The Netherlands and Nepal have been afforded Twenty20 International status by the International Cricket Council.
Chief executive David Richardson has countered suggestion that the International Cricket Council's anti-corruption and security unit is proving ineffective.
The Netherlands successfully chased a huge 190-run target in less than 14 overs to book a berth in the next stage of the World Twenty20 - and boot Ireland and Zimbabwe out of the competition entirely.
The cool, calm and collection of captain Brendan Taylor steered Zimbabwe to a tight five-wicket victory over the Netherlands in Wednesday's crucial World Twenty20 First Round Group B fixture at Sylhet Stadium in Bangladesh.
The Netherlands overcame a day of off-field drama on Monday to win their World Twenty20 qualifier against the UAE by six wickets in Sylhet, with controversial addition Tom Cooper proving the decisive player.
