Towards greener pastures?
Suresh Menon, writing for ESPNstar.com, says that the demise of the 50-over game might actually be good for cricket, as it will mean fewer matches in a year, and perhaps a greater focus on Tests.
T20 cricket is all about an individual sport cleverly disguised as a team game. Restraint of trade apart, cricket boards will soon have to deal with top players and their version of having the cake and eating it too: Test cricket for the honour and T20 for the money. The two formats can co-exist, and will need to, especially if the relationship is to be symbiotic, with T20 driving a new audience to Test cricket.
