In a bid to bring back fans and excitement to the stadiums, the ECB are set to introduce four-day Tests at home starting as early as 2020. The change will mostly likely take place after the scheduled 2019 Ashes. <p></p> <p></p>According to <i>telegraph.co.uk</i>, an ECB source said that they will bring up the topic of four-day Tests in the upcoming International Cricket Council (ICC) meeting in October. Agenda for the meeting is to discuss a revamp of the game and introduce a Test championship in 2020. <p></p> <p></p>ECB is likely to face opposition from the purists, who already feel that the influx of T20 cricket is hammering the sport. With a day short, ECB along with many other boards can focus on T20 leagues and reduce player fatigue. The last Test match to feature a four-day Test was between New Zealand and Pakistan in 1973. <p></p> <p></p>It was only last week that Cricket South Africa announced its plan to play a four-day Test against Zimbabwe come Boxing Day. <p></p> <p></p>Colin Graves, the chairman of the ECB, had come out in support of four-day Tests last year. <p></p> <p></p> Every Test match would start on a Thursday, with Thursday and Friday being corporate days and then Saturday and Sunday the family days. From a cost point of view you'd lose that fifth day, which would save a lot of money from the ground's point of view and the broadcasters... I would look at that, he concluded.
