Pietersen Proclaims ODI Become Dull Because Of T20 & IPL

Kevin Pietersen, the England cricket player, has proclaimed that Twent20 becomes the future of the cricket and the tournament similar to Indian Premier League that brands the One Day International cricket become bore and dull. Pietersen has unpredictably unveiled his retirement from the one-day format for England last month. 

On the other hand, Pietersen has expressed his aspiration to pursue for playing T20 going to hold in England. Yet, the England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB) didn't permit him to play the shortest version of the game due to their policy that a player would only be allowed to play T20 for England when he makes him available for the one-day games as well.

Piterson has been commended on the international cricket that took place in extreme demands regarding the players are not yet burnt out prematurely. 

"The 50-over game is the format most under threat," The Daily Mail quoted Pietersen, as saying.
"Twenty20 and the IPL are here to stay. Test matches will always be key to how you want to be rated and remembered as a player, but the entertainment package is Twenty20 cricket," he added.
"The middle overs of a one-day international can be dull. Do other players feel that way? It's difficult for me to answer but I think some have commented on it," he said.
England insist that if they had given special dispensation to Pietersen and allowed him to just play Twenty20 limited-overs cricket then other players would have followed suit, undermining their attempt to win their first global 50-over trophy.
"Would they? I've seen speculation that five or six of our players would do the same thing as me if I was allowed to play 20 over cricket, but ask them. You go and find out. I'm sure you will find out the answers. People can speculate as much as they like, but ask them," Pietersen added. (ANI)
