    England will cautiously back a proposal to make four-day Tests mandatory from 2023 under the World Test Championship.

    England will cautiously back a proposal to make four-day Tests mandatory from 2023 under the World Test Championship.


    The International Cricket Council cricket committee will discuss the issue as the game looks for ways to free up a crammed international calendar and reduce player workload.

    Ashes rivals Australia already seem to be taking the same view, with Cricket Australia chief executive Kevin Roberts saying the board would seriously consider playing four-day tests.

    Four-day matches were given the green light by the ICC in 2017, when South Africa hosted one against Zimbabwe, while England played one against Ireland in July.
