The top ranked team in ACC Trophy besides UAE and Oman will qualify from Asia for the Division Two League.
The six World Cup qualifying teams will play the Division One League which will also be considered One-Day International. The League and the ranking will also play a vital role in the World Cup qualification for the 2011.
Besides the six top non-Test playing nations, the semifinalists of Division Two League in 2007 and finalists of the Division Three in 2009 will qualify to play the World Cup qualifying tournament in 2009.
How Can Nepal Qualify for World Cup Qualifier?
For Nepal to qualify for the World Cup qualifier in 2009, there is two roads.
The First Road: Nepal has to finish top besides UAE and Oman in 2006 ACC Trophy. It means either Nepal has to win the trophy or to lose in the final to either of these two countries or to finish third with these two reaching the final.
That will ensure NepalÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s qualification to Division Three. In Division Three League in 2007, Nepal has finish top three Ã¢â‚¬â€œ top two will qualify for the Division Two and third to Division Three in 2009.
If Nepal qualifies for Division Two and finishes among top four, it will directly qualify for the World Cup qualifier in 2009.
The Second Road: If Nepal didnÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t finish top in the ACC Trophy 2006 (besides UAE and Oman), they have to do so in 2008 to qualify for Division Three League 2009 and has to reach the final of the League to qualify for the World Cup qualifying event.
