    West Indies brace for challenge of qualifying direct for ICC Cricket World Cup 2019

    The 1975 and 1979 champion side has to beat Ireland in a one-off ODI and then defeat England 5-0 or 4-1 with wins in the last four matches to qualify ahead of Sri Lanka

    The Windies side has an arduous task of trying to qualify direct for the ICC Cricket World Cup 2019 as it braces for an upcoming one-off ODI against Ireland in Belfast on 13 September and a five-match ODI series against England from 19 to 29 September.

    The Windies side is currently on 78 points in the MRF Tyres ICC ODI Team Rankings , eight points behind eighth-placed Sri Lanka, whom it will need to overtake in order to qualify. The top seven ODI sides apart from host England as on 30 September qualify direct for ICC’s pinnacle 50-over event, which will take place from 30 May to 15 July 2019 in the United Kingdom.

    The 1975 and 1979 champion side will have to beat Ireland and then also defeat England either 5-0 or by a 4-1 margin in which it wins the last four matches. In other words, losing any match other than the opening match against England at Old Trafford on 19 September will allow Sri Lanka a direct passage.

    Teams not getting direct places in the ICC Cricket World Cup 2019 will get another shot through a Qualifying tournament.

    The ICC Cricket World Cup Qualifier 2018 will feature the bottom four sides from the MRF Tyres ICC ODI Team Rankings , the top four sides from the ICC World Cricket League Championship and the top two sides from ICC World Cricket League Division 2. The top two sides from the World Cup Qualifier will complete the 10-team line-up for the ICC Cricket World Cup 2019.

    As for fourth-placed England, it will be able to gain a maximum of one point and reach 114 points, even if it wins the series 5-0. On the other hand, a 5-0 series loss will see it go down to fifth position and 106 points.

    In the individual rankings, Joe Root is the leading England batsman in fourth position while Chris Woakes is the leading bowler at 11 place.
    For the Windies, Marlon Samuels (43rd) and captain Jason Holder (20 ) are the leading batsman and bowler, respectively.

    Meanwhile, India hosts Australia for five ODIs from 17 September to 1 October, a series that gives both sides a chance to go atop the rankings table currently led by South Africa with 119 points.

    India and Australia are both on 117 points with Australia ahead on decimal points. A win for either side by a margin of 4-1 or better will see it move to number one position.

    India v Australia series scenarios:

    India beats Australia 5-0 – India 122, Australia 113
    India beats Australia 4-1 – India 120, Australia 114
    India beats Australia 3-2 – India 118, Australia 116
    Australia beats India 3-2 – Australia 118, India 116
    Australia beats India 4-1 – Australia 120, India 114
    Australia beats India 5-0 – Australia 122, India 112


    India captain Virat Kohli is the number-one ranked batsman in the format with Rohit Sharma (ninth) and Mahendra Singh Dhoni (10 ) also in the top-10. Left-arm spinner Akshar Patel is ranked 10 among bowlers.

    For Australia, opener David Warner is ranked second among batsmen while Hazlewood and Mitchell Starc are ranked first and third among bowlers.

    There is a huge gap between us and 5th place NZ

    We would have to beat them 5-0 or maybe 4-1 to get even close to them.

    Rain causes abandonment of West Indies ODI with Ireland. So with that, West Indies miss out on direct qualification and Sri Lanka takes the last direct qualification spot.

    Windies' task becomes more difficult after washout

    The Windies’ challenge of qualifying direct for the ICC Cricket World Cup 2019 has become more difficult after its match against Ireland in Belfast was abandoned due to rain on Wednesday.

    The 1975 and 1979 champion side will now have to either win all its matches of an upcoming five-match series against England from 19 to 29 September or win 4-0 with either a tie or a no-result in the remaining match in order to qualify ahead of eighth-placed Sri Lanka, which is eight points ahead with 86 points on the points table.

    The Windies needed to win against Ireland and then also defeat England in the last four matches of their series but that equation has changed and now it can’t also afford to lose the opening match in Old Trafford on 19 September.

    The top seven ODI sides apart from host England as on 30 September qualify direct for ICC’s pinnacle 50-over event, which will take place from 30 May to 15 July in the United Kingdom.

    The bottom four sides on the MRF Tyres ICC ODI Team Rankings will need to play a Qualifying event also featuring the top four sides from the ICC World Cricket League Championship and the top two sides from the ICC World Cricket League Division 2. The top two teams from this Qualifying event will then advance to play in the ICC Cricket World Cup 2019.

    Possibly as they are struggling right now.

    Williamson is the only consistently good player they have right now - Ross Taylor is tuk tuk, Guptil is hit or miss and everyone else is horribly out of form.
