Well, the hands of BCCI were forced in those instances by the wrath of the Indian fans. The power of the TV remote. Of their own accord, they had not scheduled any test matches at all.yeah this. can't see why they cant reschedule the odi leg for sometime later.
bcci is showing the way in this regard.
To check out the following that test cricket has on Cricket Web, I went through some old threads on the India-SA and India-Australia series recently. The amount of flack that BCCI received for increasing the number of test matches from zero to two (and not three) was somewhat astonishing.
I have had great fun this morning, visualizing the Cricket Web horde that would have spontaneously arisen, breathing fire and brimstone at the BCCI had they actually curtailed the number of test matches in a series in order to accommodate a T20 tournament.
