“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.
Brad also said that the two teams will face each other and it can bring good to them. Also, the contestants among both will be good to watch.
“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.
