One of the greatest batters in history, World Cup winning Indian cricketer Sachin Tendulkar, is widely revered as one of the most excellent players to ever play the game. His record also speaks for itself; despite having a fabulous record in ODI cricket, Tendulkar recently came forward to give his take on the 50-over format.
Tendulkar opined that the use of two new balls and modern day fielding restrictions are making the game ‘boring’ and very predictable. He also reflected on the fact that the new rules are making the format too difficult for the bowlers.
“It’s getting monotonous without any doubt. There are two parts. One is the current format, and the next is how I feel it should be played. Let me talk about the current format which has been there for a while now.When you have two new balls, it eliminates the reverse swing. Even though we are in the 40th over of the game, it’s actually the 20th over of that ball,” Tendulkar said at the India Today Conclave 2023.
