Former Australian captain Ian Chappell wants the world’s leading players to collectively decide on a structure that will save the future of Test cricket and should make India captain Virat Kohli its spokesman. Chappell, one of cricket’s greatest leaders, believes Test-playing countries cannot produce good cricketers in the long run unless they are motivated to play cricket fast.
Chappell wrote in ‘ESPN Cricinfo’ that the skills required to achieve the test level must be acquired at an early age and then improved by intense competition. This can only be achieved if there is a dynamic development system in test playing countries. He wrote, ‘Test cricket can stay if it continues, otherwise it drops.’

According to the former Australian captain, players will need to organize the summit under Kohli’s leadership. “If his (Tests) skills are well developed, then the player can adapt to any format of the game. Kohli is a good example.
At the grassroots level, cricketers’ frustration with their skills has diminished. Chappell said, “The system has been practiced in cricket for many decades, in which the player gradually progressed from school cricket to international cricket through several stages.” “The revenue priority has affected the skill of the players under consideration,” he said.
