Four-day Tests - Newspaper

Sri Lankan head coach Mickey Arthur backs 5-day Tests

The former opener admitted that the T-20 game appealed to him as he captained India in their first ever T-20I in 2006 in South Africa and was part of India's World T-20 winning team in 2007.

The ICC will consider the proposal to make test cricket four-day at its March Cricket Committee meeting. Sehwag hailed Ganguly as the boss of Indian cricket as a captain as well as the BCCI president. "But five-day Test cricket is romance", Sehwag said while delivering the seventh Mansoor Ali Khan Pataudi Lecture at the BCCI Awards.

Both the captain and the head coach of the team have made it clear that they want the traditional format to not lose its sheen by turning from a five-day affair into one of four days.

"Innovations like names in jerseys and pink ball Tests are fine".

"Chaar din ki chandni hoti hai, Test match nahi.Jal ki machli jal main hi acchi hai, bahar nikaloge toh mar jaegi", he said in his inimitable style. A BCCI official told IANS that the board will discuss the matter with Cricket Australia and the England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB).

Every White House - Republican and Democratic - has held regular White House briefings, most every day. Spicer's briefings even grew to become the topic of skits on Saturday Evening Dwell .

The opener had a very strong opinion on the matter and believed that small changes and innovations in the game are fine but test cricket is still relevant, the way it is.

"See, it is only right that you discuss these matters and we will do the same with CA, ECB, and Cricket South Africa". They feel that Test cricket remains the game's best format and correctly point out that it showcases a team's true calibre, its resilience, patience and consistency over the course of the five-day period. It might be an option for the lower-ranked teams, but not when two big teams clash. One can be a normal red ball practice game and then, a pink ball practice game before the pink Test. "It's the BCCI's responsibility also to ensure that awareness starts from the under-16 and under-19 levels", said Sehwag. "We see a lot of excitement in the Tests on the fifth day when wicket gets deteriorated and bowlers get the upper hand". He changed how we played Test cricket.

The ICC's cricket committee, now chaired by Anil Kumble, is set to meet in March to discuss the proposals - which could free up considerable room in cricket's crowded worldwide schedule - before putting their recommendations to the executive body.

"If you play well, money will follow (you)".
