The International Cricket Council once again is considering eliminating the Champions Trophy. ICC Chief Executive Dave Richardson says the Champions Trophy and 50 overs World Cup are the same events; we want our tournaments to be different, while the World T 20 has a lot of interest in public and sponsors. So it is possible that World T 20 should be done after 2 years instead of every 4 years, for which Champions Trophy can be offered. According to the Foreign News Agency, some ICC specialists believe the Champions Trophy Championship consisting of 8 teams is very similar to the ICC’s 50-over World Cup tournament. Because the ICC has limited the World Cup to the participation of 10 teams and in 2019, 10 top teams will participate in the Mega event in England. Talking to journalists by telephone by the ICC annual conference held in London, Dave Richardson said there is no reason to keep the Champions trophy going ahead, in the future, the number of teams in the T 20 World Cup can increase in the future. The ICC is trying to separate each of its global competition from each other so that every event can set its own distinctive identity and it is a great interest in the audience whenever it is organized. Richardson said that the schedule of the Champions Trophy is scheduled to be held in India by 2021 as scheduled. However, it is being considered that during the last 4 years two T 20 World Cups should be made. David Richardson said that future T 20 being considered in the future are 16 or 20 teams being considered, to restrict the 50 overs World Cup to 10 teams is to ensure a tough competition between teams and to raise the overall level of event. That’s why it is not necessary to run with 2 over 50 tournaments. In England, the ICC annual meeting this week will be decided to give or not give test status to Ireland and Afghanistan, which is expected to be announced on Thursday.
