Former India head coach Ravi Shastri has suggested that the T20 International matches be restricted to World Cups every two years to create a bigger window for franchise tournaments like the Indian Premier League (IPL). He said that T20s should only be played in World Cups.

Speaking to ESPNcricinfo, Shastri also said that the ICC should consider scrapping the T20I bilateral series to give more time to franchise T20 tournaments. In the future, there could be two IPL seasons in a year, he said.

Shastri, who was India coach for the 2021 T20 World Cup, claimed no one remembers bilateral tournaments. He suggested that cricket should go the football way, where club competitions are more prevalent and international matches largely played in big tournaments like the World Cup.

Shastri backed his opinion by saying that people don’t remember bilateral series thus cricket should go the football way and focus more on franchise tournaments, with international T20 games being played in World Cups. Each country is allowed to have their franchise cricket, which is their domestic cricket, and then, every two years, come and play a World Cup, he explained.

Speaking on the suggestion of two IPL seasons in a year, Shastri said that’s the future. It could be tomorrow – 140 games, split 70-70. The people are no more interested in bilateral T20I series, he said.

Daniel Vettori, Ian Bishop and Aakash Chopra were discussing about the future of the Indian Premier League with Shastri at the end of IPL 2022 which was featured 10 teams and 74 matches, spread over 65 days. They all agreed that the IPL was likely to get bigger.

The broadcasting rights of IPL are going to go up for sale in June for the next five-year and the value of the property is expected to increase massively. This comes even as sponsors have been unenthused by the fall in IPL viewership this year due to the bad performance by marquee teams like Chennai Super Kings and Mumbai Indians, among many others.

India middle-order batter Rinku Singh, believes it will need some more work and repetition to get adjusted to the extra pace and bounce that South African wickets give.

Rinku, who was instrumental in India’s five-match T20I series victory against Australia, evaluated the South African wickets following India’s first practise session here. When he battered here today, there was extra bounce here compared to Indian wickets, Rinku said.

The pace is a bit more, so will practise against pace bowling. Rinku is anticipated to bat at the vital No. 5 or No. 6 spot when India takes on the Proteas in the first of their three T20Is here on Sunday.

He said that Rahul Dravid, the head coach, had also instructed him to bat at No. 5 or No. 6 and simply play his natural game.

The batter said, he really enjoyed the first practice session due of the beautiful weather. It felt fantastic to get the chance to collaborate with Rahul Dravid, sir. Rinku said, he told me to keep playing the way he does and to keep believing in myself.

To continue playing at No. 5 or 6, he encouraged him. Playing that position is difficult, but he must persevere and have confidence in himself, Rahul Dravid said to Rinku Singh.

The Uttar Pradeshi hard-hitter continued by saying that he was confident enough to perform a similar role for India because he has been batting in the two important positions since 2013.

He started playing for UP at No. 5 or 6 in 2013. He has therefore become accustomed to that role. It is quite difficult to play in that position if four or five wickets are down, but he kept pushing himself to play there, Rinku remarked.

The next step is to form a partnership. Rinku said, he keeps telling himself that it’s better for him to remain calm and not react the more.

He went on to say that having fun with teammates is essential to succeeding in cricket. They are still a group of four or five players.he , Avesh (Khan), Jitesh (Sharma), Arshdeep (Singh), and Ravi (Bishnoi). They take pleasure in each other’s company, which is crucial in cricket, he said. He also highlighted how important it is to stay in shape if you want to succeed in cricket.

Along with Australia’s batting prodigy Travis Head and all-rounder Glenn Maxwell, India’s Mohammed Shami, who finished the recently concluded ICC World Cup as the tournament’s top wicket-taker, has been nominated for the ICC Men’s Player of the Month Award for November 2023.

The International Cricket Council (ICC) released a statement saying, two ICC Men’s Cricket World Cup 2023 champions and an Indian fast-bowling veteran have made the shortlist for the ICC Men’s Player of the Month Award for November 2023.

November saw Shami continuing on his incredible World Cup performance. At an economy rate of 5.68 and an average of 12.06, he claimed 15 wickets. With 24 wickets from just seven innings, he emerged as the 2023 Cricket World Cup’s top wicket-taker overall.

When Shami came at the conclusion of the first Powerplay, Sri Lanka was already struggling in a 358-run chase. He batted through their middle and lower order in his five overs.

At Eden Gardens, a concentrated 2/18 led to South Africa’s destruction. But against New Zealand in the semi-final, the quick bowler was outstanding.

He amassed 220 runs at an incredible average of 44 in five One-Day Internationals in November, including a half-century and a century.
