No increase in number of ODI countries
The ICC has said that there are no plans to extend the number of Associate members who will gain ODI status.
On a visit to Uganda, Cassim Suliman, the CEO of the African Cricket Association, was reported as saying that he would push for more countries to be added to the six Associates that currently have one-day status. But an ICC spokesman told Cricinfo: "There is no intention at this stage to increase the number of teams playing ODIs.
