It shouldn't but I'm not sure which division Germany is in. It's a long pull to get to qualifier tournaments from below Div 2. If you do, the top 8 make it even more difficult to get to play them in a World Cup setting at 50 ir T20

Presently Div 2 has a 6 team 50 over tournament with the top 4 gaining full ODI status and sllow them to try to qualify for WC2023

That includes Namibia, Canada, PNG, Hong Kong, Oman and USA. Players from the top 4 would lose the ability to play for other countries I think. They'll play 36 ODIs in the next 4 years looking to qualify for the WC 'Qualifying Week' after which presently only TWO get to play any of the 'top' 8 in the Super League.

There is another group below the 'Boys Club' 6 that are involved which includes Ireland, Afghahistan, Zimbabwe, Netherlands and Scotland who are part of what i
s called the ICC ODI Championship. Along with Bangladesh and Windies if they are 7th and 8th in the top bunch.

It's all gonna get sorted next year it seems. Bet it won't change the 'World Cup' setup and make it more global.
