THE Marylebone Cricket Club (MCC) has given its backing to the continuation of five-day Test matches, amid debate over whether cricket’s longest format could be shortened.The International Cricket Council (ICC) has raised the possibility that Tests after 2023 could be cut to four days.The MCC’s cricket committee and world cricket committee have discussed the issue.A statement said: “Both committees believe that Test cricket should continue to be played over five days.”However, the statement did acknowledge the “benefits that four-day Test cricket could bring”.MCC remains the guardian of the laws and spirit of cricket, while its world cricket committee is an influential independent panel of former and current players and umpires, which meets twice a year to discuss cricketing issues.Test cricket has been standardised at five days since 1979, though in 2017 the ICC did permit for certain matches to be played over four days, such as England’s Test against Ireland at Lord’s last summer.Since the prospect of all matches becoming four days was raised, a number of international players, including England Test captain Joe Root, have spoken out in support of the five-day game – although the England and Wales Cricket Board said it “cautiously” supported a switch to four days as a possible way of easing the strain on players and the international schedule.

1 Wayne Rooney Former Manchester United midfielder Paul Scholes does not believe his old club have the quality up front to be a force in Europe this season.Scholes drew criticism from United manager Louis van Gaal in October when he described United as boring but the former Red Devils player did not see enough in the 0-0 draw with PSV Eindhoven to change his mind.The draw left United second in Group B with a tricky final game away to leaders Wolfsburg.Scholes told BT Sport Europe: “We keep saying defensively they’re sound and I think they are but their forward play just wasn’t good enough tonight.“You look at these teams across Europe, your Bayern Munichs, your Barcelonas it’s the players up front who make the difference.”Scholes even suggested the United players looked tired in the final half an hour at Old Trafford.“PSV were the better team in the last 30 minutes. I think they struggled for fitness, United, they looked really tired.”Scholes also repeated his boring jibe.“I keep saying it’s boring, I know, but he has sorted the defence out. Attacking wise they don’t look a threat, they don’t look good enough, they don’t look like they’re going to go and score goals.“I think maybe he’s set up his team to be very good defensively because he thinks, maybe, he hasn’t got the quality up front.”
