Test cricket has been under pressure for a variety of reasons, primarily its inability to keep pace with its younger siblings that underwrite excitement and entertainment. 2015 has been somewhat of a turnaround year for Test Cricket with more wins than draws. That should silence critics who find a draw an unexciting proposition. But a verdict does not always guarantee top fare leave alone excitement for milling fans. Many Test match victories this year have been one-sided taking the sting out of competitive cricket. Home advantage has helped yield results but not without earning wide spread criticism over pitch standards. India has already clinched the ongoing series S.Africa. Captain Virat Kohli must remember India’s draw against host Sri Lanka in August would rank better than the latest home stretch triumph. A three day outcome is definite bad news for Test cricket.
