^^ I believe playing matches help your points and winning matches helps your rankings.

^:lol: Clever Rabz bhai!

I really don't want test cricket to die...I think for cricketers this is the format that they really find it challenging and like it as well....

i feel the same as well. But for cricket to gain more following, I dont think test cricket is the best option because the dullness, and possibility of draws, all which are un-ideal for fans to follow.

Most will disagree, but I think test cricket has no future in the SC. Esp. with the lack of interest, un-ideal weather throughout the year, growing interest towards T20. And so on. BUt from my point of view test cricket never was the ideal format for the SC. These are 3rd world nations and the people cant afford to go onto watching mundane cricket matches, in such scorching heat and not to mention the possibilty of a washout

If we don't play Test, how could we get points?

BCB is at fault here -

I disagree. If the scheduling is done right i.e. Tests are not hosted during the monsoon, then it is not likely that matches will be rained off. Washouts are more common in places like England, Ireland or the West Indies and even then you still see great turnouts to Test matches.

Those who say Test cricket will die out are like those people who said symphony orchestras and classical music will die out. Test cricket, unlike the other two formats, embodies a certain culture that still holds a great attraction for those nurtured within it. Test cricket is all about context: not only sporting achievements and rivalries but also the ambiance of cricket grounds, white kits, cherished felt caps, long drawn out emotions and so on and so forth. To appreciate Test cricket, one has to appreciate its legacy at the same time. It's never just about the 22 players on the ground.

That's why in England and Australia, many people, both young and old, still swear by Test cricket and will watch little else. It's why they still turn out in droves despite soaring prices and unpredictable play. Now whether such an ethos can be exported is another matter...

It is interesting for us! We can start from the opening like inaugaral Test match.

Should be a firm kick in BCB's rear to schedule tests against anyone anywhere. Instaed of jerking off to whatever limited overs tournament is months away.

We have already been defeated by Zimbabwe at their home & next series against them April, 2013 is also at their home.


New Zealand also a better team so it is a little hope.
