Earlier this month, Cricket South Africa decided to withdraw from the international one-day series against Australia to ensure their players were available for the new domestic T20 competition. Shastri said on the Telegraph’s sports podcast: “I’m a little wary of the number of bilateral series, especially in T20 cricket.

Shastri proposed a two-tier test structure to store the game’s longest format. He said: “I think two levels are needed, otherwise the test cricket will be over in 10 years.” Shastri said: “You need six teams at the top level and six teams at the second level and more.

These top six teams get a chance to play more against each other as less T20 cricket and only franchise -cricket will give time.In the same way, all formats of the game can remain intact.
