A couple of days ago, India legend Sachin Tendulkar interacted with the media, where he remarked that the fifty-over game is becoming boring and the format require amendments.
In the past year, several former and active cricketers have raised their voices in unison and stated that ODI cricket is dying, but the ICC is clear that they would treat the fifty-over game as it is.
Interacting with the media, Sachin suggested a few changes, such as reducing the game to 40 overs. The master blaster stated that the game is losing momentum between overs 15-40, resulting in the fans turning their attention to the 20-over game.
Several experts reacted to Sachin’s remarks, and the latest to assess the great man’s words is Ajay Jadeja.
The 52-year-old reacted sarcastically and stated that the young players or the current lot will not even play 40 overs, which is why the discussion about the game getting boring and monotonous is all gone.
“The players have said that we will not even play 40 overs. You talk about 15-40 overs getting boring, but the players are not even getting there. All the problems with predictability and boring are all gone now.”
Notably, Jadeja took a dig at the Indian team, who got out for 117 runs in the 2nd ODI against Australia. A total of 36 overs were played at the YS Raja Reddy Stadium in Andhra.
