The cricket fans are craving for cricket matches. Coronavirus pandemic has stopped every cricketing activity. The players and the fans are enthusiastically waiting for cricket to resume. It is unclear when the situations will get better.
Brad Hogg, the former leg-spinner, suggests that when the lockdown ends, organizers shall go for Pakistan vs India test series instead of India vs Australia. He thinks that World Test Championship should be scrapped up for a while and such cricket shall resume that will return the spirit of cricket to fans such as Pakistan vs India.
According to Brad Hogg, World Test Championship shall be stopped and Ashes between India and Pakistan shall begin to return the dead spirit to the game.
“The pandemic has opened the door for the ultimate cricket rebirth. Viewers want to see some competitive cricket, so scrap the World Test Championship for a while for a couple of series that are really going to ignite the interest. Firstly, scrap this summer’s India against Australia five-match series and have the Ashes played instead,” he said.

“But where does that leave India? They will play Pakistan in a four-match Test series, with two matches in India and the other two in Pakistan, over the Christmas period. We have not seen it for a while and the public is starving for it.” added Brad Hogg.
He also justified that it will bring good to the two contestants and for the contestants from the both sides such as Virat Kohli, Babar Azam. India and Pakistan series will be something that no fan is gonna miss.
“There are many reasons for it. Firstly, [Virat] Kohli and Babar Azam, who is the best out of those two? Well, that will be proven in this series,” he said. “Then you have got [Jasprit] Bumrah against [Shaheen Shah] Afridi, which means quality bowling attack and then the spinners, Ravichandran [Ashwin] versus [Yasir] Shah and it’s all in Asian conditions. Brilliant stuff, let’s have it” he concluded.
