Mumbai - The International Cricket Council (ICC) has confirmed that the 2015 World Cup will be contested by 10 teams, with none of the ICC Associate nations being involved.

The decision, originally announced in October 2010, was ratified by the ICC's executive board meeting on Monday.

The 2011 tournament, which was won by co-host India, featured 14 teams and took 43 days to complete, prompting criticism that it was too long.

The 2015 edition will be co-hosted by Australia and New Zealand and will feature the ICC's 10 full member nations: Australia, Bangladesh, England, India, New Zealand, Pakistan, South Africa, Sri Lanka, West Indies and Zimbabwe.
