I don’t know yet how to feel about the proposed ICC Test League. (Basic details here.) On the one hand, it does give every Test “context,” in that it’s a long, long, lead up to a final championship game. But that’s a lengthy process to keep viewers on the hook.
Before I reach any conclusions, I want to know more from Knotted Paths, whose singular blogging on tournament-organizing deserves an ICC review itself. The new plans basically exile the associate countries, which makes short-term financial sense, but is absolutely stupid in the long-term.
