The 2018 ICC World Cricket League Division Four was an international cricket tournament that took place during April and May 2018 in Malaysia.[1][2] It formed part of the 2017–22 cycle of the World Cricket League (WCL) which determined the qualification for the 2023 Cricket World Cup.[3][4][5] The top two teams were promoted to the 2018 ICC World Cricket League Division Three tournament[6] and the bottom two teams were relegated to Division Five.[7]

Two of the three final round of group stage matches finished as a no result because of rain.[8] Per the rules of the tournament, the matches were replayed on the final day of the competition, with the play-off round scrapped and used as a reserve day.[8] Therefore, the final league standings were used to determine the promotion and relegation places.[8]

Uganda won the tournament and were promoted to Division Three,[9] along with runners-up Denmark.[10] Vanuatu and Bermuda finished in fifth and sixth respectively, and were relegated to Division Five.[11] Hosts Malaysia finished third and Jersey finished fourth, therefore both team remained in Division Four.[11] Ben Stevens of Jersey was named as the player of the tournament.[12]
