ECB faces legal battle with Sri Lanka over World Test Championship points after postponement of Test series

  • The ECB face headache if they are unable to reschedule two Test matches  
  • Time is tight with Test matches against India and a ODI series in South Africa 
  • First half of the winter features one-day series against India and T20 World Cup

The ECB could face a legal battle with their Sri Lankan counterparts to determine how the World Test Championship points for their postponed series are allocated, if the two boards are unable to reschedule the two Test matches. 

A potential rearrangement for January 2021 has been mooted, but time is tight with England due in India in the second half of that month for five Tests before six white-ball matches in South Africa. 

The first half of the winter is also packed, with a one-day series against India followed by the T20 World Cup.
