The International Cricket Council (ICC) are set to give five Associate and Affiliate members warnings about getting their affairs in order within the next year.

The Associate members being warned are Nepal, USA and Zambia, while the Affiliate members consist of Mali and Morocco.

Brunei, Tonga and Turkey are currently at risk of being suspended or removed from the ICC. A decision on those three nations will be taken on June 24.

According to an ICC document, Nepal and Tonga breached administration statute 2.1, which relates to having a full-time paid administrator.

The USA has violated governance statute 3.1, which relates to the nation recognising one governing body in the country.

Zambia has not been compliant with finance statute 5.3, which states that members must generate revenue independent of the ICC that exceeds US$25,000 or 10% of their funding from the ICC.

Mali have broken the same rule as Zambia, but since they are an Affiliate nation, their independent revenue requirement in $2,500.

Morrocco have been penalised for breaching four different statutes, which relate to development planning, recognising a sole governing body in the country, having an approved constitution and submitting an annual budget of expenditures on an annual basis.

Finally, Turkey was suspended for not recognising a sole governing body in their country and not submitting an annual budget of their expenditure.
