IRISH GIVEN WORLD CUP BOOST

Ireland are close to securing their place in the 2015 world cup. The ICC Chief Executives' Committee has recommended that there should be a qualification process for the event in Australia and New Zealand.

A final decision will be taken by the ICC Executive Board in Hong Kong in the next two days.

There was an outcry in April when the ICC decided to restrict the 2015 competition to the 10 full members.
