The ECB should leave the length of Test matches at 5 days. With an increasing focus on T20 at the height of summer Test matches will be increasingly played at the start and end of the season when rain is likely to have an impact on the result making draws more likely. The fewer results we have in Test match cricket the more likely people will be driven to favouring the shorter formats of the game thus depriving the first class game of future audiences. England is one of the few countries where Test matches still attract strong attendances; there is no need to tamper with the format.
