MCC not in favour of 4-day Tests

Jan 15, 2020 13:16 IST

The influential Marylebone Cricket Club which is the custodian of the laws of the game has stressed that Test matches should be for 5 days instead of 4. With recent debates and discussions around the possibility of switching to 4-day matches, the MCC said that there might be merits in the 4-day game but Test cricket should be continued with the 5-day format. Interestingly, the ICC had allowed 4-day Tests twice in 2017 but are not part of the ongoing World Test Championship.
