ICC Puts Forward T20 Champions Cup, ODI Champions Cup For 2023-2031 Cycle
The International Cricket Council is trying its best to make the game more global. The associate nations are coming up the ranks and the game is slowly but surely getting the recognition in the other parts of the world. The apex body has come up with some interesting tournaments for the next cycle of 2023-2031.
ICC has proposed T20 Champions Cup and ODI Champions Cup for the next cycle. The members are asked to share their views for the respective bids for global events. The T20 World Cup will be played between the top 10 sides according to ICC T20I rankings and all these teams will play 48 matches throughout the tourney.

On the other side, the 50-overs mega event will be played between the top six teams which will replace the Champions Trophy. A total of 16 matches will be played in the proposed ODI Champions Cup.
However, there is another twist in the tale. According to reports in ESPN Cricinfo, the Big Three, Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI), Cricket Australia (CA) and England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB) are not happy with the proposal. These three big nations want more bilateral series as it generates more revenue for them.
Consequently, it would be interesting to note how things pan out between ICC and the big three of the cricket world. In fact, the governing body had come out with this proposal back in October 2019 that includes at least one ICC event every year like T20 Champions Cup to be played in 2024 and 2028, ODI Champions Cup in 2025 and 2029 alongside World Cups in 2026, 2027, 2030 and 2031.
