The ICC members have signed off a new Future Tours Programme (FTP) for 2019-2023 that incorporates these changes.

“This provides opportunities for 16 teams to compete at a global level with a sub-regional, regional and global qualification process every two years, giving more regular cricket to more members,” read a statement issued by the governing body.“We are committed to growing the game and T20 is the vehicle through which we’ll do this,” said ICC Chief Executive David Richardson.

The ICC Board also gave green light to all Twenty20 matches between Members being awarded international status along with plans to introduce global rankings in the format.
