Getting 120 points, Bangladesh secured the 5th position in the ICC Cricket World Cup Super League. Bangladesh is not only in a better position but also the national cricket team confirms direct qualification for the upcoming 50-over World Cup 2023.

Afghanistan's easy win over Sri Lanka yesterday confirmed Bangladesh's direct participation in the World Cup.

Besides, as hosts, India has already qualified for the tournament. England (125), Australia (120), New Zealand (120), and Pakistan (120) have also qualified.

ICC launched Cricket World Cup Super League to increase competition in ODI cricket and maintain the continuity of bilateral series among the cricket-playing nations.

As with the previous edition, the 2023 World Cup will feature ten teams. The main route for qualification is the 2020–23 Super League tournament. From the thirteen competitors in this tournament, the top seven sides plus the hosts (India) has qualified for the World Cup.

Bangladesh has become one of the superpowers with consistent success in 50-over cricket. The World Cup 2023 would be the best stage for Bangladesh to show its mastery.
