Virender Sehwag said- In the last five years, only 13% out of 223 i.e. 31 Test draws were made.
'There are more day-night tests for the thrill, so that spectators reach the stadium in greater numbers'
Dainik BhaskarJan 14, 2020, 06:12 PM IST Sports Desk. Former Indian cricketer Virender Sehwag said on Tuesday that there should be no change in Test cricket at all. He was present at the BCCI's honor ceremony 'Naman' on Sunday. He said- Today there is talk of doing the test for four days, but it will not be right to tamper with this format. Sehwag said, "There is four days of moonlight, not a test match. Yes, you can definitely take the test to the moon. There should be more day-night test for the thrill, so that the spectators reach the stadium in greater numbers. ”
Sehwag said, "Test cricket is a 143-year-old man. It has a soul and it should not be young. If you have to make changes, then it should be done in five days. One day should not be reduced. In the last five years, only 13% out of 223 i.e. 31 Test draws were done. Whereas in 10 years there were 83 draws in 433, which is 19%. "
Many cricket veterans also rejected the four-day Test
The former opener said – If you want to make the test exciting, then you can also bring power play like ODI and T20. He jokingly said that if the test is done for four days, the commentators will suffer the most. They will get less one day's earnings. Recently, the ICC had proposed the Test for four days. This was denied by almost all cricketing veterans.
'Players must not speak abusive language on the field'
Sehwag said, "Players should not use abusive language on the field. It has a bad effect on children watching cricket. "On the fire in Australia's jungles, Sehwag said," Many people in Australia have lost their lives in the wildfires. My prayers are with all of you, my countrymen. "
