    I'd love it too but I don't think that model is workable atm.

    The ICC isn't involved in the TV rights for bilateral series. Even if they all entered into an agreement with all the boards to give all rights to the ICC, I don't know how they're going to be able to come to an agreement on the distribution of that revenue when they can't even agree on the revenue from ICC events.

    I mean, it's still a good idea from a fans perspective even though it's probably never going to happen

    More money is to be made showing ads on the telly for one day and a bit than there is to be made showing ads for one day.

    Logistics would be hard with a very casual workforce at most of the games.

    But for a tournament of say 3 weeks duration, you kinda hire people for 3 weeks anyway right? And you have a game pretty much every day.

    I'm guessing they outsource most functions to security firms and the like. Costs would go up a fair bit if you want them on standby, because you'd probably have to pay them for the reserve day whether it goes ahead or not.

    I am sure package deals can be worked out and in any case, its pocket change for the ICC to ensure this.

    Yes, a game, not 2. If you need to ensure cover you need to pay people for 2 days work for each game, pretty much doubling the costs.

    Another question is which form of reserve day play should be preferred?

    - One where the game is continued in the 2nd day from where it was left on the 1st? This is what happened in India vs. England group match in 1999 world cup.

    - One where the match starts afresh on the 2nd day? This is what happened in India vs. Sri Lanka final of champions trophy 2002.
