Unless top teams take on each other, mostly, the Test matches are ending as a one-sided affair. Even when the top teams lock horns, the pitch is playing an integral role in yielding the result. Meanwhile, the former Australian leg-spinner, Shane Warne makes his voice on the survival of the Test cricket. He expressed his concern on the longer version of the game and batted for the competitive pitches. The legendary spinner also wants every country in the world to use Duke balls to bring bowlers into the game.
Test cricket is the best form of the game – Shane Warne
The former Australian took the series between England and India as the example for his explanation. He added the Test series was the finest exhibition to show what Duke ball can offer to the game.
Further, he added saying the ball has dominated the game which gave an excellent entertainment for the fans. He went on to say the ball will do the trick even if the flat pitch was on offer.
”I am worried about the future of Test cricket. It’s the best form of the game in my opinion. Have a look at this summer what happened between India and England – it was a fantastic series to watch. I think the ball dominated the match, created great Test cricket and fun Test cricket. It was also captivating Test cricket,” Shane Warne said.
“If we could use that Duke ball all over the world it would be fantastic because it always seems to do something when the wickets are flat, so hopefully the governing body will have a look at that,” he added while speaking to Sky Sports.
However, it seems like Shane Warne has got the valid point in his kitty to raise his concern for the Duke balls. With the Test Cricket hitting the decreasing bar, trying Duke ball might help the format to get back its mojo.
