Namibia has now bumped "Team USA" out of the top three in CWC.
UAB could possibly (but highly unlikely) leapfrog Namibia so the
pre-qualifier should be pretty much set. Can only see UAB causing
"Team USA" and Canucks any problems taking the top two places.

Globe article saying the QP tournament will be held in Namibia starting in March. Hope Namibia do finish top 3 in League 2 so they don't play and host yet another important ICC qualifier tourney.

This tournament will be Canada's first ODIs since 2014.

I’ve heard that Canada will go to Sri Lanka for a month (!) before going to Namibia for the tournament.

^ If memory serves Canada's preparations for the 2019 qualifier included extensive preparations in Sri Lanka. Then the team returned home before going on another tour to South Africa prior to heading to Namibia for the crucial tournament. Somewhere along the line the players were over-worked or lost their focus and started very poorly. They could not recover. I hope CC has learned the lesson - it is a fine line between adequate preparation and too much.
