The Daily Telegraph - Business - - Sport - Tim Wigmore

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.
