    I was discussing this with a friend today.

    In the past, if you looked at just four teams, you had these super stars in action in the same era.

    From Pakistan, you had Wasim Waqar, Inzi Muhammad Yousuf
    From India, you had Sehwag, Tendulkar, Dravid, Ganguly
    From Australia, you had Ponting, McGrath, Shane Warne, Gilchrist
    In South Africa, you had Kallis, Alan Donald.
    You had Ambrose and Walsh and Murli etc.

    And all of sudden, they are all gone.

    Who do we have now? Kohli? And perhaps Andre Russell?

    It looks like cricket has change to a point that it’s left to only one philosophy “Put in the over-worked lethargic bowlers, see the ball and hit the ball”

    It’s not easy to really become a hero now.
    Everyone is a (watered down) hero today or perhaps none actually is a hero of THAT caliber except for a couple of players?

    New rule changes have destroyed this game totally, there is not balance at all in between bat and ball.

    As I said in another thread, entertainment aspect but whats the fun all the rules supports batsmen? Whats the fun in seeing bowler going back to his run up markers only to get hit out of the park?

    I literally dont enjoy this run feast at all anymore (in fact I never liked it in the first place) and I question those who still want to see it.

    Said it before. The overall standard of quality is gone down. Very few Premium quality players around.
