 runs against Malaysia.[7] In reply, Vanuatu managed to dismiss Malaysia for 52 runs, recording the lowest team total defended by any side in a List A cricket match.[8]

Canada won the series, after finishing ahead of Singapore on net run rate, with both teams level on points.[9]
