New Delhi. At present, the three-Test series between New Zealand and England is going on. In the first match of the series, England’s first innings was bundled out for 141 runs. Not even a single time did the English batsmen play Test cricket. In such a situation, ICC chief Greg Barkley is seeing the future of Test cricket in danger. He has cautioned that Test matches may be reduced in future.

Barkley, who completed his two-year term in December this year, has blamed the domestic franchise league for this. Barkley revealed that it has become difficult to handle bilateral series between Test cricket and franchise leagues. Barkley told the BBC: “The growing number of domestic leagues are forcing some things back and what is being squeezed in the middle is bilateral cricket, and so we are trying to fit everything in.”

The ICC chief said, “In the future, those countries may not get as many matches as they are expecting. And they will not get exposure, especially against India and to a lesser extent Australia and England. So we will see a squeeze. 10 In 15 years’ time, I still see Test cricket as an integral part of the game. It may even come down to it.

The ICC chief said that the smaller countries will get to play Test matches very less, while the big three countries, India, England and Australia, will not make any difference. He also commented that it is the shortest format of the game which is attracting fans and money to cricket and it will be very important in future. Even broadcasters will be more interested in smaller forms of the game.

Barclay said, “Some countries may have to make room and play less Test cricket. Some of the smaller full members have to accept that they can’t play as much Test cricket as they wanted, so we can see a reduction in that.” Will be able to play four or five matches a year – while England, Australia and India will be playing Test cricket the same way they are playing it now. If you look strategically at how cricket is going, there is no point in that. There is no doubt that white-ball cricket is shaping the future. This is the sport that is demanded by fans, this is where broadcasters are putting their resources, this is what is driving the money.”
