Suggestions for change have been plenty and even the ICC is thinking about tweaking the format.

World Cup qualification could give ODIs context

The Cordon: Bilaterals tacked on to the end of a Test series, or hastily arranged triangulars, could gather meaning if teams had something bigger to fight for. But will cricket's major teams ever agree to such a proposition?
