Idiotic demands are killing Test cricket
A Test match scheduled to be held over five days was won by our team in three days and one hour.
The controlling body is claiming an undisclosed amount from the captain and the team for revenue lost for not completing the full five days.
This is idiotic and on a par with the money taken from the Test team for a slow over rate.
Surely rules are rules, but flexibility must prevail. Twenty wickets were taken to win this game ... think of the extra time this takes, which is now irrelevant.
Test cricket is struggling to survive against other formats of the game and we have to stomach this illogical approach.
Catch a wake-up, umpires or whoever is in charge, before this leads to the death of Test cricket!
