Test cricket is still the best - comments from Jayawardene, Kumble and Ranatunga

Source : cricinfo

Jayawardene: "As cricketers, the ultimate challenge for most us is Test cricket. Twenty20 cricket is a different challenge, so is one-day cricket. Test cricket is where the cricketers are really tested."

Kumble: "Test cricket is here to stay and players really feel privileged to be a part of it. Personally, I remember most of my milestones achieved in Test matches. As cricketers we value Test cricket more than any other form. This series obviously will depend on how the media portrays it."

Arjuna Ranatunga, the chairman of Sri Lanka Cricket's interim committee: "It is very important to protect Test cricket. That has been my view from day one. When it comes to Twenty20 it is more of a business. You need Twenty20 to get more money but ultimately you've got to realise that Test cricket is the major concept."
