    BCCI asks Cricket Australia for more tests

    Yes, you read it right.

    BCCI has asked Cricket Australia to convert the upcoming 7 match One Day series in India to 2 test matches and 3 One days.

    **** BCCI.

    Why only two tests?

    Yeah, would certainly welcome it but like the South African tour it will leave you wanting more.

    I am actually thrilled that if the news is true we might have 11 tests between now and the World Cup.

    3 tests away in SL August.
    2 vs Aus in Oct
    3 vs NZ in Nov
    3 in South Africa.

    Exciting.

    We hosted Aus for 4 in 08, and aren't due till 2012 end I suppose.

    This concept of broken test series' sounds pretty good. If this series goes through we'd have hosted Aus for 6 and South Africa for 5 tests in the last 2 years.

    Yeah, well, while it's a step in the right direction, two is just not enough

    I agree. Gotta make it three. I was so disappointed with the South African series - not because the series was bad (it was fantastic), but because it did not feel as though it was finished.

    Blatant attempt to minimise the number of ODIs we get on the subcontinent pre-WC.

    Don't care why they're doing it, it's good news.

    Might also be good for the Oz to get a couple of extra Tests ahead of the Ashes, given the last Tests prior are in July in England V Pakistan AFAIK

    I hope that Cricket Australia will have the good sense to reject this madness out of hand. I can't believe the irresponsibility of the BCCI. Etc etc etc.

    Seriously, while you can't help but suspect some sort of ulterior motive, you have to applaud the BCCI's Damascene conversion

    I do hope they play the Tests but definitely hope this isn't a harbinger of routine 2-Test series'.
