All 10 squads for the 2015 World Cup Qualifier in New Zealand, which begins on 13th January, have been named.

The two sides that reach the final, in Lincoln on 1st February, will qualify for the 2015 World Cup alongside Afghanistan and Ireland, who qualified through the World Cricket League Championship earlier in the year.

The overall winner will join Afghanistan, Australia, Bangladesh, England, New Zealand and Sri Lanka in Pool A of the 2015 World Cup while the losers will take their place in Pool B with India, Ireland, Pakistan, South Africa, West Indies and Zimbabwe.

The qualifying tournament format was unveiled last week with Canada, Hong Kong, Nepal, Scotland, United Arab Emirates in Group A with Kenya, Namibia, the Netherlands, Papua New Guinea and Uganda in Group B.

The top three sides in each group progress to the Super Six stage, where they will play the three teams that have made it from the other group before the final, at the Bert Sutcliffe Oval in Lincoln.
