New international Test and ODI leagues agreed in principle by ICC members...

The Test series league will see nine teams play six series over two years – three home and three away, while the ODI league will be a direct qualification pathway towards the ICC Cricket World Cup and will be contested by the 12 Full Members plus the winners of the current ICC World Cricket League Championship.


  • Nine-team Test league and 13-team ODI league aims to bring context and meaning to bilateral cricket
  • ICC Chairman Shashank Manohar: “Bringing context to bilateral cricket is not a new challenge, but this is the first time a genuine solution has been agreed on”
  • ICC Chief Executive David Richardson: “This is a significant point in time for ICC Members and our collective desire to secure a vibrant future for international bilateral cricket”

The road to international cricket's first Test Championship final has been formally unveiled, but debate remains over who exactly will host it - England or the championship table-toppers.

The BCCI, however, is believed to be of the view that the final should be hosted by whichever team finishes at the top of the championship table at the cut-off date for championship matches - which is the end of March 2021 in the case of the inaugural edition.


The ICC would bear the cost of "marketing, promoting and delivering" the final and retain all media rights to the final in 2021 and 2023. The paper also says that Star, the ICC's host broadcaster, has a proposal to pay $10 million for each final for the India-only market. Syndication revenue outside of India is projected at $5 million per event. This would be the first Test to be played under such conditions, with Test rights traditionally held by the host country.

Who will host the World Test Championship final?
