Default ICC for four-day Tests as part of innovations

The ICC is considering four-day Tests as part of a series of innovations to keep the oldest form of the sport exciting to spectators in the wake of Twenty20's growing popularity.

"The board of the ICC is determined to ensure that Test match cricket is seen as the pinnacle of our great game," ICC president David Morgan told India Today magazine while elaborating on changes needed.

"We need better over-rates, better pitches that give a good balance between bat and ball and we need to consider day-night test match cricket ... the issue is the colour of the ball and the quality of the ball," he said.

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

"Another thought that many people have, that we are examining is whether test match cricket can be played over four days rather than five."

Morgan expected some of the innovations to be introduced within a year.

A very good news. 5 Day test are bit boring. Also, I like Idea of using different color ball in the day night test matches.
