Internet Desk: Former Team India captain Rahul Dravid has said that singles will soon be eaten up in cricket. Dravid said a lot has changed in cricket over the past decade and a half, especially in batting. It is for this reason that Dravid believes that they are not interested in taking singles soon and will try to cross the boundary every second ball. Dravid took part in a discussion on virtual policy under the auspices of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. It was in this context that these comments on cricket were made. “Cricket, like baseball, is all about numbers,” he said, adding that key changes have taken place in cricket over the past fifteen years.
In particular, he said, the comparison of players’ meanings was put aside. Dravid said that at present match plans and player selections are all done according to their data. He said that cricket was now completely turning into a batsman’s game, with one six for every two or three balls. It is in this order that the days of players rejecting singles are not far off.
