ICC to start nine-team Test and 13-team ODI league

The ICC is set to start a nine- team Test league and a 13-team ODI league in 2019 and 2020 respectively, aiming to bring “context and meaning to bilateral cricket”.

The Test series league will see nine teams play six series over two years — three home and three away — with each having a minimum of two Tests and a maximum of five. All matches will be played over five days culminating in a World Test League Championship Final.

The ODI league will be a direct qualification pathway towards the World Cup and will be contested by the 12 full members plus the winners of the current ICC World Cricket League Championship.

In the first edition of the league, each side will play four home and four away series each comprising of three ODIs moving to all teams playing each other from the second cycle onwards.
