ICC undecided about future of Test Championship final
International Cricket Council (ICC) has officially launched ICC Super League of the ODI World Cup. The league will be played from July 30. This league will decide which seven teams will take place in the 2023 World Cup. That was what Test Championship was doing in big length cricket.
Lord’s was to be the final between the top two teams based on the results of the Test series at home and at home for two years. And the winning team in that Test was declared the best in the Test. But the Coronation Age has called this unprecedented initiative into question.
The International Cricket Council (ICC) said today that the fate of the World Test Championship depends on the teams. The final of the Test Championship at Lord’s in June next year is possible only if all the teams can re-organize the series following the health rules after the coronation. But the company is skeptical about the possibility of ending all tours by June as several bilateral series have been postponed.
In a video message today, ICC General Manager Geoff Allardyce said: “We are currently discussing with members how they will handle their schedules. Many teams have already rescheduled. And a lot depends on how the rest of the schedule is arranged. If you see the newly made schedule, you will understand when the final can be organized. But so far the final is scheduled for June 2021. But we are trying to understand how the members are planning to organize the series that has been delayed. ‘
The first nine teams are taking part in the Test Championship. With the exception of Zimbabwe, Afghanistan and Ireland, points have been counted on last year’s full-member Test series wins and losses. India is at the top so far. The other two are Australia.
