4. Afghanistan and Ireland: welcome to the top table
By a unanimous vote, Afghanistan and Ireland join ten other countries in having full ICC membership and Test status. This allows the nations to play the longer (five days per match) form of cricket. Ireland, currently champions of the World Cricket League, are understandably happy, as are Afghanistan who have played international cricket for only 13 years. While their next International fixtures are some way off - Ireland vs The Netherlands in August and Afghanistan vs Hong Kong in October, it is hoped Test series against the top sides will now be arranged quickly (by cricketing standards).
