ODI WC Qualifiers: According to WI captain Shai Hope, impact players can help their team win at any point of the competition: West Indies, who have won the ODI World Cup twice, must follow the same qualification process in 2023 in order to attend the showcase tournament, which will be staged in India later this year. Shai Hope, the captain, thinks that having impact players on the team will always help them sail through the qualifying rounds.
The planning process is going well. We are concentrating as a team on execution consistency and the right mindset. At any point of the tournament, any one of our impact players can win us a game, Hope said to the ICC before the West Indies’ Group A opener against the USA on Sunday.
With this qualifier and the T20 World Cup that we will co-host in 2018, it will be a big 12 months for cricket in the USA. We are very optimistic about our possibilities in Zimbabwe and are looking forward to showcasing our abilities on a global scale. We can already sense something special forming within this group, and this occasion serves as the ideal launchpad for us to advance our cricket, according to Patel.
At the conclusion of the ten-team qualification tournament in Zimbabwe, two teams will advance, and skipper Craig Ervin believes it will be a fantastic tournament for his squad to play in.
The tournament has been well-prepared for, I must say. The upcoming cricket will be incredibly entertaining, and Sikandar Raza, Blessing Muzarabani, and Sean Williams will be exciting players to watch. The tournament is going to be fantastic, he predicted.
Nepal, Zimbabwe’s opponents on Sunday, is grateful for the opportunity to compete against other top-tier teams.
“We have been training implausibly hard for this event for the previous couple of years, and now we finally get this option. We value this chance and wish to take full use of it. Rohit Paudel, the captain, said, “We are all very excited to play against some good cricketing nations and are looking forward to the tournament.”
Although many of the Netherlands’ top players were unavailable owing to county cricket obligations in England, skipper Scott Edwards voiced confidence in the team’s current members to emerge as tournament champions and book their flights to India.
“I have assuredness in the team we sent to Zimbabwe. Before the competition, we successfully practiced under these conditions and were successful. These World Cup Qualifiers are always challenging, but according to Edwards, we think the kind of cricket we are playing has the potential to prevail in this competition.
