Cricket boards have made major changes in Test cricket shirts to finance the boards.

The ICC has allowed commercial logos on players’ test shirts to boost countries’ revenue.

The severe blow to the economy caused by the coronavirus has also affected cricketing nations, how to make up for the loss and increase revenue in difficult economic conditions? In view of these difficulties, the International Cricket Council has allowed the logo to be affixed to white Test cricket shirts.

According to the ICC, the move is a breach of the tradition of Test cricket, but under certain circumstances, the International Cricket Council, like other bodies, has taken an extraordinary steps.

The 32-square-inch logo will now be affixed to the player’s chest for publicity. Last year, the number and name on the back of Test shirts were also tested.

Some former cricketers and other circles associated with the game have strongly criticized the ICC’s decision to make players a billboard.

Earlier, the ICC approved new changes to the game due to the coronavirus and banned the use of saliva.
