New Playing Conditions for 4-day Tests
MUMBAI, Oct 12: The cricket committee chaired by India's former coach Anil Kumble will discuss the new Playing Conditions for the 4-day Tests, it is learnt here.

According to the ICC (International Cricket Council) sources, the same will be put up before the Chief Executives' Committee (CEC) and the final decision on awarding the official status to the 4-day Test will be deliberated by the Board members later this week in New Zealand.

Zimbabwe team is in line to play the first 4-day /night pink ball Test against South Africa as the traditional Boxing Day Test.

"Certain Playing Conditions, like how many overs in a day can be bowled, whether the bowlers would be exhausted, if it is decided with 100 overs a day etc. are to be deliberated", a top Zimbabwe Cricket board official said.

"Practically, it will be a 400-overs game (then) as against the present 450-overs a Test and the captains will have to decide its strategy and timings of the declaration (if any) in this frame", one of the the Board members said.

"Mainly there are two reasons why we have chosen to agree the 4-day Test. Firstly, ours is a low ranking team and we don't want to be embarrassed if the regular (5-day) Test is over within four days against the top South Africa team. Secondly, this is not a new proposal. There had been talks of limiting Test match to be of four days to ensure good crowd at the stadium", he added.

Mixed response: There have been mixed response to this proposal.

I feel a 4-day Test takes away something from Test cricket. In my opinion Test cricket should be left as is", Graeme Cremer, the captain of the Zimbabwe team said exclusively.
