ICC approves global status for T20 matches b/w Associate Members

Indian Premier League

However, it is learnt that ICC hopes to include an India vs Pakistan fixture in the second cycle of the World Test Championship which is due to be held on 2021-23. 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.

Chief executive Dave Richardson said they want players to respect the culture of the game, following the outcry in Australia's recent series in South Africa when bowler Cameron Bancroft was caught tampering with the ball. There will be a 2019 and 2023 ODI World Cup, effectively scrapping the very concept of Champions Trophy, a tournament which was described as irrelevant by several critics given the presence of a full-fledged quadrennial World Cup. Australia begin their title defence in a day-night match against Afghanistan on 1 June in Bristol.The tournament, which features 10 teams playing nine round-robin matches, runs from 30 May to 14 July.The 60,000-seat London Stadium is much larger than any United Kingdom cricket ground - Lord's has the highest capacity of the World Cup venues with 30,000 seats.The former Olympic Stadium was considered at the request of the International Cricket Council (ICC), who wanted to replicate the 2015 World Cup in Australia and New Zealand, which saw games held at large stadiums.Steve Elworthy, the tournament's managing director, said they had done studies for 18 months to see what would be required to turn that venue into a cricket facility."I think the unique elements of what cricket needs, and what cricket wants, is a step too far", Elworthy told BBC Sport."Cricket hasn't been played there before". In totality, there will be 36 Tests over 24 months, confirmed ICC at the end of its quarterly meeting in Kolkata on Thursday.

LSU RB Derrius Guice, other Tigers, surprisingly fall in the NFL Draft
Guice created a strong pushback from LGBTQ advocates with the accusations, claims he made in a SiriusXM interview last month. The NFL conducted an investigation and found no evidence that any team asked Guice inappropriate questions.

Richardson said introducing a red and yellow card system to the sport, as is the case with rugby, is one of the options that would be considered, to help clean up the game. The relevance of champions trophy always has questioned. 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.

International Cricket Council has approved international status for T20 matches between all of its Associate Members.

Arizona teachers line up for miles
Even more teachers are expected at the Capitol on Friday, with almost 30 school districts closing because of the teacher walkouts. But organizers of the so-called #RedforEd movement are pushing for $1 billion in new education funding and other demands.

The ICC Members have also signed off a new Future Tours Programme (FTP) for 2019-2023 that incorporates the introduction of a World Test Championship and an additional ICC World T20 event in place of the Champions Trophy in 2021. 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.

The World T20 in 2020 will be held in Australia and the World T20 in 2021 will be held in India. The ODI league will serve as a direct qualification competition for the World Cup and will run from 2020 to 2022. That means now there will be two back to back ICC T20 world cup in the year 2020 and 2021.
