Former Australian captain Mark Taylor has suggested that Test matches should be reduced to four days to save the format.
The pitches in the ongoing four-match Border-Gavaskar Trophy have been under the scanner as the games have finished in less than three days.
Speaking to Wide World of Sports, Taylor said teams can play four-day Tests after three days off.
“It’s time to introduce four-day Tests to save the format. Players like to have three days gap between the games. The reduction will also puts the onus on skippers to be a little bit more adventurous at times.”
He mentioned that high-scoring Tests lead to boring draws. England are playing an attacking form of red-ball cricket, which has made the format interesting.
