Dubai, Sep 19 (PTI) Sri Lanka have become the eighth and last team to earn a direct qualification into the ICC Cricket World Cup 2019, following West Indies' defeat against England in the first ODI at Old Trafford.

West Indies' seven-wicket defeat last night means that they cannot move ahead of Sri Lanka (86 points) by September 30, the cut off mark for direct entry.

The Caribbean side (78 points in the ODI Team Rankings) can still qualify for the World Cup by finishing in the top two of next year
