"While it worries me T20 cricket discourages bowlers, I can see it is a good package from a commercial standpoint. It brings new viewership to the game and is a good entry level game for kids. But that said, Test cricket must be preserved. Certainly having three forms of the game is testing for the programmers," said Border.
"This is a vital period; a huge challenge to see whether the three forms of the game can co-exist," he added.
"The way the game has developed the chairman’s is effectively a full-time job and I don’t see myself in that role," Border said.
