Default BanglaCricket Article: T20, Why It’s Not Our Ball Game, What We Can Do To Make It

From being termed as ‘hit-and-giggle’ cricket to becoming the most lucrative form of the sport, T20s have wrought many changes in the cricketing world since its inception a decade ago. The injection of substantial sums of money and increased viewer-ship following the advent of T20s has caused national teams around the world to take the newest form of the game more seriously, and as Jeeshan argues, this increased professionalization and specialization in many of the top tier cricket nations has left teams like Bangladesh in its wake. This article explores the yawning gap that has come to exist between Bangladesh and other Full Members of the ICC and posits some of the methods and tactics that may be implemented to address it.

In 2002, the ECB decided it needed to take drastic measures to boost the popularity of cricket. The game was becoming unpopular amongst the younger generation, crowds at the grounds were dwindling and organizers were losing sponsorship. The ECB’s drastic measure was a fast paced, exciting, shorter version of cricket called T20. Slowly, T20 fever started spreading and soon other countries started replicating this format in their countries. The first major international T20 tournament was the ICC World Twenty20, held in South Africa in September 2007. While T20 was reviving the game in a commercial sense, there were plenty of skeptics who argued it would ruin the game - in both sporting and non-sporting terms.....

Yes, it is great analysis. Although Jeeshan wrote this up quite some time ago; it was stuck in the pipeline due to technical issues. Better late than never

Thanks Jeeshan!
