Test and ODI leagues confirmed by ICC boss Dave Richardson
Joe Root's side could also be involved in four-day Test matches in new proposals accepted by the International Cricket Council at its board meeting in Auckland, New Zealand.
The Test championship embraced by ICC is set to be a nine-team affair which will include three away and as many home series in two years for each team. 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.
What is the Test championship?
The teams will be required to play at least two Tests while it can be expanded to five Tests in a series as well.
"For five days you have to graft it out".
In other decisions taken, Zimbabwe was confirmed as the host for the ICC Cricket World Cup Qualifier and the tournament will be played in March next year.
'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.
Cricket Australia chief executive James Sutherland believes that the World Test Championships from 2019 will not undermine the traditional marquee series like the Ashes.
The ICC is now in the process of drawing up a set of playing conditions for four-day Test matches, and those are expected to implemented for Boxing Day in PE.
Richardson said: "The trial is exactly that, a trial, just in the same way day-night Tests and technology have been trialled by members".
