ICC World Test Championship logo revealed in Abu Dhabi

The International Cricket Council (ICC)'s chief executive David Richardson on Saturday announced that the pathway to the ICC World Test Championship had begun with the revealing of the event brand logo.

The International Cricket Council has launched the 2017 World Test Championship, aimed at preserving the primacy of the longer format of the game.

It will be hosted by England and will feature the top four teams in the ICC test rankings, with a total prize money of 10 million US dollars.

The top four ranked teams on December 31, 2016 – the cut-off date set by the International Cricket Council (ICC) - will play the three-match Test championship between the first and third weeks of June 2017. There will be two semi-finals and the winners will play the final. The Grand Finale of this Test cricket tournament is scheduled to be held at the “Coliseum of Cricket”, the Lord's Cricket Ground.

After the Champions League cricket tournament which was held this year, the International Cricket Council (ICC) decided to hold a Test cricket world championship tournament as well.
