Cricket boards across the globe are considering to play simultaneous series to make up for the lost schedules and if it takes shape, Mark Wood would opt for the longest format as he feels Test cricket is the best.

The 30-year cricketer has only played 15 Test since his debut against New Zealand at Lord’s. He was also a member of the World Cup Squad that won the first ODI World Cup for England.

ECB plans to stage a full-international schedule

According to a report by PTI, the ECB is planning out to host a full international schedule despite the delay in the domestic fixture and thus the Board would have to field separate Red-ball and white-ball teams to make up for the lost time and schedule.

After an elongated lockdown, it will be difficult for players to come and play such congested schedule; they need time for training and recovery which would make separate teams a necessity for different format, reported PTI.

Notably, a group of England bowlers have returned to training last week and will be joined by wicket-keepers and batsmen soon to make the group count 45.

I’d love to keep my momentum going

The English pacer, Mark Wood further added that he would love to start his game from where he left it out due to ankle injury. Wood played his last test match in January against South Africa at Johannesburg before sustaining an injury.

“I love playing for England in any format, I’m passionate about playing for England, but with my last Test match where I did so well I’d love to try and keep my position,” Mark Wood was quoted as saying during Sky’s Cricket Show.

The seamer has had a staggered performance in January’s test against South Africa where he had got nine Proteas batsmen out for 100 runs. Remembering the performance Wood said he would love to keep the momentum going on with his performance.

“Coming off a man-of-the-match performance I’d love to keep my spot and keep that momentum going,”

added Mark Wood.
