The ICC have awarded the next two World Twenty20 tournaments in 2012 and 2014 to Sri Lanka and Bangladesh respectively, while England will host the Champions Trophy in 2013. The 2015 World Cup will be held by Australia and New Zealand and the 2013 Women's World Cup will be played in India. The decisions were announced after a meeting of the ICC board in Singapore.

The Chief Executives Committee (CEC) and Governance Review Committee (GRC) working groups met jointly to discuss the ICC events programme post 2015, the frequency and format for global events and qualification for those events, and the introduction of Test and ODI leagues to provide context to the traditional formats of the game.

A CEC working group has been set up to assist in developing a workable solution. The group, comprising David Collier (England and Wales), Nishantha Ranatunga (Sri Lanka), N Srinivasan (India), James Sutherland (Australia) and David Richardson (ICC general manager, cricket) will meet again with the GRC before submitting a proposal for the CEC to consider at its September meeting.

Haroon Lorgat, the ICC chief executive, said the council was considering using Twenty20 to spread the popularity of the game and curtailing participation in the 50-over World Cup. "There is clearly an appetite from all quarters to examine the make-up of the ICC Cricket World Cup and the ICC World Twenty20 and seek the best balance between excellence and development," he said. "In terms of the number of participating teams, it is possible that the World Cup could be reduced and the World Twenty20 expanded.

"Although we have made good progress, this exercise requires more work. We know there are exciting opportunities to protect and promote all three formats but we must exercise patience as we consider all aspects in introducing context and content in international cricket."

Good news.
We have about four years to plan for that. But will it going to clash with the World cup football 2014?

I like the idea that ICC is considering restricting Tests and ODI and let T20 be the expansion tool.

Once they come to terms with the notion that Test cricket has no viable future outside of the existing 7 to 11 nations (WI, BD, ZIM & IRE being the last four) things will be easier to manage as they won't have to put up the facade of promoting Test cricket globally. Same is probably true for ODIs. Come up with a solid & fair schedule for these 2 and let there be a drawn out qualification for the WC T20 and include many more countries into the mix.

I hope BCB is not too blind to still ignore the importance of T20 especially as a host country.

Great news. Hope we can play well in the World T20 in 2014 in our home soil. We're gonna have to build some nice stadiums in other places around the country.

we better improve in T20s before 2014,because the way we played T20s so far(except the win vs WI)
I don't think we even deserve to host T20 cup.

We seriously need to improve our T20 game or else this might be a little embarrasing.

Knew it.

I cancelled my tour of BD plan in next year's WC coz already been there this year. But now that we'll have another one in '14, I have every chance of seeing a WC (and that of T20, so more matches and less days :D) in our home soil (that is if I stay alive).

^ lol seriously. Aren't we suppose to go to Semis or even win the WC11 final? Weren't we suppose to win the Asia cup too? And that was the most disappointing tournament. So the more you want, the less you will get. WC07 is a good ex. We just went there to play well in the 1st round, and see Ind SL go through.

Mmw, Afghanistan will win the T20 World Cup.

Mmw again, noone will care if they win..they will not gain Test status even if they win.

I don't see the point of us getting excited about T20 WC. Its just an extra expenditure with hardly any chance of us even being in the 2nd round. There's a much bigger chance with 50 over WC next year. Unless we're in the final of a T20 WC, results don't mean too much in the long term.
