These were among the various decisions taken at the conclusion of the ICC Annual Conference here Saturday, reports CMC.
In addition to this, between 2015 and 2023, the ICC will stage 18 events, including two ICC Cricket World Cup Tournaments, two ICC World Test Championships, two ICC World Twenty20 events, three ICC Women's World Cups, three ICC Under-19 Cricket World Cups, two ICC Women's World Twenty20 and four qualifying tournaments.
"We are delighted to confirm the exciting schedule of events through to 2023," said ICC chief executive David Richardson.
"The ICC Champions Trophy in England and Wales was highly acclaimed and appreciated by all. However, the principle of one pinnacle global event for each of the three formats over a four-year cycle is a good one and, as such, the ICC Board has agreed to replace the Champions Trophy with the ICC World Test Championship.
"Now that the ICC World Test Championship has been confirmed, we'll work on the playing conditions and qualification criteria, and will submit these to the ICC Board for approval in due course."
