The International Cricket Council (ICC) on Thursday chose to change over the 2021 Champions Trophy planned for India into a World T20 occasion, at long last rejecting the eight-group ODI competition, the unique circumstance and importance of which has been addressed more than once. Toward the finish of its five-day executive gathering, ICC Chief Executive Dave Richardson said the worldwide body has “consistently concurred” that the 2021 meet in India would now be a 16-group occasion in the most brief arrangement. Richardson’s declaration implied that BCCI delegate Amitabh Chaudhary likewise voted for the change after the underlying resistance to the move.
This implies just for the second time ever, two ICC World T20 occasions will occur in two years – the 2020 version in Australia and the 2021 release in India. The first occasion when it happened was 2009 (England) and 2010 (West Indies).
“The 2021 Champions Trophy in India will now change to World T20. It fits into our procedure of developing the diversion,” Richardson said today at a media gathering toward the finish of the gathering.
There will be a 2019 and 2023 ODI World Cup, successfully rejecting the very idea of Champions Trophy, a competition which was portrayed as superfluous by a few pundits given the nearness of an undeniable quadrennial World Cup.

However Richardson’s method of reasoning behind the progressions were conflicting in nature.
At the point when gotten some information about shielding longer arrangements yet then is expanding money rich T20, he contemplated; “I don’t concur with that it’s conflicting. At last we will wind up with most extreme of 12 Test groups.”
“The Champions Trophy in a way was excessively comparable, making it impossible to the World Cup, dependably very hard to separate. Why you are having a World Cup and after that a Champions Trophy? It was troublesome.
“What’s more, bear in mind a 13-group ODI class is a colossal advance in ensuring the 50 over organization has considerably more setting going ahead,” the previous Proteas guardian said.
Whenever inquired as to whether the 50-over World Cup and Champions Trophy appeared to be comparable, at that point how extraordinary would be the World T20 in 2020 and 2021, Richardson called the circumstance “somewhat terrible”.
“Lamentably that is a result of the timetable how it functions. There would not have been an alternative I assume of moving the T20 into 2022.
“Yet, going ahead later on, like clockwork World T20, at regular intervals the World Cup and keep in mind the ODI League developing to every World Cup,” he closed.
