T20 riches killing Pak Test cricket

#1
Quote:Former Pakistan captain Mohammad Yousuf has asked the Cricket Board (PCB) to raise the Test match fees or face the possibility of a further slump in the rankings of the game's five-day version.

Yousuf told the inquiry committee of the PCB, constituted few months back to probe into the national team's disastrous tour of Australia, that Pakistan was facing a shortage of quality Test players.

"The truth is we don't have enough quality Test players. We are now just good at Twenty20 cricket. We are not producing players who are technically strong and capable of long innings," Yousuf said in a leaked video recording of the proceedings held earlier this year.

"Nowadays the players are only interested in playing ODIs or T20 matches. And why not when he can earn between 200,000 to 300,000 rupees for one ODI or T20 match, whereas he gets only 250,000 rupees for a Test match," he argues.
