Oman and UAE have finished as first and second in World Cricket League Division 2 played in Namibia at the end of November. This means that they are promoted to the ICC World Cup Qualifier (formerly the ICC Trophy) to be played in the UAE in 2009. Should Oman and UAE finish in the top six there, they will qualify for the 2011 World Cup.
Afghanistan, Hong Kong, Nepal and Singapore are also in the World Cricket League qualifying stages and will resume competition next year.
