Guernsey will play in Division 7 of the World Cricket League next season, a reward for their runners-up place in the European Division Two tournament held in August. BBC Guernsey has the full story.
ICC Europe development manager Richard Holdsworth told BBC Guernsey that the island deserves its place.
"Because of their good performances in the European league and their regional ranking they've been promoted into World League Seven," he said.
They will face Gibraltar, Bahrain, Japan, Nigeria and Surinam in a tournament next year at a venue that has yet to be announced.

Assistant editor Will opted against a lifetime of head-bangingly dull administration in the NHS, where he had served for two years. In 2005 came a break at Cricinfo where he slotted right in as a ferociously enthusiastic tea drinker and maker, with a penchant for using "frankly" and "marvellous". He also runs The Corridor, a cricket blog where he can be found ranting and raving about all things - some even involving the sport. He is a great-great nephew of Sir Jack Newman, the former Wellingtonian bowler who took two wickets at 127 apiece for New Zealand.
