The International Cricket Council (ICC) may soon change the history of 142 years by making significant changes in Test cricket. According to a report, the five-day Test cricket will now be four days. According to the report, the meeting may discuss whether the Test match under the Test championship from 2023 is not five but four days. There was an earlier round when Test cricket was a draw, even though five days of play, there was no result. But now usually the result of Test cricket is that it happens many times before five days that Test cricket ends on the third day. Now, there are very few matches that are draw.
In view of this, the ICC is now considering to reduce the Test match from five days to four days. Let us say that the International Cricket Council is going to meet with all the board officials of the world in the year 2020 to consider reducing the day in the Test match. If the Test matches are four days and the matches are played from 2015 to 2023 cricket cycles, 335 days will remain vacant in surat, which will be prized for the ICC or other cricket board. More Test matches can be played in these empty days. If the Test matches are done four days, 98 overs will be thrown instead of 90 in a day. It is understood that South Africa and Zimbabwe have been playing the four-day TestICC had allowed a four-day Test match in 2017 two years ago.
