Former Indian star Akash Chopra made a voice against the traditional 50 over game of cricket saying the ODI cricket has become ‘predictable’, therefore makes it rather ‘dull.’
Making his comment to BBC sport, Chopra said, “Personally I feel that one day cricket on its last legs.”
“It seems in one day cricket, there are too many boring, dull moments; there is lot of predictability regarding who is going to win and once that starts happening in a format, that become too predictable, then you know we are in trouble,” he said.
Chopra further said, “If you see same thing repeating time and time again, you will find that numbers would start dropping. People will start say enough.”
In a recent development, Cricket Australia Chief Executive James Sutherland stated, the five match ODI series would probably come to an end soon after Indian successfully clinching the five match ODI series against Australia 4-0.
With increasing number of T20 matches being played world wide, the number of one day internationals have been dropping in recent times. Where there were five or seven ODIs comprised in bilateral series several years earlier, it is now make of three or four having fulfilled the vacant spots by the shortest format of the game. 1 of 1
