Time to accept, T20 is the mainstream cricket – Muttiah Muralitharan

Sri Lanka cricket great Muttiah Muralitharan has said that it’s time to accept the dominance of the shorter format of the game. Muralitharan, who is the only player in the world to have taken more than 800 wickets in international cricket, said that the players have shifted their focus from test cricket to T20s as they now consider playing leagues like “IPLs as an achievement.”

Muralitharan also said that T20s indeed are the main format as it has money and glamour. “It’s not a gentlemen’s game anymore, it’s about careers, and players have every right to go for it in a justified manner,” he said.
