Warning over end­ing five-day Test cricket

The Daily Telegraph - - Front page -

Cricket chiefs have been warned they would risk the fi­nan­cial and sport­ing fu­ture of the Test for­mat by re­duc­ing matches to four days. The Eng­land and Wales Cricket Board sup­ports a plan to scrap five-day Tests, in­clud­ing the Ashes. The plan is due to be dis­cussed by the In­ter­na­tional Cricket Coun­cil this year, but has been crit­i­cised by English clubs who rely on five-day sell-outs to off­set losses from fall­ing at­ten­dances at county level, with the ECB ac­cused of fail­ing to con­sult them.
