Test championship, ODI league & four-day Tests approved by ICC

The International Cricket Council has confirmed plans for a Test championship and one-day international league.

Nine teams will play six series of Test matches over two years - three at home and three away - culminating in a world Test league championship final in 2021.

A 13-team ODI league, introduced from 2021, will now be used to qualify for the World Cup.

The ICC has also given the go-ahead for a trial of four-day Test matches.
