2015 World Cup will shore up future of ODIs, says Harnden
The 2015 World Cup boss John Harnden has said that the revival in passion for cricket this Ashes summer would help make up for a successful World Cup next year, as well as for the future of one-day cricket.
He said that he believes next year's tournament in Australia and New Zealand will shore up the future of one-day cricket and every nation, including India, has an interest in making it a success, the Sydney Morning Herald reports.
Harnden said that it will be a challenge to set the World Cup games apart from the full calendar of matches that precedes the tournament.
Australia is scheduled to host South Africa for a one-day series early in the season, before playing four Tests against India and a triangular one-day series involving India and England leading into the World Cup, the report added.
