"Selfish" India need to play day-night Tests - Waugh

Mark Waugh, former Australian cricketer turned commentator, has blamed India for being selfish in not playing pink-ball Test match.

Waugh added that India should be doing everything in their power to preserve Test cricket, especially as they are one of the few nations that manage to draw in big crowds. It was reported that the members of the Indian team were not too keen on playing the pink-ball Test. So its really only Australia, India and England where Test cricket is alive and well. Why is the BCCI unconvinced by the day-night format, and why are Indian Cricket Bosses unsure about the day-night format of the Test cricket? There would be three T20 internationals prior to that.Mark - who will stand down from his duties at Australia's T20 selector in August - trained his guns at the Indian think tank and said that he simply doesn't understand India's apprehension towards pink-ball cricket and the younger of the illustrious Waugh brothers went up to the extent of calling BCCI as "selfish".

Earlier this month, Cricket Australia had confirmed that India would not play a day-night Test in Adelaide during their upcoming tour to Australia later this year. "Working alongside my fellow selectors, the coaching staff and players over the past four years has been a privilege, and I'm proud of the achievements of the Australian teams across all formats in this time", he said.

Meanwhile, Waugh lauded Ireland for giving Pakistan a run for their money in their Test debut. "The depth of Irish cricket is going to be key there". They are yet to play a five-day pink-ball Test match. They've got two of the better bowlers in the IPL tournament in Rashid Khan and Mujeeb Ur Rahman.

Waugh, who stepped down from the post of Australian national selector after serving nearly four years at the job, further said that though Test cricket was the pure form of cricket, the popularity has dropped in many cricketing countries such as West Indies and South Africa.
