Most matches will not be 'test' matches these days, and various modified versions of the game, designed to finish in a day, have been marketed in recent years to try to improve the amount of interest in the game from millennials. Hardcore fans will be rather sniffy about these. The Packer Cricket Circus (as the British press invariably called it ) in the 1970s was the start of this trend, and while Packer's venture did not endure many of the innovations he started did.
