I am really fond of playing and watching cricket. But recently I have lost my eagerness to enjoy cricket because now it seems that it has become a game of money only. Players are not so sincere for the country. They often seen wish to play in T20 game. Are you agree with me?

Well chayan, I am truly not as fond at watching cricket as you I am sure... I just know that I have friends that play and thats all I know, I like to go to the games and watch my friends play...as far as the money issues, I am sure its trying to make money like every other establishment...If its a business it has to keep up with the times...just like any other sports. Unfortunately I don't know what a T20 game is...sry

Oh its not a bussiness or establishment but it is a game in which illegal activities are done with money.And as you said what is t20 you dont know than i will tell you.It is a cricket game of twenty overs.So it is said in short t20.

i am not agree with you about this matter. because player not playing for money there have many players who played for his country his pride. thats right after coming t-twenty format cricket. players earn lot of money. like ipl tournament, bpl tournament, kfc big bash etc. but i have not lost my interest from cricket. and i like and love cricket so much.

In India cricket is not only game ,here it is like religion for cricket fans. and it is becoming more popular time by time.but it is very unfortunate that players are not taking this wives of fans.they just go for money .now it is look like cricket is some kind business where player playing the IPL T-20 matches but refuse to play tournament for their own country.

I do watch cricket and follow it...even if i'm unable to see it, i keep a tab of almost all the matches...As for players are concerned they are serious and sincere to represent their country but some or the other ways T20(here IPL/Big bash) comes in between...just like a quick rich scheme or something. Players are eager to represent their country, but they seem to favor T20 much more...good for other & sundry players who wanted to make it big by representing their country but atleast to some extent fulfill their wishes by representing some club (as they are also being recognised these days) ALso, players have a short shelf life except for a few, so they want to make earnings for a life time during that short life. Money is a must requirement..
