Legendary batsman Greg Chappell has warned Test cricket could lose its appeal to spectators if Australia continue to dominate.
The all-conquering Australians have been top dogs for over a decade
Chappell believes that more A-team cricket could help countries prepare and suggested an annual match between the Australians and New Zealand.
"A lot of people would say an Australia A team is expensive to run," he said.
"I think it's expensive not to, because it'll tell against you if we don't have some good contests at Test level."
Chappell has long held the opinion that an annual match between the Antipodean rivals, alternating home and away, would benefit both, because of the contrasting nature of wickets.
Referring to Australia's control of the world game, which now spans over a decade, he added: "At some stage it's going to impact on what's happening here through sponsorships, gates and all sorts of things. "
"We can't run our business, cricket, in a vacuum," Chappell said.
Cricket Australia also boasts the most innovative and successful academy, a production line for young talent.
Chappell's former team-mate Rod Marsh is striving to achieve similar results with England.
"There are very few countries that have got them," Chappell said.
"Until they do, they will continue to have the spasmodic results many of them are having."
