ICC Announces Plan For World Test Championship 13 Team ODI League

As hosts, India and the next seven highest-ranked teams in the ODI league as of March 31, 2022 will qualify directly for the World Cup while the bottom five sides will get a second chance to qualify through the ICC World Cup Qualifier. "The World Test Championship will get underway next year with the ODI league kicking off in 2020 as part of the qualification towards the ICC Cricket World Cup 2023", said the ICC Chief Executive David Richardson.

Australia's home series will be against Pakistan, New Zealand (both 2019-20) and India, while they also travel to Bangladesh and South Africa in early 2020.

It will be made up of the 12 Test-playing nations, along with the Netherlands, the winners of the World Cricket League Championship.

They will then play two home Tests against England, after which they will cross the Tasman for a much-awaited three-Test series in Australia, including New Zealand's first Boxing Day Test at the famous Melbourne Cricket ground in 32 years since 1987.

Under the new system, the Black Caps first involvement in the Test Championship (WTC) will start in Sri Lanka in August next year.

India's opening series in the World Test Championship is against the Windies in the Caribbean in July 2019, while their first ODI series in the league is against Sri Lanka in June 2020. The two top-ranked sides progress to the final.

A 13-team one-day worldwide league involving the 12 Test playing nations and Holland, running from May 1 2020 to March 31 2022, will act as a qualification tournament with only hosts India certain of progressing. The nine top-ranked Test nations will play six series, home and away, in the two-year cycle with the top two teams to play off in the final in June 2021, likely to be held in England.

This league will serve as a qualification pathway for the ICC Men's Cricket World Cup 2023.

"There's a lot to look forward to, but it's hard to go past the three match Test series in Australia next year as a highlight".

"It's exciting for fans and players to see the new context which is being given to ODI and test cricket", Williamson said in a statement. All the sides will play eight series over a two-year cycle. "I think all New Zealanders will have a circle around that one".

ICC chief executive David Richardson said the new schedule would provide context around all bilateral global fixtures.
