Really struggling to support the players in this stoush....

Especially the ones crying poor the most who happen to be the ones who make the most $$$, especially from the IPL

Tend to back the players imo. They're asking for 20% as I understand, far less that most major sports demand.

What is the World Test League Championship? Cricket set for overhaul, Test, one-day, the Ashes

RUSSELL GOULD,
Herald Sun
14 October 2017


TEST cricket will get a grand final and meaningless one-day games will be axed after the International Cricket Council agreed to make every match worth winning.

The first ‘World Test League Championship Final’ will be held in 2021 after nine Test nations play six series each over two years — three home and three away — most likely beginning with the 2019 Ashes.

Series can be two to five games and points will be allocated by a system yet to be decided. Then every two years the top two nations will face-off in a clash to decide Test cricket’s best team, with a massive cash prize on offer.

— Nine Test nations (excluding Ireland, Afghanistan and Zimbabwe) play six series each over two years — three home and three away — earning points via a system to be decided.

— First series will be the 2019 Ashes in the UK.

— The two leading teams will play first ever World Test League Championship Final in 2021.

— A 13-team one-day league will be a direct qualification path for the World Cup.

— Each team will play four home-and-away one-day series, of maximum three matches each, beginning in 2020, before the 2023 World Cup.

Nepotism.

S Marsh will make some tinny 60 odd that amounts to nothing in the overall result and secure his place for the series.

Cant wait.
