ECB considering to hold Test Championship

England & Wales Cricket Board (EWCB) is considering to hold Test championship for promoting Test cricket.

Chairman ECB Giles Clarke told this while expressing his views at the seminar of the Asian Cricket Council.

He said that Twenty20 cricket has become very popular and this can be judged from the fact that 95 per cent tickets of the T20 World Cup, going to be held next year, have been sold.

Giles said that the ECB did not oppose to change the result of the infamous 2006 Oval Test at the ICC meeting because there is no racial discrimination in cricket and all differences are within the ground limits and all are equal off the field.
