Mark Taylor is very hopeful about the first ever day-night Test match between Australia and New Zealand which will begin from this weekend.
Starting from 27th November, Australia vs New Zealand match will enter in the history books as a first ever day-night international Test match. There is also another thing that will enter in the cricket history book – Pink ball. Pink ball will be used for the first time in the International cricket.
Mark Taylor, the former Australian skipper, who always shows his support for Test cricket, is looking forward to this Test match. Currently, he is advocating for four-day, 100-overs Test match which starts from Thursday and ends on Sunday evening.
He gives a clear reason for his thoughts. He told the Sydney Daily Telegraph,” As someone said to me years ago, why are we surprised when people go to one-day cricket and T20 cricket more than they do a Test match, when we put all the one-dayers and T20s on in school holidays and at night, and we put Test matches on during the week outside of school holidays.”
Taylor also speaks about the changes in the thoughts of cricket fans throughout the globe. He said, ” You’ve got to look at the game as a whole. Where is cricket going? The younger generation generally wants more instant gratification and I think over five days to keep them interested in the game is not so easy.”
He told the reporters that currently people are emphasising for the best things of the world. So there is always a need to work towards the best, which only can help this game at present.
Taylor is also showing his support for the Test championship. He wants to include the similar points system like football in the Test championship. It means 3 points should be awarded to the winning team while one point should be shared both teams for the resulting draw match.
