T20I status for all 104 ICC members

T20I status for all 104 ICC members

South Africa will go face to face with England in the ICC Cricket World Cup 2019 opener at The Oval after the Proteas' schedule of matches in the 30 May to 14 July tournament was confirmed today. Their match against arch-rivals Pakistan will be at Old Trafford in Manchester on June 16.

Stating that the recent spurt in the number of domestic Twenty20 leagues is at times impacting the worldwide bilateral cricket schedule, ICC Chief Executive David Richardson on Thursday said "clever planning, better scheduling and a regulatory framework" is necessary to ensure these tournaments can continue without adversely affecting global cricket.

While speaking about the Future Tours Programme (FTP) for the period of 2019-2023, Richardson informed that the ICC, in all likelihood, will change the next edition of the Champions Trophy, to be held in India in 2021, to a World T20 event.

They will play Afghanistan under lights at Taunt on next up with their other two night matches against the West Indies in Manchester on June 22 and against Australia at Lord's in their penultimate, and potentially crucial match on June 29.

The semifinals will be at Old Trafford and Edgbaston.

'Smallville' Actress Allison Mack Arrested For Role In NXIVM Sex Cult
Its leader, Keith Raniere , was arrested in Mexico during March and charged with sex trafficking and forced labor conspiracy. According to former members of the cult, Mack operated as his right-hand woman and served as the leader after his arrest.

Cricket Committee: The Board ratified the appointment of Belinda Clark of Australia as the Women's Committee representative on the Cricket Committee replacing Clare Connor who had served a maximum of three three-year terms. Given that the ICC Test Championships will only consist of day matches played with the red ball, the BCCI saw no goal in playing a day/night Test with a pink ball. While the Test Championship will be among nine teams, the ODI World Cup Qualification League will see 13 teams competing.

With domestic T20 leagues proliferating the cricket landscape, and at times coinciding with an worldwide bilateral series, Richardson felt that the situation needs addressing.

"In all likelihood, the Champions Trophy in 2021 will be a World T20 There are occasions where T20 Leagues are competing with worldwide bilateral series".

"The Cricket World Cup is the third most watched global event and has huge interest and appeal amongst cricket fans. Our ambition is to grow the game and deliver the greatest ever cricket celebration and with that in mind we have very carefully developed our ticket prices", he said.

In all, 11 venues will be used with all 10 teams in a slimmed-down World Cup involved in an all-play-all first round before the top four advance to the semi-finals.
