  • MCC wants Test matches to stay at five days

They applauded Cricket Australia in 2015 for the first day / night test because they believed the concept would help revive the format.

Marylebone Cricket Club (MCC), the custodians of the game's laws, says it wants Tests to continue being played over five days amid calls for matches to be reduced to four days to ease a crammed worldwide calendar and reduce player workload.

Five-day Tests have been set since 1979 and some of the format's most thrilling finishes - including the draw at the Oval which sealed England's historic 2005 Ashes win and the recent win over South Africa in Cape Town - have been played out on the final day.

"The MCC Cricket committee and MCC World Cricket committee have actually recently discussed the issue and though they are able to see some advantages that four-day Test cricket could deliver, both committees think that Test cricket should continue being played over five times".

The International Cricket Council has been under the scanner since it has been announced that the it is contemplating to include four-day Test matches from the 2023 Test Championship. "Given the average test game duration of less than four days, this should be taken seriously in the next eight-year cycle from 2023".
