Sourav Ganguly reveals “super series” plan with England and Australia

Sourav Ganguly, the administrative head of BCCI, has revealed the inauguration of another ICC tournament from 2021 onwards. With a name of “super series”, the tournament will be based on top 4 nations out of which India, Australia, and England will be prerequisite. The first of its kind will be hosted India and later on the tournament will be scheduled rotation wise.

BCCI is in talks with Cricket Australia and Ganguly’s recent visit to London also indicates that the Indian cricket board is once again trying to diverge the balance of powers in the International Cricket Council. This tournament also contradicts the ICC future tour program if the cricketing body decides to add another limited- over tournament.

When contacted about the BCCI's plans, a CA spokesperson declined to comment. Eddings, however, has previously expressed his reluctance to see the world's major financial powers again separate themselves from the rest of member nations, who depend largely upon revenue from ICC events for their financial health, as had taken place in 2014.

No official announcement has been made on this proposal, however; if all the boards of the 4 nations agree to play the tournament then the cricket world might witness another conflict.
