Who is to end this farce?

The ICC will not. They are the ones who are encouraging it. The country boards are more than willing to party with the ICC on this...

The real people who will force this change are the players who have balls and are willing to take a stand.

Men like Sachin, Ponting, Kallis, Dravid, etc. Sadly Sachin is reduced to a salesman, Dravid thinks of players as "entertainers" and Ponting and others have no appetitte for this.

Customer's (Viewers) can't change a thing because the ICC has divided its customer base and they aren't united.

I don't see how this farce will end. I guess we all deserve unless we can all start a protest movement that hits players and the ICC where it hurts the most....

Two test series must go. 3 tests must be the minimum. The ICC must stipulate that test series must be of at least 3 tests. I won't hold my breath waiting for this!!

The Reverse Sweep

No, sadly you are right Ross. There's nothing like a five Test series to whet the appetite. That's the number of Tests South Africa should be playing in Englnd this summer. Sadly it will only be three.

The Reverse Sweep

I know the South African and Australian players registered their disgruntlement that their series in SA last year was just two Tests long, but as you say they were not vocal enough. In the latest Wisden Lawrence Booth says that two test series should be restricted to those involving Bangladesh and/or Zimbabwe and I'd have to say i agree with that.
