ICC restores 14-team format for 2015 World Cup

ICC restores 14-team format for 2015 World Cup

Four associate teams will play the next World Cup alongside 10 full members, reports ESPNcricinfo.

The decision to reinstate the associates in the mega-event was taken on the third day of the ICC's annual conference in Hong Kong.

On Monday, the ICC's chief executives' committee (CEC) recommended to the executive board that there should be a qualifying tournament for associates for the 2015 World Cup in Australia and New Zealand.

ESPNcricinfo reported that the executive board acted on the CEC's recommendation and ensured participation of associate teams by expanding the tournament from 10 to 14 teams.
