Cricket Tsunami Alarm bells rang for the ICC
Dubai: The cricket tsunami has sounded the alarm for the ICC as it has become a challenge to accommodate international matches, new events and domestic leagues over the next eight years.
The chief executive committee of the International Cricket Council (ICC) has begun reviewing the outlines for the next eight-year period of 2023-23, according to KirkInfo.
There are two big questions before the committee, one is how much space will be left for the bilateral series in the calendar due to ICC events and domestic leagues, the other is how the World Cup Super League and Test Championship should be.
The ICC wants to add another international event to the calendar in the near future, which could be an ODI or T20 tournament. The Indian Cricket Board is its biggest opponent, with Australia and England also in favor.
The future of ODI cricket is also under consideration at the moment as T20 and Test cricket look stable but there is not much interest in the bilateral ODI series. One order is to increase the number of teams in the ODI World Cup. The top 8 teams of the league will get direct entry in the mega event of 2023, there will be a qualifying event for the remaining 2 places, there are currently 13 teams in the Super League.
