The ICC’s proposal to hold regular four-day tests got a big shock. Sourav Ganguly, the head of the most influential cricket board in the cricket world, is against that four-day Test.
The ICC has proposed a four-day Test to host more matches in the crowded cricket schedule. The ICC, the governing body of world cricket, wants to implement the concept in a new eight-year cycle starting in 2023.
In the meantime, already there have been two four-day tests experimentally organized. In one of South Africa played against Zimbabwe, in the other England and Ireland have met.
However, the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) chief Sourav made it clear that he was not a fan of the four-day Test. “I am not a big fan of the four-day Test,” Sourav said in a video broadcast by the BCCI today. Because most of the matches will not end. The mood of the four-day match will be different. I sincerely believe that there is no point in whimsical about the five-day test. The five-day test is the hardest and the best for me. ‘
There are rumors that one of the best captains in the history of Indian cricket could be selected for the vacant post of ICC chairman. Although he is against the idea of a four-day test, Sourav is in favor of organizing more day and night tests.
