Information 

Dubai, Dec 24 (PTI) Sachin Tendulkar's historic 50th hundred, the fight for the number one spot between India and South Africa and the "enthralling" Ashes series show that Test cricket remains the pinnacle of the game, says ICC CEO Haroon Lorgat.

"These are iconic series which clearly capture the imagination and interest of cricket lovers across the world.

Everyone is talking Test cricket and the demand for tickets, particularly in Melbourne, it is very impressive," Lorgat said of the ongoing Ashes series which is locked at 1-1 after three Tests.

"I was fortunate to be in Adelaide a few weeks ago when they recorded their biggest attendance since the Bodyline series in 1932-33. Cricket Australia is now expecting crowds of more than 90,000 to watch the Boxing Day Test in Melbourne.

In South Africa I am delighted to hear so many people excited and following the respective Test series.
