(Antigua Observer) Former West Indies fast bowler and commentator, Michael Holding, is holding to his longtime views on the shortest and most entertaining format of the game, Twenty20 cricket.
Nicknamed the “Whispering Death” due to his quiet approach to the bowling crease, Holding, while speaking on the Good Morning Jojo Sports Show, said his views on the format have not changed.
“Anybody can be successful at that thing because that doesn’t test anyone’s proper skills. You can go out, swing your bat for 20 balls, get 35 runs and somebody comes up and pats you on the back and tells you that you have done well. You have done well in 20 balls? That’s fine for that form and people may enjoy it and all that but I don’t see how that could be considered cricket, so I am not interested,” he said.
