I am not necessarily saying it would happen in this country, but we can’t ‘love Test cricket to death’.“We have to think about how that format remains relevant in an era when the white ball, and certainly Twenty20 is taking over.”England’s director of cricket added on Sky Sports: “The game can work over three forms but you have to limit volume of each. Teams want to play as much cricket as they can, so we need a programme that is compelling.”last_img read more
