The ECB confirmed on Wednesday the existence of a working document, with major plans to refresh the game of cricket in England.
ESPNCricinfo released details of the Strategy Conversation Summary, which also contains plans of the inauguration of a Big Bash-style Twenty20 competition and a revised County Cricket season.
A reduction in the number of Tests played is understood to be proposed in the document to make way for the more lucrative T20 form of the sport.
However, it is the interest to reduce Test cricket from five days to four days and cutting ODI’s from 50 to 40 overs which will cause most of the debate.
England is due to host the next Cricket World Cup in 2019, and it is unlikely that the ICC will make any changes to the wider game before the tournament.
