T20 – A PYTHON THAT THREATENS TEST CRICKET



The new format in cricket that has made more number of people to sit and watch is T20 cricket. The more number of T20 matches has made people deny watching the traditional Test Cricket. Since the cricket evolved, the test matches are played, but that is facing a decline because of T20 matches. Earlier test matches had a play of six days with one day rest in between the innings. Days after, the rest day was removed and now being played for 5 days. The most famous test series is THE ASHES played between England and Australia which is considered as the ultimate clash between the two nations till date. The another series is BORDER-GAVASKAR trophy between India and Australia which is considered next to that of THE ASHES. Since the test matches are conducted less in number, people may forget or the next generation may not know the traditional test matches. Let’s save test cricket from its decline.
