South Africa-Australia 1st Test fails to attract crowd at Durban

Bairstow, however, has no plans to exclusively focus on limited overs cricket as he is eager to prolong his Test career and keep representing his country in the longest format.

"In this ultra-modern age counter attractions have multiplied many times since my youthful days", wrote a former England batsman as he questioned whether teenagers had the time to "devote to cricket".

The 28-year-old sees more day-night Test cricket as one solution to combat the T20 pull, while pointing to the recent huge crowds in Australia for the Ashes as a prime example that test cricket can still draw big numbers. It's a really tricky time for cricket. (But) I want to play all formats for England.

"If we're not careful, there are going to be more and more people [giving up red-ball cricket]", he said. "I'd hate to see cricket being a one-format game".

USA stocks close sharply lower on rate worries
Wednesday's plunge left the Dow down 6 percent from its January 2018 all-time high, while the S&P 500 is off about 5.5 percent. European markets closed mostly lower: London's FTSE 0.1 per cent, Paris closed flat and Frankfurt was 0.3 per cent lower.

The growth of domestic Twenty20 leagues across the planet, including the Caribbean Premier League, Indian Premier League and Ausralia's Big Bash League is a major contributor to the decline of Test match competition's declining popularity. "I am not surprised at all". But I want to play all formats for England - I have put a lot of time and effort into white and red-ball cricket over a long period of time to get into the teams and play for England. "I thought it would happen with the way contracts have gone and I am sure there will be other people that follow in the future", he said. It's getting quite lucrative in terms of the money you can earn.

Anderson also issued a forewarning and said, "The danger for us is that it becomes, not an epidemic, but popular among players to do this".

Bairstow and Anderson grew up in an environment where the most reliable way for cricketers to maximise their income was to become an established Test player as this would lead to a larger wage packet and enhanced opportunities for sponsorship deals.

"You always want your best players playing as much high-quality cricket as you can", Angus Fraser, an England selector, told AFP on Friday.
