Playing 14 matches in over two-and half-year and winning eight out of it, they secured one of the four qualification spots from the eight teams competing in the last round of competition.
From 1982 to 2014, the team have played in 47 matches in the ICC Cricket World Cup Qualifier (known as the ICC Trophy until 2005). During that time, they won 21 matches, lost 25 with one ending in a no-result.
Captain Babar Hayat played six matches in the previous event four years ago in New Zealand, scoring 153 runs in five innings with a high score of 46 not out, and is now looking forward to pitting his wits against other top teams.
"It means a lot to all of us playing in the qualifier playing in front of the world. I am very confident with the boys in the team, everyone is committing themselves to competing hard."
