IND vs AUS 3rd Test
Australia dominated from the start at Indore.

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.
