“Players still love Test cricket”: Ian Chappell

Former Australia cricketer Ian Chappell believes that current players on the circuit need to have a say in which format of cricket is providing the best entertainment. He also slammed the various administrators of the game, saying that they should have called for a debate on how cricket’s future will be.

“Cricket has to provide the public with a variety of styles so fans have a choice. However, the players should also have a say in what type of cricket provides the best entertainment, and then it’s up to the administrators to properly sell each product. Long ago cricket’s administrators should have organised an inclusive debate so the game planned properly for its future.”

Chappell also pointed out tha despite T20 being popular, Test cricket is where the heart of young players as well as fans lies.

Chappell went on to slam the view that the mushrooming of franchise T20 leagues around the world shouldn’t mean that Test cricket should be the main sufferer, citing the words of ICC Chairman Greg Barclay. “In an interview earlier this month Barclay said, ‘There’s not a lot we can do’ when asked about the rapid expansion of T20 leagues around the world. In expounding on his theory, Barclay reckoned bilateral cricket would suffer at the hands of the popularity of T20.”
