The 12 Full Members will play a total of 777 international matches between 2023 and 2027, compared to 694 in the current FTP cycle

Despite the rapid rise of T20 leagues around the world, there is an increase in the amount of international cricket scheduled in the new ICC men's Future Tours Programme (FTP) for the next four years. This includes two Border-Gavaskar Test series between Australia and India that will, for the first time in over 30 years, be contested over five Tests.

The ICC released the 2023-27 FTP on Wednesday, in which the 12 Full Members play a total of 777 international matches - 173 Tests, 281 ODIs and 323 T20Is - compared to the 694 games in the current cycle.

The first five-Test Border-Gavaskar series will take place during the 2023-25 World Test Championship cycle, when India tour Australia in the summer of 2024-25. Australia then tour India during the 2025-2027 World Test Championship cycle for five Tests in January-February 2027.

Tri-series between Full Members are also set to make a comeback, with Pakistan hosting New Zealand and South Africa in an ODI tri-series in February 2025, Zimbabwe hosting New Zealand and South Africa for T20Is in July 2025, and Pakistan hosting England and Sri Lanka for an ODI tri-series in October-November 2026.

There is also an extended window for the IPL, during which very little international cricket has been scheduled, in April and May every year between 2023 and 2027. England and Australia have also created windows in August and January, respectively, in their own international schedules, to allow their marquee white-ball players to participate in the Hundred and the BBL.

Only 27 Test matches in 4 years for Pakistan. This is so unfair on players like Babar who will miss out on test matches during his prime playing days. Out of 173 Test matches Pakistan is only getting 27.

Pakistan playing hardly many Tests.

Quite unfair how Ind/Aus get to play 5 Test series as always.

IPL ruining cricket as always. ICC has no backbone to say anything, what a shame. The beautiful game is being ruined before our very eyes.

Pakistan getting less tests than Bangladesh is a real disgrace. When was the last time Bangladesh even won a test match?

"While finalising our Future Tours Programme 2023-2027 in a tight and densely-packed cricket calendar, we have given priority to context, quality, and player workload," PCB chief executive Faisal Hasnain said in a statement. "We have also tried to find an appropriate balance across all the three formats so that these continue to co-exist meaningfully.


"I am sure that our cricket fans will be delighted to know that top-ranked and attractive sides such as Bangladesh, England, New Zealand, South Africa, Sri Lanka and the West Indies will visit Pakistan to compete in matches for the ICC World Test Championship.


"Additionally, Afghanistan, Australia, Ireland and Zimbabwe will also tour Pakistan for the white-ball matches, which means 10 of the 12 ICC Full Members will play cricket in Pakistan during the four-year period. This is exciting."

Can he elaborate on which 'context, quality and player workload' means?

I'm not sure I see it in the meagre amount of games we've organised.
