The play a number of matches of various sorts against the host nation. The ICC also organizes competitions that are for several countries at once, including the Cricket World Cup & ICC T20 World Cup.
History of Cricket
There was no formal fabric for international cricket until the early twenty-first century. It had long been traditional for countries, without any interposition from a body such as the ICC, to organize for themselves the various cricket matches. The ICC later obligates the Test-playing nations to play each other in a program of matches over a period of 10 years known as the ICC Future Tours Programme.
International cricket tours
Most Test, One-Day and Twenty20 matches take spot in the form of “tour”. In a tour, one nation travels to another and plays warm-up matches, which may be first-class matches, in opposition to domestic teams such as a county or state teams, a series of Test matches against the host nation, and either a series of One-Day international matches (ODI) and T20 matches against the host nation or a tournament involving the host nation and another touring nation. Tours may compromise Test, ODI, and T20I matches, or just one or two of these formats.
Test series can last from two to six matches, but some tours compromise of only a single Test. Six-match series were usual in the 1970s and early 1980s, with the last six-match series to date taking place in 1997–98 between the West Indies and England. Ashes Test series in England were six-match event between 1981 and 1997, but Australia reverted to five matches in its home series from 1982–83. The most important series last four or five matches, while the smaller important ones last two to three matches. Perpetual trophies include:

Points are awarded for wins, ties, and no results, and some tournaments also award bonus points based on the border of victory. There may be a final match played between the two teams with the most points from the round-robin stage.
