Cricket continues to be the most favorite game of seven or eight countries. At the top were England and Australia till West Indies became a force to reckon with. Meanwhile, India, Pakistan, Sri Lanka and South Africa were vying with one another to be one among the top. Wonder kids like Sachin began to appear now and then. The birth of ODI made the game more exciting. In Indian, cricket ensures the unity of the country to a great extent!
But, with the advent of T20 and certain new rules and regulations, the game became commercial, and resembles a “Net Practice” and batsman’s paradise (at the expense of bowlers). Anyway, it is heard that steps are being initiated to recapture some of the glories of the good old days.
