The first multilateral competition at international level was the [[1912 Triangular Tournament]], a Test cricket tournament played in England between all three Test-playing nations at the time: England, Australia and South Africa. The event was not a success: the summer was exceptionally wet, making play difficult on damp uncovered pitches, and attendances were poor, attributed to a "surfeit of cricket".<ref>{{Cite web| url=http://content-aus.cricinfo.com/australia/content/story/207248.html|publisher=cricinfo.com|title= The original damp squib|date=23 April 2005|accessdate=29 August 2006| archiveurl = http://web.archive.org/web/20071016161938/http://content-aus.cricinfo.com/australia/content/story/207248.html| archivedate = 16 October 2007}}</ref> In subsequent years, international Test cricket has generally been organised as bilateral series: a multilateral Test tournament was not organised again until the quadrangular [[Asian Test Championship]] in 1999.
