ICC should grant Ireland Test status soon, believes Jason Gillespie
Former Australia pace bowler Jason Gillespie, who is now head coach of Yorkshire has called for Ireland to be raised to Test cricket level, as he conjectures the develop would prize the country’s performances in One Day Internationals and T-20 internationals and provide an obligatory uplift to the long format of the match.
Jason Gillespie said that one extravagant way to give Test cricket an uplift straight away would be to give Ireland Test status. He added that it is something that should happen sooner rather than later from the International Cricket Council (ICC).
Jason Gillespie said that statistics disclosed that outside of England, Australia and to a lesser degree, South Africa people do not turn up to see Test cricket. He also added that that is just the path it is, and it is regretful as British Broadcasting Corporation (BBC) reported.
Gillespie added that let if Ireland were given Test status, that would be big news in international cricket, and it would be a huge pragmatic story for the world cricket.
Jason Gillespie also told that the International Cricket Council (ICC) and all the country boards are discussing a lot about the importance of saving the probity of Test cricket. He added that if it is that salient then they should look to ameliorate it, and in his point of view including Ireland would ameliorate it.
Ireland made a hit in the Super Eight stage of the 2007 World Cup, defeating Pakistan and Bangladesh, and asserted an indelible win over England at the 2011 tournament. He added that they have played in every World T-y20 since 2009.
The International Cricket Council (ICC) had accepted a play-off system in April that would give Scotland and Ireland the chance to play Test cricket. The world ruling body said that the International Cricket Council (ICC) Test Challenge would take place every 4 years from 2018.
The report added that the winners of the International Cricket Council (ICC) Intercontinental Cup, presenting the top non-Test sides, would play four five-day matches against the lowest-ranked Test team.
