Australia may have separate T20 and Test teams

#1
Quote:With frenzy of the shortest version of the game catching up fast, Australia may have separate Test and Twenty20 teams in near future, feels Cricket Australia chief executive James Sutherland.
In a keynote speech at a major CA seminar yesterday, Sutherland said the day is not far when Australia will have specialist players for both Twenty20 and Test playing simultaneously on opposite sides of the world.

"While hosting Tests here, Australia could have its Twenty20 team touring somewhere else,"Sutherland was quoted as saying in the Australian."It is difficult not to see a generation of players coming through with an eye to becoming Twenty20 specialists. As more Twenty20 cricket is played there are clearly opportunities for players to choose to be specialists.

"Taking it through to its natural extension, if you have a specialist team then why can&apost you have a specialist Twenty20 team and a specialist Test team (playing) at the same time?"he asked. Sutherland also cited the example of rugby."In rugby union, for example, the ARU has a sevens team and a Wallabies team,"he said.
