The future of maiden World Test Championship seems to be doubt because of sponsors and broadcasters.
International Cricket Council (ICC) earlier had announced to organize the inaugural Test Championship in England in 2017. But as sponsors and broadcasters are not interested in the tournament the championship seems to be in doubt.
ICC has earlier informed that only top four teams in the ranking till December 31 3016 will participate in the tournament. But Sponsors and broadcasters says that if India and England won’t be able to participate in the tournament they will have to face big loss form the tournament.
According to them the attraction and value of the event would fall if big teams like India and England won’t be able to book their place in the top four.
ICC though had earlier planned to organize the test championship in 2013 for the first time had postponed because of the reservations of broadcasters.
ICC also announced that the last edition of Champions Trophy played at England was the final one to start the test championship instead of Champions Trophy.
