New Delhi . Former India cricketer Robin Uthappa believes that the ODI format will reduce in the coming times, with only T20 and Test matches being played in international cricket. He said that T10 can be a good format to introduce non-traditional countries to the game. “I think cricket is evolving and it is moving a lot, which is probably also in the direction of football which happened so many decades ago and with time you will see more leagues than international cricket,” he said. Right now, in this current FTP cycle, there is too much cricket, looks like international cricket is still there but you can see T20 as the future of cricket.
In times to come, we will see a decline in ODI cricket, and only T20 and Test cricket will come to the fore, and maybe T10 cricket as it is a great format to introduce a lot of young nations to cricket, Uthappa said. In associate nations cricket and this is where the game is moving towards a surplus of these leagues and it will sort itself out over time and it is just a process of evolution.
Currently, Uthappa is playing for Dubai Capitals in the first season of ILT20 in UAE and will be back in action on Thursday evening in the match against Gulf Giants in Sharjah. He shared his thoughts on ODI cricket on the verge of being phased out due to the growth of T20 leagues.
He said, no, I think the game is developing in that direction. But it is also the viewership that decides what is going to be more popular and what is going to grow. It has been a very natural process of development. That is why T20 cricket is coming up. I definitely believe that there will be T10 leagues as well which will come through the ranks.
