The end game has begun for international cricket
Former Pakistan batsman Ramiz Raja, writing in the Dawn, says that a majority of players around the world are treating international matches as a springboard to be picked for a T20 league.
The lack of expression from the players when it comes to international cricket is understandable. It stems from flawed governance and skewed distribution of resources. The selection inconsistencies and low income sharing of the produce with the players, who have significantly contributed towards it, makes it a fractious environment. With meaningless international contests taking shape in front of empty stands and formats being allowed to eat into each others territories, it is building up towards a fantastic recipe for disaster!
