    Yes I would be thrilled to keep fielding for another 40 overs in a two day match after I had already lost.

    Proudly against the bring back Bennett movement since he is injury prone and won't last 5 days.

    Icon6 World Test Championship

    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?

    We have had a couple of threads on this - no one could propose a suitable format - and the ICC hasn't managed to come up with a format for it either. Spell out your ideas and I will read them with interest.

    Give an example of your schedule. Is it one home game and one away game against each team?

    Sounds logistically awkward.

    Thank you for your response. I do not know very much about the Cricket calendar, so I cannot propose suitable schedule for Tests, ODIs, World T20, Club Cricket etc.

    Of course. Why wouldn't you keep playing after you win.

    You would probably to do something like this.

    Group A
    Australia
    New Zealand

    Group B
    South Africa
    Zimbabwe

    Group C
    Group C.1
    India
    Sri Lanka
    Group C.2
    Bangladesh
    Pakistan

    Group D
    England
    West Indies

    In October-November
    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

    In November-December
    Group C.1 play at both venues in Group A
    Group B play at both venues in Group A
    Aus play in NZ

    Jan/February/March
    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

    Mar/Apr
    Eng play in WI
    Group B playat both venues Group D
    Group C.1 play at both venues Group D

    Oct/Nov
    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

    Nov/Dec
    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

    Jan/Feb/Mar
    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

    Mar/Apr
    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.

    NRL Tipping Champion 2014

    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.

    No, I do not suggest such thing. I suggest every team meets twice (Home & Away), 18 games in 2 years.

    And I think that the home side should be given chance to choose batting first or second in the Home & Away competitions.

    Oh well clearly you saying that is much more superior to me actually taking the time to create a realistic schedule which is 18 games in total over a two year period.

    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.
