Several cricket boards such as Board of Control of Cricket in India (BCCI), England Cricket Board (ECB), and Cricket Australia (CA) want ICC Test Championship to be scrapped due to inconsistency caused in it due to Coronavirus pandemic.
ICC Test Championship got disrupted in the midway due to globally adopted Coronavirus. The sports activities all over the world were brought to a standstill and there are still no chances to drag sports scenarios ahead at least not till October-November.
International Cricket Council (ICC) however, seems in no mood to scrap the Championship.
“What the ICC is trying to do is propose and schedule more official tournaments, which will do nothing but eat into the bilateral .. windows of its own member boards. No member board that is potentially sitting on a healthy media rights deal will agree to this.” The sources feared a toll in bilateral series across the globe and obviously, for revenue generation as well.
“They (ICC) are consulting with members on understanding their priorities over the coming months. These are very early stages and a meeting will be held at the end of the month. With regard to the FTP it will have to be revisited as members start to understand what can be rescheduled and what can’t,” the sources in the know of developments said.
