The ICC is proposing a T20 Champions Cup that will include the participation of the top 10 nations for 48 matches.
The T20 Champions Cup is the most talked-about from ICC’s proposed set of tournaments for the broadcasting rights cycles from 2023 to 2031.
Currently, the biggest struggle being faced by the ICC and the richest member nations is the difficulty of space in the calendar during the mentioned period cycle.
In October last year, the proposal for a T20 Champions Cup was passed which has since become a topic for discussion between cricket boards from all over the world.
The proposal includes a T20 Champions Cup in 2024 and 2028 and ODI Champions Cup in both 2025 and 2029, while there will be T20 World Cups in 2026 and 2030 and ODI World Cups in 2027 and 2031.
The outline of the 50-over Champions Cup is similar to the Champions Trophy with six teams playing 16 games. Meanwhile, the T20 Champions Cup will be as big as the World Cup especially with the planned 48 matches.
Right now, the most prestigious cricket tournament organised by the ICC is the Cricket World Cup. The latest edition of the tournament happened last year from May 30 to July 14 and was hosted by England and Wales.
The English cricket team took home their first championship title after winning against New Zealand at the Lord’s in London.
