Holding sees introspective opportunity in cricket amidst pandemic

The West Indian commentator Michael Holding identifies a great opportunity for introspection of cricket amidst the global pandemic. With the cricket not being played throughout the globe, Holding calls for scrutiny of these sports to make things better. The former West Indian feels that the administration should question themselves whether they are doing things rightly.

Michael Holding feels that the excessive commercialization of cricket is harmful and the administration should look into this matter. "Just use the pause to look within the game, to look at what has been happening with the administrators, with the players, and think: Are we heading in the right direction? Is everything okay with our game? Personally, I don't think so," Holding said.

"Everybody has just been head-over-heels charging down the hill, looking for every dollar available. But can we just pause a bit, hit a plateau for a bit and sit down and look and see if everything is fine? There is too much cricket being played, for one.", he added.

Holding further emphasized on dealing with the broadcasters, who are more willing to buy the rights of the shorter formats of the game. Post COVID-19, it is on the cards that cricket boards will opt for shorter formats to quench their money losses.
