Melbourne: Cricket Australia chief executive James Sutherland feels that the ongoing series against India could be one of the last five-match rubbers in the ODI format as efforts are on to introduce a global league.
According to a report in 'cricket.com.au', Sutherland has confirmed that if the proposed introduction of a 13-team ODI league goes ahead, then future bilateral ODI series is unlikely to exceed three matches.
However, individual boards are free to chalk out their own bilateral programmes.
"I don't think you'll see any country playing more than three one-day matches in a series in the future," Sutherland said.
"They might intersperse them with some Twenty20 matches as well, but I don't think you'll see many five-match one-day series."
