Kapil Dev expressed his concern about the future of Test and ODI formats, gave a special suggestion to ICC

Former India captain Kapil Dev feels the International Cricket Council (ICC) needs to give more time to ensure the existence of ODI and Test cricket. The development of the T20 franchise leagues has put a serious question mark over the future of ODI cricket and there are concerns about its future including Test cricket.

The ODI retirement of England Test captain Ben Stokes due to a busy schedule has raised further questions about the future of the 50+ year old game.

Kapil said: “I think this ODI cricket will be over soon. ICC (International Cricket Council) has a big responsibility on how to save this game. It’s happening like football in Europe. Don’t play against it. It happens once every four years like in the World Cup. Do we have the World Cup and the rest of the time to play club cricket (T20 franchise)?”

He further added: “Similarly, will cricketers eventually play mainly in the IPL or Big Bash or some similar league? Then the ICC should pay more attention to it. For the existence of ODI cricket, Test cricket is assured.” .can Let’s go.”

1983 ODI World Cup winning captain Kapil was the guest of honor at the India-Australia Strategic Alliance dinner to mark 75 years of India’s independence in Sydney. He feared that with South Africa and the United Arab Emirates having their own T20 leagues early next year, international cricket might not be limited to the World Cup.

South Africa’s T20 league, which will take place in January and February 2023, will compete directly with the United Arab Emirates’ International T20 League (ILT20), which will also take place in January next year. Both leagues will operate at the time of Australia’s Big Bash League (BBL) and Bangladesh’s Bangladesh Premier League (BPL).
