India are scheduled to host play 90 Tests and 166 ODIs in next 8-year

A day after the BCCI announced dates for IPL next season, the ICC on Tuesday virtually left an unofficial window for the cash-rich Twenty20 event, making it possible for players from most nations to participate in it.

The ICC on the third day of its annual conference left gaps in the FTP for most nations during April and May for the eight-year period from 2012-20.

Indian Test Cricket TeamThe FTP, which was approved by the ICC Executive Board on Tuesday on the recommendations of Chief Executives' Committee, contains an official two-week window in September for the Champions League Twenty20 each year and leaves space for an unofficial IPL window in April and May.

Under the new FTP calender, India are scheduled to host Pakistan for a Test series in 2013, the first time after 2007.

But, beyond that, particulars of other series between the two countries were vague with neither the host nation nor the number of games was specified. They would also play 90 Tests and 166 ODIs within the eight-year span.

India also plays fewer Test matches than England and Australia in the 8-year period though the world champions would be the busiest team in ODIs.

The FTP has a clear division among the Test playing countries with England, Australia and India scheduled to play the most Tests, followed by Sri Lanka and South Africa.

England will play 99 matches, Australia 92, Sri Lanka 76 and South Africa will play 74 Tests respectively. They are followed by the West Indies and New Zealand with 66 Tests each and Pakistan 65 followed by Bangladesh 42 and Zimbabwe 41.

The ODIs are more evenly distributed. India will play 89 away ODIs among its 166 matches. Zimbabwe have the fewest at 64, of which 37 are at home. All other countries play between 100-160 games.

In the Twenty20 format, most teams are scheduled to play between 30-55 matches.
