    Great solution but would never happen

    Why not? BCCI will probably get their way for home advantage, but England are the other forerunner. If BCCI accepted this, I'd imagine it would be with the caveat of browner than usual pitches.

    Greentop in India is the other best option for a combination of best crowds and most neutral/chance of result pitches.

    Venue is whichever one of them don't make it.

    Host country forfeits most of the earnings to stop too much politicing.

    Plus, in a way it also incentivizes teams to become better suited for different conditions. Obviously this doesn't work in the short term but perhaps in the long run it might become an important part of how teams train and coaching philosophy.
    Agreed. It's a step in the right direction and a much needed response to Test cricket increasingly becoming irrelevant and unappealing to a large segment of Cricket's market. It carries most of the flaws of the old system, but on a day when I'm feeling hopeful, it can get better over the years.
    "This is a clash of strategy. And of methods, culture and politics. This is a new-era rivalry. Not as ancient as the Ashes, or as passionate as India-Pakistan. Two countries that are so different, yet share rampant egotism, high self-opinion and a belief that being born in their country is superior to other births. This brings together a belligerent bunch of brats, bullies and braggers."- Jarrod Kimber

    why not just rotate it like we do with world cups?

    then we could get some hilarious match ups. Aus v England on an Indian bunsen for example.

    That would have to be played at Lords? Else maybe Dubai still counts as neutral?

    Ind/Pak at Lords would be perfect. No advantage for either side.

    The Wikipedia edit histories for a couple of Kashmiri locations would have me believe that they change control daily.

    Yes. Well done. Hopefully, this would divert the attention of the rabidly English (we are absolutely the greatest)
    and Australian (no, we would be good too when our banned cheats and injured bowlers came back) from the dismal ODI thread.
