Since the ODI format is slowly being taken over my the T20 format,i think it won't be ridiculoud to say that the format might be discarded at some point in the future.If not the near future,then definitley at some point in future,because Cricket is growing globally,and it has the T20 format to thank.
So,how about adding a football touch to Cricket?
We all know that the IPL has been a roaring financial success,and now all countries have their own domestic T20 formats,so how about having a registered T20 league in every country?Allow the trade of players across countries,like it happens in football.Have a continential T20 club competition like the UEFA champions league for example,players getting selected for their national teams on the basis of their club performances etc.I'm not taking about a 5-6 team like league like the IPL, but a proper 20 team league,with relegation,promotion,continental qualification etc..everything.
Operate everything the way it is done in football.The league operates all year long.Also,make the national teams qualify for International tournaments.
In short,follow the entire format of football,with the differnece being in the sport itself.
I know i'll get a lot of slack for this,but this could be very possible in the future.Test Cricket could become a thing of the past too,who knows?
Just a thought.Personally,i would love this. I know this is moving away from 'REAL' cricket,but the sport has to evolve and i would love for it to evolve this way in the future.
