Its like the Irish just flipped a switch and turned their form on for 2018. They were pitiful from 2015 till the end of 2017.

I really feel like the ICC have made a big mistake making it a 10 Team World Cup, even a 12 Team WC seems too small and with the associates stronger than ever it makes little sense.

Is the 2023 WC also 10
Team ?

In theory yes, but in practice it will be discussed properly at ICC level after 2019.

IMO being a full member should mean automatic qualification to a World Cup

IMO, it should be merit based, not down to some arbitrary factor like membership of a club... That said, 10 is way too few. 16 perhaps?

In that case then it should be a qualification process for every single team regardless of rankings.

The ODI Championship is technically the qualification process for the full member countries.

Ireland are constantly questioned yet they are a heart team full of passion and it’s in the Irish blood to give it your all. I am so glad they have test status because the nation will get behind them , once that happens they will inspire younger generations to play .when the younger generations learns to play and has the heart of the older generations we shall see a very talented squad that will challenge the best ect . How good will cricket be if you see Ireland beat England in a test match . I cannot imagine how good it will be
The Zimbabwe Cricket team have found Ebola in one of their members, but they're not concerned because they have also found Ebatsmen and Efielda!
