They’ve lost 6 out of 22 home series over a decadeI think most of the forum wants a contest not to see teams give up on foreign soil most of the time.
You seem to be clinging on to the exception of the status quo where teams pull out the odd win once in a blue moon. Then you use that miracle win as justification for why no one should tinker with test cricket.
Like I said mate, if I line up fifty balls on one side of a football field and kick them probably one's going to make it in the goal.
At some stage Sri Lanka were always going to fluke a win like they did in SA last year but that one fluke came amid decades of rubbish results overseas and now they struggle at home pretty much.
Why do open minded progressives like me and some others here frighten you? I'm trying to get tests back on track by promoting suggestions to improve the contest and the spectacle.
I'm using facts to justify my argument and I'm keeping my posts as emotion free as possible. If the health of the game is so good right now why are the boards around the world having these exact same discussions too?
You still have literally given no reason as to why excluding 8 teams from playing the other 4 would be good for test cricket.
Who gives a f*** about the spectacle of its the same teams putting it on every two months
I use the odd win as proof that it can happen. If steps are taken to improve those sides, rather than exclude them and let them stagnate, the spectacle becomes better with the bonus that it involves more sides.
Would people give that much of a f*** about AFL if there were 4 teams that routinely staged brilliant contests but the other 14 teams were abortional and gave nothing?
