    Only due to bollywood stars not for cricket. it is all about money making process. No body takes interest in game.

        Exactly! Cricket is an interesting game and quite an addiction.

          I second that. Watching a 50 over game brings an excitement itself and by shortening the game to 20 overs cricket just got more interesting.
