[blockquote]I reckon cricket needs to try something, because the success of the current Australian side is hurting cricket in other nations.
Spoken like true ignorant. There is no way in hell, a country like india will ever have their cricket damaged. Its gods game in their country and nothing will every take it from them. The more they get, the happier they are. Even if not winning. They love the game, not just their team. You could throw Zimbabwie and Trinidad in a match in India and have a sell out crowd.
A tsunami could not stop children in Sri Lanka from playing cricket with a broken fence pailing. We have to remember we havn't always been this side. We have only really just become the superpower of cricket that we are. And, eventually, we won't be their anymore. Eveyone takes their turn but it doesn't damage the game at all IMO.[/blockquote]
I'm glad you think that test matches over in 3 days are good for the game. I'm glad you think Cricket in South Africa, New Zealand and the West Indies is all rosy. Have a look at the crowds in these places before you make a hack statement like that based solely on one or two countries.
I, like many others are sick of test matches being over in 3 days. How good was the test series in 2000/2001 in India. It was great because it was close, with some great cricket being played.
I know it's not Australia's fault that these other test playing nations are struggling, but for you to say that Australia's dominance is not hurting other nations is ignorant.
