CHENNAI, India - The International Cricket Council (ICC) is considering four-day Tests as part of a series of innovations to keep the oldest form of the sport exciting in the wake of Twenty20's growing popularity.

"The board of the ICC is determined to ensure that Test match cricket is seen as the pinnacle of our great game," ICC president David Morgan told India Today magazine while elaborating on changes needed.

"We need better over rates, better pitches that give a good balance between bat and ball and we need to consider day-night Test match cricket," he said.

"Another thought that many people have is whether Test match cricket can be played over four days rather than five." - Reuters
