Cricket in the Fast Lane: Politics of Speed
by Vidya Subramanian
Economic & Political Weekly, 2012, 47(50), pp. 21-24.
Abstract: In the shift from test matches to one-day and then to Twenty20 formats there has been a profound reworking of the internal biology of cricket. The speeding up has become contingent on redesigning cricket into a "platform" which is now animated by combining hitherto unrelated elements such as businesses, advertising, technology, and even Bollywood.
