Map of World depicting the venues of ICC World Test Championship 2019-21 for all the teams

World Test Championship is a league for Test Cricket, which the cricketing world has been lacking till now. While there are ‘World Cups’ for other formats organised every four years, Test cricket has remained limited to bilateral series, based on which Test rankings are assigned. However, it was observed that in bilateral series, the interest remains limited to the countries which are playing the matches and does not generate excitement or anticipation at a global level. Hence, it was decided to introduce a world championship for the Test format too.

Finally, the inaugural 2019-21 ICC World Test Championship has begun on August 1, 2019 with the Ashes series in England. The International Cricket Council has 12 countries with Full Member status. Of these, nine teams will participate in this championship: Australia, Bangladesh, England, India, Pakistan, New Zealand, South Africa, Sri Lanka and West Indies. Each team will play Test series with six other teams over a period of two years, three on home turf and three away from home. The finalists will be decided based on a unique point system, and the final will be held at Lord’s in England in 2021.
