Should this happen on the field ???

I have seen that during 20-20 matches ( even international T20 matches), some players are interviewed right in between over or in between bowls. Is it correct ? Even though someone is at non striker's end. Should he not be focusing on the bowler, grip, minor filed changes etc rather than the interview ? Should a cover fielder not be 100% focused on the next ball instead of being on air ? This moder cricket + entertainment is just beyong my understanding.

Yes, I have seen this. It is not correct. Whether it is a batsman or a fielder, their full concentration should be on the field. In fact in one of the IPL matches, Virat Kohili missed a catch, when he was being interviewed during the course of the match. If it can happen to a young man like Kohili,just think of all the other players who are over their prime, and still playing in IPL. They will not be able to concentrate,once they start talking to the commentators in the field.

true.but even though it looks kinda over the head stuff,it actually is good. for instance,you get to hear a players real emotions and his thoughts while playing. you sometimes gets the umpire's input on condition and how happy they are about the way the game is conducted. ofcourse the commentator seems to switch off the players head piece just before the ball is bowled so they can hear what he says but he cant hear them
