International Cricket Council (ICC) has announced major news and updates for the most-awaited World Test Championship. The tournament will be held from July 15th, 2019- April 30th, 2021.

During the tournament, nine top-ranked sides in the world will compete with one another, each side playing six series on a home-and-away basis against mutually selected opponents in the two-year cycle.

The two sides which will emerge as the ultimate winners will face each other at the ICC World Test Championship final in June 2021.

One of the biggest changes ICC has announced for this tournament is the removal of the traditional coin toss. The coin is flipped and each team is given a side, heads or tails, accordingly, they get to decide whether they’d like to bat or bowl first.

This time around, ICC is giving fans the opportunity to decide which side gets to pick.

ICC will be applying for both numbers and Instagram handles to kits from the beginning of the World Test Championship. This decision will help the sport reach out to the younger generation on the social media platforms which they use the most.

“Yes, it starts from August 1 for the World Test Championship. It is a part of the wider plan to promote Test cricket,” Claire Furlong, ICC’s GM Manager (Strategic Communications) was quoted as saying by PTI earlier.

ICC has introduced a number of new rules and regulations to change the game in a way to attract more cricket fanatics.

Now, the real question is… is this an APRIL FOOLS joke? Or is ICC really changing the rules?

Well, all of these rules seem interesting and we’re excited to see how they shape the future of the game. If you think they’re legit or an April Fool’s prank, let us know in the comment box below!
