Bengaluru, June 12 (CNMSports) - Former England captain Kevin Pietersen on Tuesday suggested various methods like day-night Tests, equal pay, marketing and innovation and cheaper tickets to reinvigorate Test cricket. Speaking at the 6th MAK Pataudi Memorial Lecture, the 37-year-old, who also became the first non-Indian cricketer to deliver the lecture, insisted on making the five-day format the pinnacle of cricket but felt that every format must be respected.
"Having played every form of cricket in every corner of the cricketing globe, I remain 100 per cent convinced that the five-day Test remains the supreme form of the game," the 37-year-old expressed. Also praising the shortest format of the game, Pietersen said: "20-20 provides the thrill, the noise, the speed and no little genius. It has taken fielding to a new level and has redefined batting."
