ICC consider being a drastic change in the international test cricket format, the world governing body of cricket looking to trim it.
With the intense and the rise of T20 cricket, test cricket has not been able to hold people’s attention except for the hardcore fans, who romanticize the traditional format.
Moreover, with the increasing number of matches in a calendar year, the players have to go through an intense workload. Thus, ICC has decided to bring changes into the test cricket format.
It has been reported that the world governing body of cricket is considering trimming down the length of a match from 5 days to 4 days for the 2023-2031 cycle.
Although, there are several reasons behind taking this step. First of all, nowadays test matches do not go beyond the third and the fourth day of the match and the last day in schedule often goes waste.
In the previous era, there were many matches which ended u in draws even after playing all 5 days. But cricket has evolved over the years and in result this year only three test matches were drawn and all three were affected by rain.
