Malaysia hosted the event, from 23 to 30 October 2014.[1] It was originally to be held in Uganda, but in September 2014 the ICC shifted the tournament to Malaysia due to security concerns, at the suggestion of the Malaysian Cricket Association.[2] Players from Bermuda and the United States had indicated they would not take part in the tournament if it were held in Uganda.[3][4]
