Sri Lanka Cricket team is not among the top ten in the ICC Cricket World Cup Super League while England have climbed to the top following their victory over India.

The ICC Cricket World Cup Super League will help decide which teams feature in the ICC Men’s Cricket World Cup 2023 in India. India, who are the hosts in 2023, and the other top seven teams will qualify automatically for the World Cup.

The bottom five teams will play a qualifying tournament, which will also feature the best teams from the lower rungs of competition.

Thirteen teams are taking part in this competition. These are the 12 Full Member nations, along with the Netherlands. Each team will play a total of 24 ODIs in one cycle of the competition.

Each team gets 10 points for a win, five for a tie/no result/abandonment and none for a loss. Teams will be ranked according to total points earned across the eight series.

    Aiyo sali! How did we ever come this. So basically ZIM made it.

    Probably, Sri Lankan Legends team is better than the National team. This is mainly due to the selector who gave priority to players who belong to his religion, so many good players had been omitted from national team. This person needs to be formerly charged for his criminal offence.

    Lack of discipline will result in more damage.

    SLC will come up with a brilliant answer as they do in front of COPE. Don't be surprised if they say that this is a strategy to get weaker teams into the top ten and beat them.

    politicians (thank to submissive public) have been so successful in preventing every aspect of economic and social aspects from climbing to international level. And now they have been successful in bringing down the only internationally recognized aspect in Sri Lanka

    SLC is born again and are looking for great salvation by not qualifying to play the world Cup. Send these SLC officials to find their own salvation and appoint the masters now at least we can play 2027 Cup.

    25 yrs after been crowned the Champions of the World SL succumb to non existent in the top 10.Can it get any worse? The only way SL cricket can revive from this point is by drilling into the mindset of its management and players that YOU PLAY CRICKET FOR YOUR COUNTRY, not to make big bucks, buy BMWs and flats in London.

    lol Zimbabwe and Ireland above us .Afghanistan at #4 who knew this day would come

    I am not defending SLC. The board is corrupt and the first class structure is pathetic. However, I don't think that the problem is selection. Talented people have been given chances. They have just failed. Also, this table is dubious. So India is #8! SA is not even in the top 10. Afghan, Ban, Zim and even Ire are in the top 10. There is something wrong with these rankings.

    Really? Why don't you put forward your argument to the ICC?

    Hambanthota kolla Sunday, 28 March 2021 02:44 AM

    Blame the dumb politicians we have in SL. Whatever they touch turns to shit.

    This is the creation of Sumithipala and his stooges including Mohan Silva.

    Jude Sunday, 28 March 2021 06:25 AM

    mnsmart Sunday, 28 March 2021 07:05 AM

    Extremely sad day for Sri Lankans. We are loosing everything one by one.

    Where is the omnipotent god of the "born again" cult? Maybe he, too, is helpless...

    Baba Sunday, 28 March 2021 11:02 AM

    No problem, Namal baby will do something to get it done soon.

    Senaka Sunday, 28 March 2021 11:38 AM

    roobarbie Sunday, 28 March 2021 04:34 PM

    get rid of the religious fanatics and cranks, and put patriotic experienced past -alyers at the top.

    Senaka Sunday, 28 March 2021 08:16 PM

    Never again, I bet.

    dickie bird Sunday, 28 March 2021 09:45 PM

    Cricket Sunday, 28 March 2021 10:02 PM

    Calm down guys Sri Lanka are have yet played only 3 matches 24 matches are to be played .Lankans at 11th place with 3 matches played against West Indies recently.

    cric_commenter Sunday, 28 March 2021 10:45 PM

    Chill Down, First watch some cricket before commenting and lashing out. SL only played 3 games yet, 21 games are still to be played. If you really think SL is worse than Zim and Ire, you shouldn’t be commenting on articles such as this.

    Andrew Silva Monday, 29 March 2021 04:49 AM

    Sri Lanka should protest against the ICC and forward their grievances to the OHCHR. Come on Namal baby rise up and do your duty towards your portfolio.

    Neo Monday, 29 March 2021 08:03 AM

    Forget the past achievements and start all over again. Take responsibility for your failures. All hope is not lost. This is a gentleman's game and play it in the right spirit.

    Izzi Monday, 29 March 2021 06:12 PM

    Sri Lanka is far behind other countries like Afghanistan and Bangladesh who received test status only recently because we are still living in the past celebrating our only world cup victory 25 years ago.
