Don't get how Namibia made it and Nepal didn't,and Nepal didn't and Kenyan a 2nd African side did make it to the WYC.
Namibia qualified as they finished as top Associate in the last event, above Nepal.

Nepal then lost to Afghanistan in the qualifiers and were knocked out. Pretty harsh.

Namibia qualifying left Kenya free to take the African spot.

Thats the issue with the Regional Qualifier route. If it were done more merit based we'd see 2 Asian,2 European sides easily make it. As is two have to sit out, this time being Nepal and Scotland.

With Ireland and Afghanistan now FM's I imagine they'll get auto qualification from now on as well.
