Cricket as they say has now become quite a batsman’s game specially after the introduction of T20 cricket. The batsmen have invented quite a few new strokes which even the coaches would never teach you in order to make some runs of every delivery they play owing it to the need of the hour.
The grounds have become smaller, the boundaries have been pushed in to make them smaller as well as the new generation likes to see more boundaries and sixes and thats what drives the crowd these days. Is that good or bad is for another blog but Cric Crak is just stating how it actually is these days.
The players have also also developed a lot of muscle power with so much focus on weight training and to top it off they used bats with a much increased size width size. The pitches have also become way flatter than before with hardly any swing or bounce and thats why bowlers like Starc , Rabada and company are regarded right up there.

Dhoni read the length early, converted it into a full toss and smashed it out of the park for a 112 meters gigantic six!
