The fast-mode of cricket left behind the longest format of the game, Test cricket, well behind in the audience-catching race, but few recent Test matches started to revive the interest of cricket fans towards this format.
On the other hand, ICC was leaving no stone unturned for this purpose and added new ideas to the ICC Test Championship including the numbers and names on the shirt.
Ben Stokes has now done a great deal for the resurgence of audience’s inclination towards the Test format as England clinched a remarkable victory in the 3rd Ashes Test against Australia at the Emerald Headingley.
Twitterati tuned into their accounts and started to break the stereotypes about the format. “Who said Test cricket is boring”, almost everyone questioned. Undoubtedly, Test cricket is the real beauty of this sport which demands sheer patience, temperament, and dedication towards the game. This does not make the format of the game dull and boring but exciting and thrilling.
