Dubai: Having set the international cricket schedule for the next six years in the Future Tours Programme (FTP), the International Cricket Council will now constitute a Funding and Scheduling Policy Committee (FSPC) to examine and recommend the structure of the international calendar beyond 2012.

``Although the new six-year FTP that began in May provides an excellent framework for international cricket, there is no point in just sitting back and not thinking of the future beyond its duration,'' ICC president Ehsan Mani said in a statement here. `This committee will examine possible structures and funding models for an international programme beyond 2012,'' he added.
