The ICC must devote more resources to ensuring the survival of ODI and Test cricket, according to Kapil Dev. Trent Boult recently requested that NZC release him from his central contract so that he could play in T20 leagues and spend time with his family.

Former Indian World Cup captain Kapil Dev believes the ICC should investigate the ODI format’s declining stature. The retirement of Ben Stokes from ODI cricket to concentrate on T20Is and Tests has raised concerns among experts about international scheduling. The boards have preferred a lot of bilateral T20I series and Tests, while the number of ODIs has decreased significantly.

Trent Boult recently requested that New Zealand Cricket (NZC) release him from his central contract so that he could spend more time with his family and participate in other global T20 leagues. Boult and Stokes are two of the best match-winners of their generation, and their absence is a huge loss for the fans.

It’s following in the footsteps of football in Europe: Kapil Dev.

Dev mentioned that the ICC must take care of the management aspect and that he is concerned that the game will take a different path than football, where countries haven’t played frequently against each other. He also stated that the ICC must ensure the survival of the ODI and Test formats, and that the increased number of leagues may significantly impede international scheduling.

“I think it’s going away.” The International Cricket Council (ICC) is in charge of overseeing the game. It’s following in the footsteps of football in Europe. They do not compete against each other. It happens once every four years (during the World Cup). “Is this what we’re going to have, the World Cup and the rest of the time playing club (T20 franchise) cricket?” Dev was quoted by The Sydney Morning Herald as saying.

“In a similar vein, will cricketers eventually play primarily in the IPL, the Big Bash, or something similar?” So the ICC must devote more time to determining how to ensure the survival of one-day cricket, Test match cricket, and club cricket. For a while, club cricket is fine. The Big Bash has gone well. But the South African league and the UAE league are on their way. If all countries play club cricket, international cricket will be limited to the World Cup,” he added.
