Melbourne, June 17 (ANI): International Cricket Council CEO Haroon Lorgat has said that he has an open mind about Cricket Australia's trial of split-innings one-dayers, but insists the future of the format hinges on the success or failure of next year's World Cup on the subcontinent.

"We will see how the 2011 event unfolds. I'm very confident that you will see an excellent World Cup, which means we wouldn't tamper with it for 2015, but it's something we will be open-minded about," The Age quoted Lorgat as telling the cricket web site Cricinfo.

"Let's see how the domestic trials go, let's see how the World Cup goes, and then we can take a view on it," he added.

"At international level, I don't hold the view that the format is as challenged as it is at domestic level," he said.

"I'm very keen to see how it all unfolds in Australia," he added.

Though in some quarters there is a view that the one-day 50-over format should undergo a change, national selector Merv Hughes doesn't think it needs changing at all. (ANI)
