Sri Lankan head coach Mickey Arthur backs 5-day Tests

Mickey Arthur, Sri Lanka’s recently-hired head coach, has said he doesn’t “favour” reducing Test cricket to four days.

Speaking exclusively at the team hotel in Pune, Arthur said, “I don’t favour this idea. This longest format of the game should not be tampered with. The 5-day Tests are being played for years now and just 3-4 days ago we saw the interest generated in the Test on the fifth day.”
