T20 is a threat – Javed

Weekend Argus (Saturday Edition) - - SPORT -

FOR­MER Pak­istani in­ter­na­tional bats­man Javed Mian­dad has that warned lu­cra­tive Twenty20 leagues were “a virus” which threat­ened to kill off Test cricket.

Mian­dad said the leagues of­fered such good money that play­ing in­ter­na­tional cricket – par­tic­u­larly Test cricket – was be­com­ing less at­trac­tive.

“Twenty20 cricket is a virus and if the ICC doesn’t re­strict matches of this for­mat it will fin­ish Test cricket as lead­ing play­ers will no longer want to play for their coun­try,” he said.”I sin­cerely pray that T20 cricket is re­stricted, oth­er­wise the game will suf­fer badly.” – Sapa-AFP
