A Test Championship playoff along with ODI and Twenty20 league structures may be adopted by member countries at the next ICC Board meeting in October, after the two-tier Test system was abandoned this week.Alternate plans to keep afloat bilateral cricket were the main focus for the chief executives of member countries, who met in Dubai earlier this week for a two-day workshop where support for the two-tier model collapsed under BCCI pressure.According to Haroon Lorgat, CEO of Cricket South Africa and former ICC CEO, all boards are trying to develop context for international cricket, with the best solution being a Test Championship. That was the belief of many bearing in mind that everyone supports the primacy of international cricket, Lorgat told ESPNcricinfo.Lorgat said discussions will continue with the next round of ICC meetings when the Chief Executives Committee (CEC) and the Board would formally meet in Cape Town in the second week of October. What is clear is that a few members do not support the two-tier system, so we will need to find another way to develop a Test champion using the existing rankings table.Lorgat also said it was the members, and not the ICC, that had taken responsibility to ensure bilateral cricket was in good health. Media have got it wrong. Bilateral cricket is not the responsibility of the ICC. They are facilitating a process to assist the member countries to sustain fan interest by developing context.During his ICC tenure, Lorgat was a firm supporter of a World Test Championship to create context, and he believes it is needed to ensure that fans interest in bilateral cricket is sustained. The best we might be able to do now is to build a championship model using the existing Test-rankings table to play a final between the top two teams, say every two years. Although not a perfect outcome, it could find support among all members. Doing nothing is not an option.A longer cycle, in which all teams played each other over four years, has been deemed too hard to follow. Overall it is now a pretty compelling model for all countries. There is very strong alignment on the structure and context for the three formats, and the need for change and improvement, a representative from an influential board said.For the two-tier model to be implemented, it was necessary that at least seven out of the 10 members back the proposal. Despite six member boards (Australia, England, South Africa, New Zealand, Pakistan and West Indies) being in its favour, the two-tier model was shelved. Although no formal voting process took place, four members - India, Bangladesh, Sri Lanka and Zimbabwe - were against it.You need seven to support any change, to make it more sensible, a CEO who was present at the Dubai workshop, said. You dont have India. You dont have Bangladesh. You dont have Sri Lanka. That is three strong playing cricket countries. Zimbabwe was fourth. West Indies in principle were supportive of it. So two-tier wont work.But it is difficult to understand why the smaller countries would not support the two-tier structure considering it would allow them guaranteed matches and more exposure. In the end, emotion, history and culture, and the status hit that comes with losing a position in the top tier, rather than logic, were the reasons behind the proposed two-tier concept in Test cricket failing to take off, a CEO said. Some of the countries who dont want to end up in the second division, if that is how they see it, they dont support it. It is very simple: it is because of the stature of not being in the top tier [of seven nations]. It is the fear of being in the second division [bottom five]. That is all it is about.Even if you are not guaranteed fixtures in the current system, they are happy to be in one division. So they rather not play cricket than being in a two-tier structure where you will be guaranteed cricket. There is no logic in that. In this compromised version that seems to be finding favour, all the 10 members will be in one division.ESPNcricinfo understands Bangladesh and Zimbabwe in particular declined the chance of playing more Test cricket in order to avoid being tarred with second-division status. A representative present in Dubai during the workshop pointed out that not even a bucket of money could divert the stance of the smaller countries as they remained against the two-tier model.According to Lorgat, the boards in favour of the two-tier structure tried to impress the advantage of such a model. We tried to motivate why a two-tier league would be the best way to sustain and generate fan interest. It did not find favour with some members.But Lorgat pointed out all 10 members are working hard to find a road map that would benefit bilateral cricket for every board. It is not about who supports or who doesnt. Everybody accepts that bilateral cricket needs attention. Some do not support a two-tier Test Championship that would allow for promotion and relegation and also include Associates members. But if that doesnt find favour, then we need to find another model that works.One possible positive to emerge out of the two-tier fallout, another CEO said, could be the weaker countries could once again partake off the financial gains which would have been channelled mainly to the Big Three. It is very encouraging to hear the BCCI talking about supporting the smaller members. If a two-tier system affects smaller countries and the BCCI does not want this, then it is a signal that the funding that was channelled to the Big Three at the expense of the smaller countries would also come back.

When Washington State plays at Colorado on Saturday, it will be battle of Pac-12 division leaders.Nobody saw that coming.The 12th-ranked Buffaloes (8-2, 6-1 Pac-12) are the most surprising team in the country, considering they were picked to finish last in the Pac-12 South in a vote of league media and had only five conference victories in their first five seasons in the league.Washington State (8-2, 7-0) opened the season with a home loss to lower-division Eastern Washington and a defeat at Boise State. The Cougars have since ripped off eight consecutive victories -- their longest streak since 1930 and the second-longest streak in the nation behind Alabama (22).Two years ago, Colorado and Washington State finished last in their respective divisions. Now, this game -- kicking off at 3:30 p.m. ET from Boulder, Colo. (Fox TV) -- is the biggest in the Pac-12.Isnt that great, said Colorado coach Mike MacIntyre.It is exciting for both teams. It is exciting for Washington State and Mike Leach and it is exciting for the University of Colorado and our staff. I am so excited for our fans. This is a special time in Colorado football.Colorado is one game up in the loss column on USC and Utah, the only other teams that can win the South.The Buffaloes likely have to win their final two games against ranked opponents to take the title and advance to the conference championship game. The Buffs finish the regular season at home against No. 11 Utah.Washington States division-tile hopes will likely come down to next weeks Apple Cup game against seventh-ranked Washington, which is one game back of the Cougars. WSU will have to navigate its tough final two regular-season games without senior wide receiver River Cracraft.His college career is over after he tore his left ACL in last weeks 56-21 win over California. He and fellow senior Gabe Marks are the only duo in Pac-12 history to each have 200 career catches at the same time.Hes a great player, coach Mike Leach said of Cracraft. He contributed early in his career, which I thought was impressive.Washington State junior quarterback Luke Falk is second nationally with 361.0 passing yards per game, directiing Leachs Air Raid attack.dddddddddddd. Falk last week set a school record with his 23rd career 300-yard game.Marks set the Pac-12 career receptions record last week; he has 295.Colorado counters with the best pass defense in the Pac-12, allowing 176.9 yards per game through the air. Opponents are completing just 50.9 percent of their passes, the best mark in the conference.But this WSU team also has balance, able to run the ball when the opportunity presents itself. Behind Gerard Wicks (career-high 128 yards) and James Williams (80 yards), the Cougars ran for 254 yards on 31 carries last week against Cal, their highest total in Leachs five seasons as head coach.It helps a lot, Marks said of the run game.I dont like to admit it sometimes, because the run game affects my life. But it has affected my life in a good way now. Back in the day, wed just run it and nothing would get done, and it was like dont run it. Just throw me the ball. ...Balance is good. Weve got some good balance right now.Colorado is solid and balanced, too.Senior Sefo Liufau, who set a school record last week with his 36th career start at quarterback, rarely makes a killer mistake. He recently had a streak of 152 passes without an interception.The Buffs can run the ball (204.7 yards per game) behind tailback Phillip Lindsay. They can stop the run (131.5 yards per game).They have forced a turnover in a national-best 23 consecutive games and are tied for 18th in turnover margin at 0.7 per game.Bottom line: They Buffs dont beat themselves. Their only losses this season came at Michigan (they were leading when Liufau left with an injury) and at USC.And, so, Saturday will mark the biggest home game of Colorados tenure in the Pac-12.Giving people something to believe in has always been a part of this season, wide receiver Shay Fields said on the teams website. Folsom the last couple of years hasnt been that packed. But since we won those first three, the fans have been outstanding. Theyve gotten the feeling that CU is back and thats exciting. ' ' '
