T10 League 2017

T10 League Sharjah 2017: The moment I heard about T10 league in Sharjah went for shocked, what’s going on!! What’s wrong with cricket?? Isn’t T20 sufficient for the shortest format in cricket?? Even we choose more than 12 overs game in a local match. But this is true; the T10 league is going to happen in Sharjah.

The world adopted T20 cricket format by looking forward more interesting twist than One-dayers, but league like T10 never imagined. However, the main reason behind the inception of T10 league is because with the world advancing, people are becoming busy, people today can’t afford a space for One-day or a Test match. Even people have no time now for watch T20 today because they think it takes even 4 hours which is ridiculous.

T10 League 2017

I read a very nice comment on T10 league from firstpost they commented so nicely please read:  “Fast food, fast cars, high-speed internet and a quick movie. Indeed this is the day and age where time is at a premium; it’s a generation that struggles with low attention span and hence, doesn’t like to wait. The best entertainment is that which comes in compressed, power-packed packages. As expected, cricket could not have been immune from the winds of change. While the charm and beauty of matches extending over five days, or even for 100 overs is valued by the purists, they just get a bit tedious for the average viewer, hard-pressed for time. And to be relevant, you have to evolve with the trends of the time.”
