Going through many changes to keep the thrill, Cricket has remained to be an extremely adored sport. International Cricket Council (ICC) kept making many changes including the introduction of T20I format to swell the outreach of this iconic game. With three formats in hand, scheduling has never been an easy task for ICC – an element which also bought them massive criticism.
Former England captain Mike Gatting
Recently, former England captain Mike Gatting came forward to reflect on the International calendar as he wants the governing body of cricket to improve it. The chairman of World Cricket Committee at the Marylebone Cricket Club (MCC) opined that that all the three formats need to have their respective slots so that things can be managed in an effective manner.
“I think ICC will consider rescheduling the calendar. They really need to have three slots. Personally, I do not approve of T10, yes you can play three to six games over a weekend, but for T20, 50-overs and Test cricket to survive, they will have to be regulated better,” the Middlesex born said on the sidelines of a book launch.
