Calling the India-New Zealand Test match at Indore a good experiment, BCCI President Anurag Thakur on Saturday said the process to take the five-day game to smaller cities will continue.

"We have taken an initiative to take Test matches to small cities. The decision to hold the same in Indore proved right. In future also, we will take it to such cities," Thakur told PTI just before the commencement of the third and the final India-New Zealand Test Match at Holkar Stadium.

For the first time in the history of Indore, a Test is being played here.

The BCCI chief also praised the efforts of
Madhya Pradesh Cricket Association (MPCA) in conducting the Test.

"MPCA has done a wonderful job," Thakur remarked.

"We are thankful to the people of Indore for showing so much of enthusiasm for the test match between India and New Zealand," he said.

The cricket body, in its Annual General Meeting in November last year, had granted Test cricket status to cities like Indore, Pune, Rajkot, Vishakapatnam, Dharamshala.
