ICC congratulates Afghanistan, West Indies for qualifying to World Cup-2019
 KABUL: The International Cricket Council (ICC) Chief Executive David Richardson has congratulated Afghanistan and the West Indies for making it through to the ICC Cricket World Cup 2019, a statement from the world cricket body said on Monday.
He also thanked Zimbabwe Cricket, their volunteers and the ICC staff for putting together a successful ICC Cricket World Cup Qualifier 2018, which concluded in Harare on Sunday, according to ICC statement.
Afghanistan and the West Indies qualified for the ICC Cricket World Cup 2019, to be played from 30 May to 14 July in England and Wales, after finishing as the top two sides after 33 matches in the 10-team qualifying tournament.
In the 34th and final match of the tournament on Sunday, Afghanistan beat the West Indies by seven wickets with a competent display in the field and with the bat to lift the prestigious silverware.
“On behalf of the ICC, I want to congratulate Afghanistan for their efforts in recovering from a slow start to take this prestigious title and, both them and the West Indies for qualifying for the ICC Cricket Word Cup 2019.
 We look forward to welcoming them along with the eight top-ranked ODI teams in England and Wales for what I’m sure will be highly competitive event,” said Mr Richardson, who attended Sunday’s final in Harare.
“The ICC Cricket World Cup Qualifier has seen some highly competitive and enthralling cricket with all sides producing some fine performances in their quest to qualify for the World Cup.
