“They deserve more, and you’ve got to recognise the quality of the cricket I think”

Cricket Australia and Cricket South Africa have announced that they are in talks about organising a four-Test series following the conclusion of a very successful and intense three-Test series in South Africa.

Cricket Australia chairman Wally Edwards stated that both boards were interested in increasing the Test series from three Tests to four since both teams were evenly matched.

“We’re talking to them at the moment about more,” Edwards told ESPNcricinfo during the recently concluded third Test in Cape Town. “They deserve more, and you’ve got to recognise the quality of the cricket I think. I think it’s not a bad stepping stone to have recognised quality by another Test or two. That principle might come out.

“Half the challenge is fitting this in. But Test series have been getting quicker, more compressed because that’s life. It’s the way the world is, faster, closer and quicker. I think you always want a warm-up game or two, because one might be washed out, that’s why you’d want two. [But] this has been a very good series.”
