Kevin Pietersen Says Test Cricket Remains Supreme Form Of The Game

Former England captain Kevin Pietersen on Tuesday said that five-day Test cricket still remains the supreme form of the game despite the rise of the shortest format of the game -- Twenty20. Pietersen, speaking at the 6th MAK Pataudi Memorial Lecture, suggested some ideas to reinvent Test cricket and make it a 'spectacle'. The 37-year-old also became the first non-Indian cricketer to deliver the lecture.

"Having played every form of cricket in every corner of the cricketing globe, I remain 100 percent convinced that the five-day Test remains the supreme form of the game," Pietersen said.

"Let's make Test cricket a spectacle. Garnish it with colour and fireworks. Fill the grounds. Play in the evenings. Give the umpires microphones to broadcast to the spectators," Pietersen opined.
