ICC approves four World Test Championship editions between 2023-31

Four editions of the ICC World Test Championship will be held in the next eight years, the Board had decided on Tuesday

The World Test Championship will continue during the next eight-year cycle between 2023-2031, a decision which was approved at the ICC Board meeting on Tuesday.

ICC chairman Greg Barclay had earlier expressed his apprehension about the tournament after the first edition, which began on August 1, 2019, went through multiple roadblocks due to the COVID-19

"Yes, there will be four more editions of World Test Championship in the next eight-year cycle between 2023-2031. The board believes that World Test Championship has given a context to Test cricket and will help in popularising the traditional format among younger generation," the ICC board member told PTI.

The inaugural World Test Championship final will be held between India and New Zealand in Southampton from June 18-22.
