T20 Cricket: A Fiery Furnace

T20 cricket is a short game but long in suspense, drama and pressure. The game to all intents and purposes is a Pressure game and played in a Pressure - Cooker environment. It is a game that is merciless, exacting, brutal and takes no prisoners. Demanding all in terms of spirit, soul and body, it is ultra-competitive and akin to Gladiators in a medieval Roman Amphitheater. It is an admixture of blood, sweat and fire. The players...
