“I don’t think you should play Day-Night. Test cricket should be played only in daylight and in full whites, without numbers on the back. That’s a personal view. We should keep it simple. It’s the main format,” Dilshan said on the sidelines of the Road Safety World Series on Thursday.
“I feel Test cricket should be played in the traditional way, just like the gentleman’s game,” he said.
He also believes that Test cricket has ‘definitely been impacted’ with the advent of T20s.
“Early on in my career, we used to play a lot of one-dayers besides Test cricket. Some countries have now reduced number of Test matches to make way for more T20 and ODIs, so it has affected Tests, but ICC should push Test cricket more,” Dilshan, who played 87 Tests for Sri Lanka, said.
