World Test Championship is Almost Here and This is How it Works

Along with the Ashes series in England, August 1, 2019 will also see the beginning of the ICC World Test championship. Brought in to add context to bilateral Test series, the first edition of the World Test Championship will run till June 2021 when two finalists will play for the title at Lord's in London.

Here's a detailed look at the Test championship.

History

The concept for a Test championship was first floated in 2010. The initial plan was to hold the competition in 2013, replacing the 2013 ICC Champions Trophy. However, that was scrapped with the plans deferred to 2017. That too didn't materialise.

The plan for the upcoming 2019-2021 Test championship was put in place in October 2017.

Number of teams

The top nine teams in the ICC Test rankings will participate in the Test championship. They are: India, New Zealand, South Africa, England, Australia, Sri Lanka, Pakistan, West Indies and Bangladesh.

Matches involving Afghanistan and Ireland will not be a part of the championship.
