When Ajith Kumar predicted T20 cricket’s fate

Trade analyst Ramesh Bala shared a small clip from Ajith’s old interview where he was heard saying, “I guess it's all about TV viewership. I mean look at sports in America, it all revolves around television. All the games played or anything is within that three hours. Why is T20 very popular today? It's three hours. Today people don't have the time. Yes, cricket started off with a five day test and it came down to one day and now it's T20.”

The Varalaru actor added, “And I think T20 is the future of the sport because people with lifestyles changing over the last 10 years, people just don't have the time. Everybody's ambitious. So I think this three hour span, the attention span that people have is just fine. Anything more than that, I don't think people have that attention span. I mean they start to deviate.”
