Yes I would be thrilled to keep fielding for another 40 overs in a two day match after I had already lost.
Now 10 teams have the Test status. So, 10 teams play Tests in the Home & Away format (18 games) in 2 years. That should be called the "World Test Championship" or so.
What do you think about that?
Give an example of your schedule. Is it one home game and one away game against each team?
Sounds logistically awkward.
Its a great idea, but until the "beam me up Scotty" technology is perfected 'twill never happen
You would probably to do something like this.
Group D play a Test at both venues in Group B
Group C.2 play a Test at both venues in Group B
Zim play in SA
Group C.1 play at both venues in Group A
Group B play at both venues in Group A
Aus play in NZ
Group A play 4 matches in Group C
Group D play at both venues in Group C.2
Group C.2 play at C1
Ind @ SL
Bang @ Pak
Eng play in WI
Group B playat both venues Group D
Group C.1 play at both venues Group D
Group A play a test at both venues Group B
Group C.1 play a test at both venues Group B
SA play in Zim
Group C.2 play a Test at both Group A venues
Group D play a Test at both venues Group A
NZ play in Aus
Group B play 4 matches at Group C
Group D play a match at both venues Group C.1
Group C.1 @ Group C.2
SL @ Ind
Pak @ Bang
WI play in Eng
Group A play @ Group D
Group C.2 play @ Group D
FINAL 3 MATCHES (team on top of the table gets 2 home matches)
Biggest Issue is grouping WI and Eng.
BTW, I would use the Sheffield Shield model where its 2 points for first innings points, 6 points total (regardless of claiming first innings) for a win.

Over 0.2: Putland to Nevill, OUT, no run, full ball swings in late to crash into his pads. Nevill is almost falling over trying to get bat on it but can't. Huge shout for LBW and Umpire Martell eventually raises the finger! P.Nevill - lbw b:Putland 0 (1 ball, 1 minute).
I've stuffed up the sub continental teams a bit. Need a minute or two to work that out properly.
I cannot understand why the number of outs are not counted in runs in the limited-over games. And even in Tests, the number of outs should be counted because there is declaration.
