ICC Champions Trophy:
In 2023 India will host one day international world cup as well as the ICC Champions Trophy in 2021, the Board of Control of Cricket in India (BCCI) confirmed in its Special General Meeting (SGM) on Monday.
India will host newly-promoted Test side Afghanistan for their first-ever Test match, BCCI announced. The dates of the historic Test will be chalked out later, BCCI acting Secretary Amitabh Choudhary announced after a Special General Meeting.
This is the first time India would be hosting an ODI World Cup completely. India has previously co-hosted ODI World Cup on three occasions (1987, 1996 and 2011). India has won the tournament twice (1983 and 2011) since its inception in 1975.
The next FTP cycle at home will include high-profile series against England, South Africa and Australia.
