    I would like to see 5 Test match series between India-Pakistan, India-Australia, India-England, 4 test series between India-SL, India-SA, India-WI....combine that with a reduction in the number of ODI's and other matches.

    The five test series between India-Pakistan and India-Australia should take place every two years. The five test series between England should take place every two or three years. The four test series can take place every three or four years.

    This will decrease the overall amount of cricket, and increase the overall amount of worthwhile cricket.


    Oh, and remove the rubbish two and three test series.....

    I would like to see Pakistan play more than 3 test matches in a series (yes, I know that they are playing 4 tests against England but I would like to see more of it).

    Fred Trueman:

    That was a tremendous six, the ball was still in the air as it went over the boundary.
    That's what cricket is all about. Two batsmen pitting their wits against one another.
    Anyone foolish enough to predict the outcome of this match is a fool.
    Unless something happens that we can't predict, I don't think a lot will happen.

    5 Test series, and more spin around the world, not just the sub-continent.

    I would like to see Australia losing every game by an innings.

    More realistically, I'd like to see more 5-Test series.

    same, all pitches around Australia seem to be batsmans paradises, put the bounce back into the WACA, green the GABBA up more, and put more turn at the SCG - some batsmans paradises are good, but not all.

    I'd like to see bowlers dominate batsmen more,whether it be that more class bowlers start to appear or pitches become more bowler freindly i don't care,i'm getting sick of seeing bowlers batted out of the game.

    If I could change 1 thing I wouldn't bother.
    I'd need to change 50 things or so before I made the desired impact.
