In the context of Cricket Australia’s decision to increase the no of matches in the Big Bash League (BBL), Shane Warne took to twitter to express his frustration. Warne believes that Cricket Australia must keep the greater good of players in mind and consult all the concerned stakeholders before taking significant decisions.

The 2017-18 edition of the BBL was expanded from 35 to 43 games, where eight teams played 10 round-robin games ahead of the knockout matches. In a recent development, CA has decided to further expand the league from the next season which would lead to an increase of 16 games, taking the count to 59 games per season.

Warne was replying to the former Australian pacer Rodney Hogg, who had accused the Australian board of having ‘lost its cricket sole’.

Warne did not stop at this and urged the board to get rid of its ‘greed’.

One of the greatest spinners that the world has ever seen, Warne is one of the most outspoken Australian cricketers. He had recently criticized the manner in which the entire ball tampering controversy was dealt with, ending in a row of suspensions of the involved Aussie players.
