Separate LOI and test tours

Who came up with this idea and what's the logic behind it, Am I the only one who find this recent thing annoying and unnecessary and isn't ICC as an organization should do its best to reduce global carbon footprint this practice is probably doing just the opposite.

It is mainly because the world cups are coming in between. So some teams are scheduling separate visits for the tests and the Lois which are mandatory to be completed in the super league.

Plus some sides have vastly separate sides in shorter formats to tests so can do it. The amount being played we will see more teams have separate red and white ball coaches too.

I assume it is because of covid screwing over the schedule and the repercussions of it but I agree about the carbon footprint, fair point

I prefer it when they are separate tours tbh. Hard to care about LOIs right after a thrilling Test series.
LOIs should be before. Like NatWest series used to be before the Ashes.

It happened plenty before Covid

2005 Ashes was a perfect example. I was only young but I remember the hype it built up, for me at least, was huge. The way England went toe-to-toe with Aus in those ODIs beforehand made me think this wasn't going to be your usual Ashes series.

Then McGrath stepping on a stray pill, systematic ball tampering and a few other little bits of cheating (sub fielder use, recruiting a South African superstar) and the rest is history

That natwest final was as good as the test series that followed but they overdid with another 3 odi series just before the start of Ashes.
