Days after New Zealand Cricket showed their support for two-tier Test system, Cricket Australia (CA) have done the same at their three-day conference held at Melbourne during this week.

The conference was held to set a five-years  strategy for cricket, with the two-tier system being one of the most important topic during the conference.

Speaking on the issue CA chief executive James Sutherland said that the proposed system is the future of the game. The Board Of Control for Cricket in India had previously expressed their reservations over the system but Sutherland said that they are ready to deal with it.

“The need for that context and structure is clearly there,” Sutherland said. “If that (India’s opposition to a two-tiered Test model) is an obstacle then we need to work through that. But at the same time those that do see it as an obstacle also need to see a bigger picture about the benefits of having some structure and looking at an alternative commercial model for bilateral rights.”

Sutherland said that the rise of Twenty20 domestic tournaments have changed the market of the game globally.

“We’re seeing a diminution in the value of (television) rights,” he said.

“Part of the reason for that is because international cricket, Tests, one-day cricket and T20 internationals, doesn’t have the context that the fans are looking for to really understand.”

Meanwhile, David Peever, CA chairman, also revealed their support for the inclusion of the game in Olympics.He said that the game’s apex body- International Cricket Council- is trying hard to solve the issues which is not letting India to agree for the same.

“We see the Olympics, as do all other countries bar one, as very important to the development and growth of the game globally,” Peever said. “The discussions at the ICC are ongoing and we are continuing to try to work through the issues which are making it difficult for India to at this point agree.”



    An avid sports lover, i always wanted to pursue a career in football. But just like the millions out there i did not put in the hard work needed to achieve my dream and now i have become a fan instead of the player. Anyway, writing for sports has kept me closer to this field. One more thing, yours sincerely is a die-hard Liverpool fan.
    You will never walk alone.
