Test cricket in reverse

by KhufiaBaaz

Going by the epic finishes recent tests played in India have had, the BCCI is in all earnest looking at playing the fifth day first, followed by the fourth, third and so on. The argument is clear – "anyway, it is only the die-hard test cricket fans that turn their TVs on the first few days…if we give the masses a result on the first day itself (the 5th) then we will introduce more people to the joys of tests. As for the toss, that will take place on the fifth day (the 1st)." Cynics pointed out that such a format is undoable, to which a BCCI office bearer called for restraint, “bear with us please sir”. Still early days, but interesting times ahead. Btw the headline for this post should read as Reverse in Cricket Test.
