ICC Wants 4 Day Test Cricket

New Delhi: ICC president David Morgan has come up with a new proposal to reduce Test matches from five to four days as a part of a major overhaul of the game's traditional format.

In an interview given to an Indian magazine, ICC boss said that to save the popularity and image of Test cricket, various experiments, including the suggestion of four-day Test, are being considered.

"I would be very surprised if within a year you haven't seen some significant changes in Test match cricket."

Morgan thinks that it wont be difficult for players to a mental shift to playing from five days to four.

ICC chairman also stressed the need for using special cricket balls and considering day-night Test cricket.

"It would be a pity if Test match cricket - day-night - had to be played with a white ball and therefore coloured clothing." Morgan said.
