19 Sep / 2017(483)…World Cup 2019-West Indies failed to qualify

As margin of defeat increased over period of time, West Indies failed to qualify for 2019 World Cup.

Their defeat in the first ODI against England at Old Trafford stripped them of inevitable qualification for 2019 World Cup. Now they will have to compete in a 10-team qualifier in 2018. They will be joined by three teams from bottom of ICC ranking (Afghanistan, Zimbabwe and Ireland) and top six associate teams from World Cricket League. Top 2 teams will complete the World Cup line up which will be held in England, 2019.

Currently they are touring England. They lost Wisden Trophy Test series 1-2, won one-off T20I, and now on their last leg of the tour- 5 match ODI series. This is the second time this year they are playing a bilateral series against England.

Rather shockingly they are the only team who are yet to score a century  in a one day match this year. Emerging teams like Ireland, Afghanistan and Zimbabwe have two centuries, and Scotland produced one this year!. So far their highest score this year is 91* by Jason Mohammaed against Pakistan batting at No.5. Last year they played 14 one day matches which featured 4 centurions.
