Ian Chappell wants to change another rule to improve Test cricket


According to Ian Chappell, cricket administrators should take important steps to save Test cricket.

Former Australian cricketer Ian Chappell has given his stand regarding the boundary rule. According to Ian Chappell, the umpire should give boundaries to the batting team only when the ball has gone out of bounds. Not only this, when the fielder has caught the ball before the boundary, then changes should be made in that rule.

According to Ian Chappell, cricket administrators should take important steps to save Test cricket. He also said that after the end of the over, the batsmen should not be given much time to talk and considering the weather, the drinks break time should be kept short. This will save a lot of time. He also said that when the team or player takes the review, they should use it as soon as possible and also reduce the time of review.

In his column for ESPNcricinfo, the former Australian player wrote, ‘Why aren’t boundaries signaled only for balls that hit the rope rather than those that hit a fielder’s legs or hands? The pace of the game is already very low in Test cricket. There is no improvement in it and it is getting slower day by day. It is very important for us to intensify this format further.

Boundary rules should be changed: Ian Chappell

Ian Chappell has appealed that only when the ball goes outside the boundary line, it should be given 6 runs or 4 runs. According to him, in Test cricket, saving or extra one or two runs will bring about any change in the game. According to him, all this is important in limited overs cricket. However, if the rules are changed then the pace of the game will also increase.

Not only this, if in Test cricket we continuously look at catches and other things, it will waste a lot of time. There are many former players who have expressed their views that changes should be made in Test cricket as soon as possible to improve it and for this, all the players and administrators will have to take important steps together.
