Windies to start against India in inaugural World Test Championship

Australia's domestic cricket season will start on September 16 and run until April, opening the door for Steve Smith and David Warner to make a Sheffield Shield final comeback.

The FTP provides clarity and certainty around all bilateral worldwide fixtures and incorporates all three formats of the game.The result of a significant collective effort from the Members, with the support of the ICC, the FTP focuses on bringing more context to bilateral cricket.

In addition to 1987, New Zealand has played tests at the MCG in 1973 and 1980 for a loss and draw respectively, and 26 one-day internationals, including their defeat to Australia in the 2015 World Cup final.

Ireland will play their second Test cricket match against Afghanistan next year, while a Test game against England is also in the pipeline.

Each side will play eight series over two years, home-and-away.

"It's exciting for fans and players to see the new context which is being given to ODI and test cricket", Williamson said in a statement.

At least two Tests are required to constitute an official championship series, while countries will contest three-match ODI series as part of the league that will shape the next World Cup qualification process.

The International Cricket Council (ICC) on Wednesday (June 20) released the Future Tour Programme (FTP) on behalf of its members for the 2018-2023 period.

They let Australia get away on them in the first innings at Brisbane during the last series in 2015, before gaining parity in the draw at Perth and suffering a tight loss in the day-night fixture at Adelaide. "The World Test Championship will get underway next year with the ODI league kicking off in 2020 as part of the qualification towards the ICC Cricket World Cup 2023", Richardson said.

In an effort to provide more context to bilateral series, the nine top-ranked Test sides will feature in the World Test Championship - meaning Ireland, Afghanistan and Zimbabwe miss out.

New Zealand next play tests away against Pakistan in October-November before hosting visits from Sri Lanka, India, and Bangladesh next summer. "Together with other member countries we are confident that this will grow interest in the global game - and our team is very much looking forward to launching the World Test Championship with our 2019 Ashes series in England".

England (eight times), India (six), West Indies (five), South Africa (five), Pakistan (four) and Sri Lanka (two) have all featured since then.

Additionally, the 12 Test playing nations, along with the Netherlands, will participate in the 13-team ODI League, which will run from May 1 2020, to March 31, 2022.
