Help  ICC approves creation of a Test League
Advertisement
#1
At its board meeting, the International Cricket Council (ICC) approved several recommendations from the CEC.

One of these is that the Future Tours Programme (FTP) should consist of a Test league to provide context for all Test matches. The league would determine the top four teams to qualify for an ICC Test play-off.

The play-off should be held once every four years to determine the Test champion team with a request to hold the first such play-off in 2013.

The FTP should also consist of a One-Day International league, the first to run from April 2011 until April 2014, culminating in the crowning of an ODI league champion. This would run separate to the ICC Cricket World Cup

It also wants the ICC Cricket World Cup to consist of a 10-team format from 2015. The ICC World Twenty20 should consist of a 16-team format from 2012, with the women’s event continuing to run alongside.

The ICC wants the introduction of Twenty20 International rankings table as soon as this is justifiable. The ICC board was given an update on the excellent progress being made towards the ICC Cricket World Cup 2011 in Bangladesh, India and Sri Lanka.

ICC CEO Haroon Lorgat said, “We are pleased with the considerable progress made particularly in the areas of venue preparation and security. The ICC Cricket World Cup is the ICC’s flagship event which will provide a showcase for some of the best players who have ever played this great game and it will also provide the world with a glimpse of the colour and passion for cricket that exists in the host nations."
