While innovation might be the need of the hour in the game considering the steady decline of Test cricket, but former Pakistan skipper Waqar Younis perhaps went too far when he suggested a beneficial change in the oldest and longest format of the game.

The likes of Virat Kohli, Steven Smith and others have been leaving no stone unturned to make Test cricket interesting with their exceptional batting displays, but the fortunes of the game are on a steady decline, and the empty seats in the stadiums are a proof of it.

The International Cricket Council has taken several steps like the day-night Tests or their recent decision to allow South Africa to host Zimbabwe for a four-day Test to draw the crowd again.

However, the advent and meteoric rise of T20 cricket had somewhat reduced the popularity of Test. At the same time, the shortest format of the game is doing no harm to the ICC’s coffers.

However, many traditionalists believe that T20 cricket is a threat to Test cricket and while the debate is still on, one party came up with another format of the game – T10. The first major 10-over-a-side cricket tournament was recently played in Sharjah and surprisingly drew a good crowd.

And amidst all this, Waqar Younis proposed another new format, which tampers with Test cricket. The bowling legend, on Monday, took to Twitter to share his thoughts, writing:

“To feed my love of Test cricket and to build on this T10 initiative, how about T10 matches in Test format? Two innings, ten overs each with leads/trails, follow-on, etc. Innovation & change is the only way forward in this world. Thoughts?”

Well, going by the reactions, one can say that the fans were not impressed with the proposal to tinker with the traditional form of the game and did not waste much time in roasting the former speedster. Here are some of the reactions to his tweet.
