    ICC defines various official forms of the game

    The ICC faced a lot of criticism in 2005 over a couple of fiascos related to giving games official status. First, a one-dayer played between an ICC XI and an Asian XI to raise funds for the victims of the December 26 2004 tsunami in the Indian Ocean was declared an official one-day international. Then it announced that the Super Series one-dayers and lone test match were officially granted one-day international and test match status.

    The ICC has now come up with its rules to define the circumstances under which games would be considered official. You can read the complete definitions here.

    My reading of the clauses is that they rule out ICC-XI v [insert continent name]-XI games being declared official tests or one-dayers. Obviously these decisions don't alter the status provided to the games I mentioned above. But it's a start nevertheless.
