Bazz admire that T20 cricket should be played for internatoinal levels and majorly in the world cups, reports Daily Mirror.
Bazz currently playing in CPL T20 for Trinbago Knight Riders also admitted you can’t just be a “gun-for-hire” and hope to succeed.
Another who agree with Bazz is Ian Botham, He said: “I think the last World Cup really put 50-over cricket back on the map. Test cricket is king in my eyes, and T20 is the icing on the cake, not the main event.
“I’d go so far as to say perhaps T20 cricket should only be played at World Cups internationally and then the rest in club competitions around the world,” said McCullum. “Test cricket as the pinnacle is something we try to instil in New Zealand. The T20 leagues are a result of the hard work you’ve put into international cricket and I think some people lose sight of that sometimes.”
Brendon McCullum himself famous for T20 cricket and he was second highest run getter in T20 cricket followed by Chris Gayle.
In this year Bazz are link up with 4 teams for different T20 tournaments around the world. Brisbane Heat in the Big Bash League, Gujarat Lions in the IPL, Middlesex in England and now Trinbago Knight Riders in the CPL.
“It has been interesting coming over (to England) because it has confirmed to me that you can’t just be a ‘gun-for-hire’,” he said. “You can’t make a proper impact in two weeks, you need to be with the team for a longer period of time, immerse yourself in the competition totally and the culture of the club.”
“If you bring guys in for a couple of weeks to boost the profile, I don’t think it helps anyone. I’m working with Middlesex to see how we can make it work for longer, for three or four years to immerse myself with them, so that becomes your club.”
But both are agreed on this statement because if T20 cricket continues playing the way it goes now it would be dangrous for Test Cricket, ODI Cricket and even for the nation sides.
Because as we have seen in Football so many players got retirement from international cricket to play in the league play around the world and earn more money.
So it T20 continues play like it was started now days it seems like Test Cricket feature are in danger.
Recently most of the cricket country have started leagues and in this leagues players participate from all around the world.
Here are list of few T20 leagues countrywise.
- India – Indian Premier League (IPL)
- Australia – Big Bash League (BBL)
- England – NatWest T20 Blast
- West Indies – Carrebian Premier League (CPL)
- Bangladesh – Bangladesh Premier League (BPL)
