Is it Me or Cricket???

April 12, 2010

Watching rain of sixes, fours and creative shorts been played in almost every over of the game. Crowd goes

Wasim

Wasim

bizerk on every single hit that crosses the boundary or are they really? I love cricket to the core, emergence of T20 and then IPL was exciting in the beginning but all that is losing its charm. I do not feel like watching these batsmen dominated games anymore.

Bowlers are treated as second class citizens, where are the likes of those intimidating fast bowlers likes of Wasim Akram, McGrath and Waqar. I miss those “I am going to kill you next ball —-” looks.
I grew up watching mean Wasim Akram, furious Waqar and accurate Mcgrath who demanded respect from the likes of Brian Lara and Sachin Tendulkar. Why it has to be all one sided? All rules are against bowlers, all pitches are made for batting.
Four hundred sixes in couple of weeks, it is going all too predictable now what is next and what International Cricket Council is going to do next? In search of new audience ICC has forgotten the real cricket followers.
