The search for the final two teams in the 2019 World Cup will begin in Zimbabwe in March 2018, after the African country was announced the host of the qualifying tournament.
West Indies is one of the teams that will be taking part in the competition, having failed to gain direct entry into the prestigious event.
They will be joined by the bottom-three ranked One-Day International (ODI) teams — Zimbabwe, Afghanistan and Ireland — the top four sides from the ICC World Cricket League Champions and the top two from the ICC World Cricket League Division 2.
Originally, Bangladesh was scheduled to host the qualifiers, but with their gaining direct entry, finishing in the top eight of the ICC ODI rankings on deadline day, Sept. 30, Zimbabwe came into contention.
