How on earth does this make sense?

From the BBC: Lord’s faces Test match rethink

Lord’s could get less than one Test every two years as cricket bosses consider the claims of other venues…According to The Daily Telegraph, it will be guaranteed a maximum of two Tests in a five-year window from 2012.

…The proposals mean Lord’s, which regularly sells out and has the biggest capacity in the country, would get a drastically-reduced portfolio from its current two Tests a summer…Lord’s, which has hosted Test matches since 1884 and can hold 30,000, is the most lucrative venue for England.
