The ICC is mulling over doing away with the tradition of toss in Test matches to take away the advantage home teams exercise by preparing extreme wickets that suit their strength thereby leaving visiting teams not even in a position to put up a respectable fight that makes matches a boring prospect for viewers and spectators alike. The tradition of the toss in Cricket is so famous that kids and children who play a game of cricket in any part of the world try to imitate tossing a coin and deciding who will bat or bowl first.
Removing the coin toss from Test Championship matches will be one of the issues up for discussion at an ICC cricket committee meeting later this month.
"My solution to ensure the best possible pitches is, at worldwide level, to do away with the toss, with the visiting side given the option of whether they want to bat or bowl". In both instances, that does Test cricket no good at all.
On the other hand, former India spinner Harbhajan Singh had a completely different approach towards the matter and he believes that India should embrace the new form of Test cricket.

That iNext too, will sit on a modular platform - BMW even says "if that sounds a bit like Lego, that's roughly the idea". The automaker has also confirmed the iNext will offer Level 3 self-driving capability in certain highway situations.
India will play England in three T20s and three ODIs before the five-match Test series in order to be well prepared for the longer format.
Numerous others, including Ricky Ponting, Michael Holding, Ian Botham, Shane Warne and Steve Waugh, have also endorsed the idea. It makes for good tension, everyone is focused on that coin when it's in the air and the winning captain's decision and so on. You need to prepare with red ball as well along with playing white-ball cricket.
If reports filtering out from ICC parleys have flavour to it, this step could well be taken to level the playing field by allowing the visiting captains to decide what they want to do before a match commences. "I don't mind that, I think that's not such a bad thing", Waugh told SEN Radio in 2015. "I firmly believe Australian cricket has a wealth of talented players in its ranks right now, and I look forward to watching the team continue to go from strength to strength in the years to come".
The English experiment in 2016 resulted in changes. The average score for the second innings of a match was 343, up from 290 in 2015.
