039;Selfish' India need to play day-night Tests- Waugh

"Their challenge will be to bring some younger players through, because they're a pretty old team", Waugh said.

Former Test batsman Mark Waugh has dubbed India's decision to not play day-night match against Australia as "selfish" while adding that their move is holding back the future of the game. His comments have come in wake of BCCI's refusal to play a day/night fixture against Australia on the tour of Australia later this year, "It's a little bit selfish from India's point of view because we need to revitalise Test cricket", he said on Big Sports Breakfast radio on Wednesday.

Some also feel that India's refusal to play a day and night Test is because they are scared they might not register a whitewash over Australia, given that the hosts have won all their pink-ball Tests so far and have looked dominant. Why is the BCCI unconvinced by the day-night format, and why are Indian Cricket Bosses unsure about the day-night format of the Test cricket? Indian cricket board started to accept the ODI cricket format, almost after a decade, when the first ODI was played on 5 January 1971 between Australia and England at the Melbourne Cricket Ground.
