Back in late 19th century when Palwanka Baloo used to bowl to English batsmen in nets to get extra money, We stand today where Indian Cricket is at the top of their game.

In the last two to three years almost all matches have yielded results. This is not the case with India only, rather all other teams are providing a good competitive game. Even drawn matches were interesting.

In the last couple of months, we have seen Australia fighting their way to a draw a test match in UAE, England winning a series in Sri Lanka, India winning a series in Australia for the first time, WI showing a return by dismantling powerful English side and SL defeating SA today in one of the most competitive situation.

Test Cricket is not dying. It is becoming better day by day.

I doubt test cricket will exist by 2050. Not enough money to support it, the main focus for players/sponsors/broadcasters etc. will increasingly be T20/50 over stuff, and test cricket will be sidelined as a novelty. Even now, tests are only truly strong in England, with middling support in Australia/India/New Zealand/South Africa.

I hope to be wrong, obviously! I think test match cricket is the greatest game in the world.
