Change is inevitable and is the only constant in the world, as they say. It often takes a while to get used to because some take longer than others. Some like it, some don’t. The same is happening with the new format of cricket, The Hundred. As the name suggests, this is a 100-ball hit between two teams with some format tweaks. The tournament not only caught the eye, but also received a lot of appreciation and criticism. Joining the discussion now is R. Ashwin, Indian senior off-spinner.
The Tamil Nadu all-rounder, who is currently in England with the test squad, preparing for the upcoming five-game series against England, took to his YouTube channel to explain the format and also message the viewers who appeared to have jumped the gun.

“Those who did not understand this format vaguely commented on the frequent changes in rules and formats. For many, innovation is not encouraged and is often misunderstood. When someone shoots a film, you have to watch it in the cinema and criticize it. Making irrelevant comments even before going to the theater doesn’t work. We should appreciate the attempt and give it credit, ”Ashwin joked.

“I watched a women’s match between Oval Invincibles and Manchester Originals. Although the names were different, the game was exceptional and women’s cricket is here to stay. I would be happy if the Women’s IPL is ready to take place.
“The Hundred format has had an exciting start, and let’s see how it plays out. Many believe that this format can affect the performance of players. But I found The Hundred enjoyable, and it can be called a sports festival season. tough times, experiencing the sport live in cricket is great, ”concluded Ashwin.
