Cricket shake-up as Test championship and ODI league rubber-stamped

Agreement was reached during the International Cricket Council meeting in Auckland, with the match's date and venue yet to be confirmed.

They will be joined by the bottom-three ranked ODI nations - Zimbabwe, Afghanistan and Ireland - the top four sides from the ICC World Cricket League Championship and the top two from the ICC World Cricket League Division 2.

The ICC also approved the trial of four-day Tests if both sides agree but all Test championship matches will be five-day contests. ICC CEO, David Richardson also stated, "Our priority was to develop an global cricket structure that gave context and meaning across worldwide cricket and particularly in the Test arena".

"Bar none, every (ICC member team) likes the idea of hosting a Test championship (final) but whether that works logistically or not is another matter", he added. Each series will have a minimum of two Test matches and a maximum of five.

"For five days you have to graft it out".

'This means fans around the world can enjoy worldwide cricket knowing every game counts and in the case of the ODI league, it counts towards qualification to the ICC Cricket World Cup'. While in the first cycle, each team will be playing four home and four away series, with each series comprising of three ODIs, the second cycle will include all teams playing each other. The ODI league will first have a two-year cycle ahead of the 2023 World Cup.

Ireland played their first one-day global against England in 2006 and qualified for the World Cup the following year, where they beat Pakistan and Bangladesh. "The top eight will qualify automatically for the World Cup".

"The trial is exactly that, a trial, just in the same way day-night tests and technology have been trialled".
