Former Australian player Ian Chappell is very worried that the future of Test cricket is now in danger due to T20 cricket. He has appealed to all the boards and cricketers that they should take important steps together and save Test cricket.

Let us tell you that for quite some time now many former players have been presenting their views regarding Test cricket. Many people believe that because of T20 cricket, there is a decline in Test cricket. There are many players who want to play in franchise league cricket but find themselves unavailable in Test cricket for the national team.

Writing his column in ESPNcricinfo, Ian Chappell wrote, ‘It is no secret that Test cricket is becoming an endangered species. The administrator is impressed by the popularity of T20 and its huge financial rewards. T20 league is rising rapidly and Test cricket is in decline.

The pace of the game of Test cricket is low. It is getting slower every day and nothing is being done to make matters better. On one hand, Ben Stokes is making better efforts to promote Test cricket, while nothing like this is being seen from the administrators.

When was the last time it was seen that in Test cricket, all the overs were bowled in the stipulated time in a day?: Ian Chappell

Ian Chappell further wrote, ‘When was the last time it was seen that in a day game of Test cricket, all the overs were completed in the regular time. Test cricket is the game played for the longest time and people do not want to watch it anymore. Many people are bored with this format.

If cricket has to be improved, players and fans will have to partner and implement new rules. If this is not done then Test cricket will completely end and this is not a good thing.
