Good Morning Friends,
Hope you Guys are doing Good, This Sunday morning has been quite Different so far, not like the regular ones ,
As I woke up early in the morning and went for having a good inhale of oxygen , around 6kms of brisk walk with headphones & quality music has been really nice.
And then sat for more than 2 hours in direct sun light, it really feels good. And in between this, I thought to write to share my views about the current state of world cricket and also know your views about the same if any.
Guys Don’t you think Cricket is not at it’s very best as it has been over the years, though the different boards are trying hard to bring back the old cricket excitement back,by bringing Day & Night test matches, Pink Ball Test Matches , T10 Cricket ,100 Balls cricket etc, But still we can’t find the same what we observed during the days of early 90’s, 2k’s etc when we had the likes of super stars in every game, be it Australia ,India Pakistan or even West Indies, etc though it is always been team game but we can’t discard the personal rivilaries of the individuals, though it may be dramatically conceptualized by the media.
Even in this generation of Cricket we have superstars but the quality of cricket is not the same in all the teams,
teams like Srilanka South Africa , west indies, Pakistan, Bangladesh etc are not in their best phase of cricket they don’t have proper teams to compete in global tournaments, no matter what we bring to Cricket but it is always the players who bring the excitement, world cricket is struggling to bring the best competitive cricket only few teams are good and looks like an even teams on paper whereas remaining teams are not even good of the opponent’s B- team .
And yes we are having too much of cricket through out the years, we have T20World cups, 50Over world cups, IPL ,CPL,BPL,BBL etc with so many bilateral series which even make it overdose of cricket .
Also we don’t have Lara ,Sangakara,Murali, Akhtar,ABD,etc’s in cricket nor we have their so called replacements, as we do even watch for stars , it is not good for the world cricket as we have selective matches to watch as non one would prefer to watch a match which don’t have any contest.
And their is no other team than Afghanistan who looks prominent from the new test playing nations. Though they also need to get better, and their are only 10-12 playing nations out of which only few are good to be on head to head clash.
I strongly feel that it’s slowly loosing it’s charm though we all want it to prosper more but we can’t stay unaware of the current state of cricket.
Teams like Srilanka , south Africa, West Indies, Pakistan, Bangladesh, Zimbabwe, Kenya , etc should come back harder and raise their level of cricket to have the excitement back.
