Virat Kohli’s idea to keep Test cricket alive in India: “Five Test centres. Period”

Team India skipper Virat Kohli said that Test cricket in India should only be played in five venues while limited-overs cricket can be rotated across several venues in the country.

So that becomes a challenge already when you are leaving their shores, because when we go to any place, we know we are having four Test matches at these avenues,” Kohli said the post-match press conference.

Currently, India have 21 stadiums where international cricket is played, with 31 other venues, where games are not played.

Test cricket much like other formats is rotated across the country and pitches continue to be a talking point, with some turning, some not so and some playing completely opposite to what it was thought it would.

However, India continue to dominate with conditions favouring the hosts.

Kohli’s concern are legit as India seem to dominate every other team coming to tour this part of the subcontinent and have continued to win series one after the other. India’s 3-0 whitewash over South Africa was their first-ever over the Proteas and 11th series victory on the trot at home.

Next in line for Kohli’s men will be Bangladesh, who will play two Test matches, which will also be a part of the World Test Championships.
