Ben Stokes makes case for Test cricket as debate rages over five-day format

Ben Stokes

This week, Ben Stokes made an emphasis on the unusual 5-day test cricket thriller-an unforgettable success over South Africa in a thrilling match in a game-raising series by England. 

His matches in Cape Town on Tuesday were the subject of an intensification of debates about the future of the longest-running game since 1877. 

In the coming months the International Cricket Council (ICC), as part of the structuring of the global calendar beyond 2023, is to discuss reducing tests to four days. Cricketer has shown an excellent ability to innovate throughout recent decades, incorporating many types of cricket that have taken firm root in a sport very closely connected to tradition. 

Nevertheless, the latest proposal has split teams, most of whom find the test cricket to be the gold standard, in the attempt to expand the packed international cricket calendar to save time. 

In 2017, the ICC allowed four-day testing and was tested against Ireland in one-off matches between South Africa and Zimbabwe and England. But the testing world championship, now headed by Virat Kohli's India, is not allowed. 

The Cricinfo website reported that compulsory four-day tests would have produced a minimum of 335 days of scheduled cricket, instead of five-day matches during the current cycle from 2015 to 2023. The Cricket Board of England and Wales has given "cautious" assistance to the new versions and four-day assessments have been strictly taken into account in Australia and New Zealand. 

Nevertheless, a number of top cricketers have spoken out against this proposal and the representative committee of the global players has cautioned of' significant resistance of the community,' while others like Shane Warne have advocated a move. England Allrounder Stokes recorded a 189-run win for England, which set the four-game series at 1:1 on Tuesday, with the last two South African wickets in Newlands. 

He and Captain Joe Root spoke later for the longer format allowing time for play to be played on the drama and nuances in the game.
