The ICC on Monday confirmed that the much-hyped World Test Championship will be played over a two-year period (2019-20) with the final being held in 2021.

Meanwhile, an industry executive has said that there will be a clause in ICC media rights agreement, stressing on the fact that India will host the World T20 in 2021. It was hard. "And don't forget a 13-team ODI league is a huge step in making sure the 50 over format has much more context going forward", the former Proteas keeper said.

All member women's teams will be awarded T20I status on July 1, whilst all member men's teams will be awarded T20I status on January 1, 2019 following the cut-off point for qualification to the ICC World T20 2020.

Addressing a news conference after an ICC board meeting, Richardson said the punishments under its code of conduct for such misbehaviours were inadequate. The relevance of champions trophy always has questioned.

Mumbai: The International Cricket Council (ICC) on Thursday made some important announcements during a board meeting in Kolkata, with the fixtures for the ICC World Cup 2019 being finalised. This provides opportunities for 16 teams to compete at a global level with a sub-regional, regional and global qualification process every two years, giving more regular cricket to more Members. It was also confirmed that the championship will not feature India-Pakistan clashes unless the teams make it to the finals. The India-Pakistan Tests have been kept out of the FTP as the Indian government does not approve bilateral cricket with the neighbouring country for political reasons, including Pakistan's policy of harbouring and instigating terrorists for disruptive activities in India. When asked if the 50-over World Cup and Champions Trophy looked similar, then how different would be the World T20 in 2020 and 2021, Richardson called the situation a "little bit unfortunate".

The ICC approved the launch of a new nine-team Test league and 13-team one-day global (ODI) league in October.

"I would like to commend our Members on reaching agreement on the FTP which means the ICC World Test Championship and ODI league are now cemented into the calendar".
