Richardson said, 'The tournament champions trophy that was supposed to happen in India will now turn into the T20 world cup.

The ODI league will serve as a direct qualification competition for the World Cup and will run from 2020 to 2022.
Meanwhile, Richardson said, "This set of meetings has seen some significant decisions made for the long term good of the game". There has been a sharp increase in the number of T20 leagues seeking Member and ICC approval and the associated ongoing challenge to ensure the best players are playing worldwide cricket. However, players know that Test cricket is the original form of cricket and it must be preserved for the betterment of the game. "But going forward in the future, every two years World T20, every four years the World Cup and don't forget the ODI League building up to each World Cup", he concluded.
