European Championships 2nd Division 2004
This is the first time that the European 2nd Division Championships are being staged as a separate tournament - in 2000 (Glasgow) and 2002 (Belfast) they were held alongside the 1st Division Championships.
The tournament is being hosted by the Belgian Cricket Federation, with matches being staged on four grounds in Antwerp, Brussels and Mechelen. The competing nations are France, Germany, Gibraltar, Italy, Israel and Norway. AS part of the on-going World Cup Qualifying Series, the winner will join seven other nations in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, in January 2005 to play off for the twelfth and final place in the 2005 ICC Trophy (to be held in Ireland in July 2005). The top five nations in the ICC Trophy qualify for the 2007 ICC Cricket World Cup.
