Sharjeel Khan sixes vs Ireland, 1st ODI

There is a lot of talks abut in cricket. there are three formats of this game and there is no doubt that the toughest of them all is the test format. But t the same time this is the rarest format in terms of yearly matches. ICC has to increase the number of test games because the excessive number of T20 format is damaging the class of test cricket. now we don’t see much of a class test player.there a few but then they age that the don’t play T20 cricket. One should keep in mind that the challenges in test cricket for a player are the real ones. As a batsman, if you hit a quick 20 or 30 in a T20 format that means you have don’t your job while in test cricket this performance is regarded as a really poor one.

The number of test matches played in a year are nothing as compared to those of T20 format. This is something which the ICC has to figure out about.
