London: Australian spin legend Shane Warne has said that India should be careful in using its growing power in world cricket and ensure that the smaller nations are not trampled over by its money power.
I think its important that India — which has become the centre of world cricket — uses its power responsibly.
We dont want the smaller nations to be trampled over in the search for more revenue, Warne wrote in his column for a British daily.
Among the changes he wants to see on the cricket field, the 41-year-old, who played his last professional game Friday in the IPL, advocated a more balanced contest between the bat and ball.
On the field, the big thing Im looking for is a better balance between the bat and the ball...
No one wants Test matches where 500 (runs) play 450... We all need to play less cricket, and that way the groundsmen will have more time to prepare good sporting wickets that give everyone — bowlers included — a fair go, he said. (Agencies)
