A genuine Test match world championship and an ODI league will be introduced to worldwide cricket after both were given in-principle agreement by the ICC Board on the final day of the governing body's meeting in Auckland.

The Test championship will consist of nine countries and will begin after the 2019 World Cup, followed by the two-top teams playing each other in a championship final in 2021.

It will culminate with a final in 2021, with previous reports hinting that match could take place at Lord's, while the one-day global league will get underway in 2021 and determine qualification for the 2023 World Cup.

They also announced that four-day test cricket will be trialled with South Africa and Zimbabwe confirmed to play this summer.

Ireland and Afghanistan were given full test status by the ICC in June, taking the total number of test-playing countries to 12.

"We would like to thank the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) most sincerely for agreeing to be our first opponent in Test cricket", Deutrom added.

"This has been delivered and every Test in the new League will be a five-day Test format", the ICC chief executive David Richardson said.

ICC said in a media release on Tuesday that Pakistan will play a "red ball" match against Ireland in April before their two-Test tour of England in 2018.

The moves are created to add "context" to all test and one-day matches during the cycle of the league, answering concerns that test cricket's popularity has been supported exclusively on existing rivalry between nations. Each series is tipped to be worth 100 league points, 60 awarded to the series victor and 40 distributed on the basis of results in individual matches.

The ODI series will become a direct qualification pathway to the World Cup.

Manohar congratulated ICC members for "putting the interests of the development of the game first" in an oblique reference to the leagues' long and fraught development.

"The ICC Board decision means we can now go and finalise a playing schedule.as well as the points system, hosting arrangements and competition terms".

"If one looks at the concept in isolation. then it's pretty obvious that traditionalists, which includes many players who consider Test cricket as the pinnacle of the game, are not going to be in favour of a change to four days".

That, he said, was the basis of the decision to trial four-day tests, though he indicated that move had considerably less than unanimous support from member nations.
