One-day Super League How it will work ahead of 2023 World Cup
The new one-day international Super League begins with England’s series against Ireland.
The top 13 nations – the 12 Full Members plus World Cricket League Championship winners Holland – will each play eight series of three ODIs against each other over two years, though Covid-19 may push that into 2023. That means that all 13 countries will play 24 ODIs in the league. Each win is worth 10 points, with five each for a tie or a game being abandoned. The ICC has decided against a finals series.
The top seven – plus hosts India – will reach the 2023 World Cup. The remaining teams will then enter a final qualification tournament with leading Associate countries. The bottom-ranked team out of the 13 could be relegated to WCL Division Two, with the winners of that tournament – which includes Scotland – being promoted, with details still being finalised.
