The ICC Cricket Committee has recommended that Full Member nations be required to play a minimum number of Tests over a 4-year period in what is being presented as the latest attempt to protect the status of the 5-day game.


Reports indicate that the number proposed by the committee, is merely a minimum 4 Tests each year which would mean at least 16, over a 4-year cycle.


There have been a number of recent examples of Test series being postponed due to conflicting demands, either from one-day cricket or the proliferation of T20 leagues.
