Namibia qualifies for 2024 ICC U19 Men's Cricket World Cup

WINDHOEK, July 31 (Xinhua) -- Namibia has qualified for the International Cricket Council (ICC) U19 Men's Cricket World Cup scheduled for next year in Sri Lanka after winning the Africa Qualifier which took place from July 21 to 31 in Tanzania.

According to the ICC website, Namibia became the third team to punch their tickets for the U19 World Cup 2024 through the Qualifier route. Last month, New Zealand went through from the East Asia-Pacific Qualifier while Nepal advanced from Asia in February 2023.

Namibia won all their games in the Africa Qualifier.

Namibia will join 11 others -- Afghanistan, Australia, Bangladesh, England, India, Ireland, Pakistan, South Africa, Sri Lanka, West Indies, and Zimbabwe -- who automatically qualified as the best-placed full member nations or regions from the previous edition in 2022.
