New Zealand Cricket delegate Martin Snedden says a deal struck by the International Cricket Council will mean the New Zealand team will continue to play the top teams in world cricket.

The ICC has agreed that England, India and Australia will have greater control over the running of the game.

But in a statement the ICC said other countries will have the opportunity to play the top teams.

Mr Snedden told Morning Report while the details are yet to be worked out, he thinks a good deal will be worked out and he believes that eventually the playing schedule will look much the same as it does at the moment.

He said there is still a bit of work to be done on a financial deal between the cricket countries.
