India sealed a comprehensive innings and 46-run victory inside seven sessions. “I think it’s very, very crucial to market Test cricket like we do for ODIs and T20Is. It’s not only the job of the players but it spreads out to the management the cricket Board and the home broadcasters about how you portray a particular product to the people,” Kohli said.
“If you create an excitement only around the T20 cricket and not much around Test cricket then in the psyche of the fans there’s already a certain template that’s established,” he added.
Kohli said Test cricket needs to be strengthened and suggested the idea of having interaction with the fans, especially school children during the games. “I think if there’s enough buzz created around Test cricket then there will be a lot more keenness to come to the stadium."
