A Germany v Estonia of Football is equivalent to i.e. South Africa v Fiji of a Cricket match. Hardly any countries play test Cricket no wonder crowds are dimmed with same boring old repeated matches. The coming back to back ashes series will destroy test Cricket.
Well from neutral point of view, no one wants to see a weak team playing 4/5 days of cricket. It's just not interesting. But if teams like Sri lanka can get 3 test series then we should be able to manage atleast 2. But then against atleast Sri lanka have won some tests in the past, we can't even win at home.
