We now know who will play in the Super Eights after the conclusion of the first round in the ICC World Cup Qualifiers.
Afghanistan, UAE and Namibia are the three sides who join the existing ODI countries in the battle for four World Cup places and six ODI status slots.
Bermuda, who have underperformed consistently over the last four year, are eliminated from the competition and will head back to the relative backwater of being an ordinary Associate.

Executive editor Martin Williamson joined the Wisden website in its planning stages in 2001 after failing to make his millions in the internet boom when managing editor of Sportal. Before that he was in charge of Sky Sports Online and helped launch and run Sky News Online. With a preference for all things old (except his wife and children), he has recently confounded colleagues by displaying an uncharacteristic fondness for Twenty20 cricket. His enthusiasm for the game is sadly not matched by his ability, but he remains convinced that he might be a late developer and perseveres in the hope of an England call-up with his middle-order batting and non-spinning offbreaks. He is now managing editor of ESPN EMEA Digital Group as well as his Cricinfo responsibilities.
