In January 2018, the MCC World Cricket committee met in Sydney to discuss a number of topics including the future of Test cricket.
The committee believes the upcoming World Test Championship is the key event in helping safeguard the future of Test cricket, with other measures recommended for the continued success of the longest form of the game.
The committee, however, also felt the public had not been consulted sufficiently as to what they would like to see from Test cricket and how to encourage future generations through the gates. If Test cricket is to survive and flourish as a spectator sport, it needs to adapt to what the fans want.
MCC has therefore launched a survey to understand better the public's views on Test cricket.
The survey has now closed. Results of the survey will be discussed by the World Cricket committee and shared with the ICC and National Governing Bodies.
