Three bids were under consideration; one from Zimbabwe, one from the United Arab Emirates and a joint-bid from Ireland and Scotland. Netherlands will host the ICC Women's World Twenty20 Qualifier.

'This means fans around the world can enjoy global cricket knowing every game counts and in the case of the ODI league, it counts towards qualification to the ICC Cricket World Cup'.

The ICC says that in the first edition of the league, starting in 2020, each side will play four home and four away series, each comprising three ODIs. The World Test League Championship final will be contested between the top two teams in England in June 2021.

Richardson said: "The trial is exactly that, a trial, just in the same way day-night Tests and technology have been trialled by members".
