seems pointless
we already have rankings and a world cup

all test series have context because the test #1 ranking is a prized trophy

its just going to add more complications, I'd rather see a tiered system

Have been hearing about this Test championship thing for almost 10 years now, I think.
Not holding my breath.

Just looks like another factor to add complexity to the future tours program and it flies in the face of trying to ensure we have commercial viability.

It just occurred to me that tournaments like the old tri series World Series Cup carried the game for so long through the 1980s and 90s.
This has now been replaced by the IPL.

time is a big issue. for exactly same time allotted for tv, a T20 tournament get you 20x times money. why bother ??
