Default Breaking News: ICC Test, ODI Leagues Closer to Reality

Efforts to contextualize international cricket are a step closer to reality after the ICC's chief executives committee (CEC) worked out a viable schedule for a Test and ODI league.

Option C, as the proposal is known, includes a rolling Test league starting in 2019, in which the top-nine Test teams will play 12 Test series on a home-and-away basis over four years. The Test league, as it stands, does not have any space for either Ireland or Afghanistan; Zimbabwe, the lowest-ranked Test side currently, will also not be part of the league. The proposal also contains an ODI league of the top 13 teams to be played over two years from 2020.

Good news for us if it happens. We will have lots more series against the top teams than ever before. Also, the number of meaningless repetitive bilateral series will reduce and there will be more context to all the series. The test league applies only to the top 9 test teams though.

I'm really happy with this "Option C" which would give Bangladesh guaranteed 6 series against higher ranking teams over 4 year cycle as far as Test league is concerned, but I'm really disappointed to see no series against Indian team in ODI league which would not only deprive our fans enjoying healthy revelry with Indians, but also affect BCB's revenue stream as ODI matches against Indians normally come with highly lucrative sponsorship deals.

Overall, I personally feel that world cricket is heading to the right direction by contextualizing each and every match (and series for that matter).

Bangladesh seems like the biggest winner here.

Pretty sad that we are not going to play test with England till 2023. I believe we got some chances to beat them at home.
