Minimum of 1 England cricket Test match to be on free-to-air TV per year
background
Cricket participation levels in the United Kingdom are decreasing every year across all age groups (http://bit.ly/2MmseSJ) and this can be linked to the move in 2005 to show all England internationals exclusively on Sky Sports. It's time Test cricket was protected by Ofcom.
additional details
The ECB have recently dedicated to showing 2 T20 England Internationals a year from 2020 (https://ind.pn/2LUb4iV). However, this is not enough. It is time that some England Test matches are added to Category A of the "Ofcom Code on Sports and Other Listed and Designated Events" (https://wiki.sh/zehw) with a focus placed on Australia matches during an Ashes series.
