Glamorgan are looking into the possibility of swapping their 2013 Test match against New Zealand, for five Champions Trophy games in the same year.

The Champions Trophy takes place every two years and is returning to England in 2013. England hosted the tournament in 2004, where they reached the final, before they were beaten by the West Indies at the Oval.

In 2011 the ECB announced that Glamorgan would host 17 days international cricket over the next five years, which included the New Zealand Test in 2013, and an Ashes Test in 2015.

The county from South Wales are looking into the possibility of the switch as they feel it will be a more exciting proposition for supporters in Wales.

A club statement said: “The opportunity to stage high-profile Champions Trophy matches in Cardiff is an exciting one. It would provide a fascinating range of matches and do much to continue to raise the international standing of Wales as destination for top-class cricket.”

This year Glamorgan will host England’s one-day international on the 24th August against South Africa. The county will also be the location for the domestic Twenty20 finals day the following day.
