Cricket is a most famous and passionate sports of the India followed religiously by majority of 102 billion Indians. Cricket is a most famous outdoor game played in India on national and international level. It is a passionate game of India played with a bat and a ball. There are two teams of the cricket each of them having 11 players. It is played for a very common aim of getting maximum scores and number of runs by both of the teams. The team wins who get higher score in the end of match. The game is played in the centre of the ground on the area called a cricket pitch. It is played in the big open space and well maintained field from wicket is 68-58 m and small circle of main playing field is 2.64 m.
I started playing cricket when I was in school and still enjoy it. The ultimate fun of cricket is to outdo the opposing team in those 20 overs.
As a self described impatient man, I dont have time to neither play or watch the longer version of the game. That is the longish test match which is a five day affair or the one day international which is 50 over affair but lasts for a full day.
However due to my busy work schedule and lack of dedicated time I have been following and playing Twenty20 cricket since 2006. I am an avid follower of world Twenty20 games including the world cup, the IPL league and the Champions Trophy.
I love the fast paced action, the short time which decides whether a team loses or wins and the heart thumping action in the middle. Over the years I have grown fond of the mini cricket variety as it suits both my time, resources and budgets.
Now I get to hear that a new cricket league is in town. I put forward my views on the new league. The new league #EkNayiLeague has already found backing from the cricketing legend, Kapil Dev.
We need no introduction to India's greatest fast bowler and a instinctive striker of the bowl. I still remember his heroics in 1983 when he single handedly hit 175 not out in England against Zimbabwe to take India to the semifinals of the Prudential World Cup 1983 which we went on to win.
With Kapil's backing, I have no hesitation in supporting the new league provided it makes certain changes to it unlike the IPL league which has now become sort of khichdi cricket.
I would like the #EkNayiLeague to have dedicated players per team with fixed tenure of 5 years or 10 years per team without any poaching and auction. I think the auctions held every year make the cricket game a crass commercial enterprise. A player who is x team in one year is playing in y team in the next.
This leads not only to the player being just a formality in the team but also makes us viewers make apprehensive about the players loyalty. I hope the new league corrects this tremendous error in the current leagues and sets a fixed tenure per player.
Other things I would request is the in game features. The power plays and all really suck. The game should a open ended one with all teams enduring hardships to play some of the best cricket in the world.
If the game is made a truly equal competition sport with best result oriented game play it will be the next new champion of cricket worldwide.
