    Three-quarters of male international players are opposed to making all Test matches four days


    The findings come from the bi-annual survey from global players' union FICA.

    Four-day Test matches were reintroduced in 2017, but all matches in the World Test Championship are five-day affairs.

    There is also 82 per cent player support for promotion and relegation in the World Test Championship.

    The majority of players have also backed expanding the 50-over World Cup from 10 countries.
