The 2020–23 ICC Men's Cricket World Cup Super League[1][2] is the ongoing inaugural edition of the ICC Cricket World Cup Super League, a One Day International (ODI) league.[3] The league is taking place from July 2020 to March 2023,[4] and serves as part of the 2023 Cricket World Cup qualification process.[5]

It features thirteen teams, the twelve Full Members of the International Cricket Council (ICC), and the Netherlands, who won the 2015–17 ICC World Cricket League Championship to qualify for this competition.[6] Each team will play an ODI series against eight of the other twelve teams, four series at home and four away. Each series consists of three ODIs.[7]

The COVID-19 pandemic affected the start of the league, with several series of matches being postponed. In April 2020, following a Chief Executives' meeting, the ICC announced that it would look at the future of the league at a later date, once there is a better understanding of the impact of the pandemic on cricket.[8][9] The series between England and Ireland, starting 30 July 2020, were the first matches of the league.[10][11]

Following a trial that started in December 2019,[12] the ICC announced the use of technology to monitor front-foot no-balls for all matches in the Super League.[13] The third umpire called the front-foot no-balls, communicating this with the on-field umpires.[14]

Teams and qualification pathway

Thirteen teams qualified:

For the World Cup, the hosts (India), and the top seven sides thereafter, will qualify automatically. The remaining five teams will play in a qualifying event—the 2022 Cricket World Cup Qualifier—along with five Associate sides, from which two sides will go through to the World Cup.[16]

The top twelve teams in this Super League remain in the Super League for the next World Cup cycle. The 13th ranked team in this Super League and the champions of the 2019–22 ICC Cricket World Cup League 2 will take part in World Cup Qualifier, where the better team will take the 13th spot in the next Super League while the team ranked lower will play in the next League 2.[17][18]

Format

The tournament is a partial round-robin league and will be played over two years. Each team will play eight other opponents, four at home and four away, in series consisting of three ODI matches. This means that a given team will not face all other opponents in their group, but all teams will play the same number of matches ( i.e., 12 matches at home and 12 matches away).[19]

Points are awarded as follows:[19]

  • Win – 10 points
  • No result or abandoned – 5 points
  • Loss – 0 points
  1. If a match is abandoned and the pitch or outfield is declared unfit by the ICC Pitch and Outfield Monitoring Process, then the match will be awarded to the visiting team.[19]
  2. A team that is behind the required over-rate at the end of a match will have one competition point deducted for each over it is behind.[19]
  3. Tied matches will be decided by a Super Over. If a Super Over is a tie, subsequent Super Overs shall be played until there is a winner.[20]

Schedule

The match schedule was announced by the ICC on 20 June 2018 as part of the 2018–23 ICC Future Tours Programme.[21][22]

COVID-19 pandemic

The COVID-19 pandemic began before the start of the league, which was originally scheduled for May 2020 to March 2022, and resulted in no international cricket being played from March to July 2020.[23] All Super League fixtures scheduled for 2020 were postponed or rescheduled with considerations for pandemic-related restrictions.[24] Fixtures after also had to be reconsidered to account for the disruptions to the schedule.[25]

Bangladesh's matches against Ireland were postponed on 21 March 2020.[26] In April 2020, South Africa's tour to Sri Lanka was postponed.[27] The same month, Pakistan's tour of the Netherlands and the West Indies tour of the Netherlands were both postponed, after the Dutch government banned all events in the country, both sports and cultural, until 1 September 2020.[28] On 15 May 2020, Cricket Ireland confirmed that the tour by New Zealand had also been postponed.[29] On 12 June 2020, the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) confirmed that it had called off their tours to Zimbabwe and Sri Lanka.[30] On 30 June, Cricket Australia confirmed that their planned home series against Zimbabwe had also been postponed due to the virus.[31][32] New Zealand's tour of the West Indies was postponed, after the fixtures clashed with the West Indies rescheduled tour to England.[33][34] In August 2020, the Netherland's tour of the Zimbabwe was cancelled due to the pandemic.[35][36]

The first matches of the Super League were Ireland's 3-match ODI series in England which were originally scheduled for September 2020 but brought forward to July and August with all three matches taking place in Southampton.[37][38][39] Australia's tour of England, which was originally to take place in July 2020, was postponed and took place in September 2020.[40] England's tour of South Africa was postponed following an outbreak of COVID-19 among members of both teams and the hotel staff.[41]

In December, the ICC rescheduled the postponed series to a new schedule which would end in March 2023.[4]
