Default Team Rules: Test Cricket?

We have all heard about our new coach's Team Rules for ODI Cricket.

What about Team Rules for Test Cricket? I suggest the following, although its a long time that we'll get to play in Test cricket this year - not before November as per the current FTP.
  • Batsman surviving for 150 balls
  • If one wicket is down, then the above rule becomes "200 balls", two wickets down, and it becomes 250 balls and goes on and on
  • Strategy on how to implement this: Batsman surviving for 300 balls in domestic cricket; however, realistically speaking, our national team players will not get much time to get this into practice, since they'll be busy playing ODI cricket - the Asia Cup, Australia tour, and with the rainy season coming, they won't get too much time to practice at all.

The team rule for test cricket should be: "don't get out"...

very tough team rule.

i think no players should play air born shot.

also some players shold be restricted from cross batted and horizontal bat shots

anyway ............ when we are playing the next test match ????????????????

A good thread...was due 8 years ago....
If Shewag like attacking batsmen can play an innings without going for big pull shot till reaching 325 runs, you tell me what should be the rule for our batsmen (Ash, Aftab etc.).
1) Test cricket should be played test cricket way (run will come, Stick to the wicket)
2) Block to the right ball, hit the loose ball
3) Don't let the opposition know about the weakness (playing outside deliveries, facing too fast deliveries uncomfortably, pull, hook or even cut balls when you can cut them in domestic leagues)
4) 5 days is long time, don't make 5 mins too long. What the point of having two glorious fours back to back deliveries when you can get them in the span of 5 days.
5) Mental Phsychological treatment for focus and indurance. Patience is the key (JO like patience sometimes good..don't kill me)

Play stright as much as possible. Leave anything outside off stump and let the bowler come to you. Stay in the wicket as long as you can while rotate the strike. Try to stay away from high risk high reward shot. Above all, teach them cricket. I think our players have serious lack of knowledge about the game.

I can't believe India were bundled out for 79. Our lowest total against the same bowling attack last month was 119....So much for sehwag, Laxman and co...

On a given day, any team can get bowled out for less than 100. Question is on a good day, can the same batsmen make it count and score big hundreds? This is where the difference is between us and India or any other team. They score 500+ in their good days. We score 250 in our good days.

Agree with all the above points. However, considering our players' average age of 22 and our Selectors' policy of sticking with youngsters OR will try to make a squad for the next World Cup, which is 4-long years away, how about the team rules that I suggested? After all, 22-year-old players are not expected to play (who will never become 26 in 4 years' time because of our selectors' chopping policy) the way you are suggesting.

Rules for selectors (Test match only)

1-Never select a player who is under 23 years of age (Average age should be just above 25)
2-And most importantly he must play atleast 30 to 40 FC match (atleast 5 FC games for BD A team)


Batting
Bat for atleast 4 session's

Bowling and fielding
Attack from ball one. Captain should set attacking field

Play to win

  • If one wicket is down, then the above rule becomes "200 balls", two wickets down, and it becomes 250 balls and goes on and on
So after top 6 batsman goes down within 15 overs, it will be upto the tail to stay 150 + 6*50 = 450 Balls? And when they fails after successfully staying in the wicket 200-250 balls, they will still be blamed publickly by the captain for not following team rule and therefore the turning point/reason behind the humiliating loss?

There is only one team rule for batting.
Every partnership should try to break the previous record at their position.

Every bowler should think of grabbing the man of the test award.
