ICC To Hold World Test Championship For Best Test Team
#1
Advertisement
World cricket governing body, ICC plans to host a two-yearly tournament like World Test championship in 2013 to pick up the best Test team in the world. The decision on the matter will be taken at an ICC executive board meeting in Cape Town next month.

As per the reports, England is expected to host the inaugural competition in the summer of 2013.

ICC spokesperson Colin Gibson said more details would be revealed after the executive board meeting.


The world Test championship will be held to find out the best Test, which means there needs to be higher prize money than the World Cup or World Twenty20 to attract the viewers. However, everything will depend on the quantum of revenues from the sponsors or broadcasters.

The sources said that a five-member committee including BCCI secretary N Srinivasan would submit its recommendation next month. Accordingly, a decision can be made on the matter.

The format including the number of playing teams would be decided after the approval from ICC. There might be a composition of the top four or the top eight teams for the TestChampionship, sources said.
