The IPL can take a leaf out of the SA20 playbook by implementing the newest T20 league’s “innovative” rule adjustments and take the leisure quotient to a different degree, says former England captain Kevin Pietersen. He has emerged as an enormous advocate of the adjustments in that the SA20 has led to, like permitting every captain the freedom to appoint 13 gamers to take the sphere on the toss and choose their remaining XI afterwards are amongst adjustments the inaugural South African league provides.
“I don’t mind the new rules. I think the new rules are very, very good. The toss doesn’t play too much of a role. I like the innovation that SA 20 has brought to the game. I think that’s brilliant,” Pietersen stated.
“Offering bonus points is also a great idea. You can see bonus point has played a role here. I mean, you want to change the rules to make it more entertaining for everybody.
“Then why not maintain progressing. Hold altering the sport. Hold making it extra entertaining. And in addition maintain the gamers on their toes. I believe the IPL can even implement this.” The interaction was arranged by Sports18 and Jio Cinema.
Viacom 18, IPL’s digital rights media holders, is beaming the South African league to Indian viewers.
Speaking about England’s ultra-aggressive approach to the game and the success it has brought them, Pietersen said India must also look to play in the same manner.
“It is the mindset. I believe they have a coach that’s ensuring that they don’t seem to be frightened of failing. They are not anxious about failure. When you get on the market, in all probability, they do not care about getting out, they simply exit and play with out worry of failure.
“I think India should follow it. I think India bats too slowly, despite have the players. They have the players, but still. They must go out there and emulate what England are doing.
“You noticed what Australia used to do in cricket all these years in the past. Individuals began to match Australia or England, or change the best way the shortest type of the sport was performed. Even Check match cricket…” Pietersen tried his hand in owing a T20 league franchise, but could not succeed owing to a lack of sufficient funds. The batting great, though, has not ruled out owing one in the future.
“I used to be one of many bidders. Sure, I needed to purchase one of many groups. However then, you would not come up with the money for to personal the groups…
“It’s a space that interests me. I don’t know if that’s a possibility. But it interests me yes, yes.” Requested if the game can be higher off with out the ODI format, particularly bilateral rubbers with out context, Pietersen stated it’s troublesome to reach at a definitive conclusion in the meanwhile.
“We can’t say that cricket would be better off without ODIs, because we’re not there yet. But we may see it in future though the World Cup is such a valuable item, right? “In my profession, I used to be capable of win all the pieces, aside from the 50 over World Cup. We received the Ashes, we beat India In India, we received the T20 World Cup. Enormous.. I imply these are large issues which you could obtain in your profession. And I by no means received the 50 over World Cup. So it is a kind of regrets.
“So we’ll see. We’ll see where it is. Will it be good for the game? We don’t know. Will it be bad for the game? We don’t know. We don’t know yet. But can we see it happening? I think we can’t see it happening yet.” Talking concerning the shortest format, he stated it’s right here to remain, primarily due to the cash concerned, apart from the leisure quotient.
“It’s here to stay, there’s too much money in T20s. Now 50-over cricket seems like a very, very long day of cricket. I don’t think you get that entertainment in the 50 over game as much as you get in T20s. Something will need to be looked at.
“I additionally worry for Check cricket. And I’ve stated that for a really very long time that I fear about Check cricket and fear that instantaneous gratification that every one of us need might hurt Check cricket.
“(Say, for example) now we’re on an aeroplane and I’m speaking to people in three different planes in three different places, talking about work. So that instant gratification is what is actually, I think, hurting the longer form of the games. I think it’s hurting 50-over cricket in particular. And then I think that the longest form of the game.
“That is the place my fear is, as a result of I really like Check cricket. I’ve performed over 100 Check matches. And I believe that basically teaches you who you’re as an individual.”
