Going forward, lesser and lesser countries will play longer formats: Haroon Lorgat

In this news, we discuss the Going forward, lesser and lesser countries will play longer formats: Haroon Lorgat.

Former ICC CEO Haroon Lorgat believes T10 could be an “ideal tool” to globalize cricket, as teams wishing to play at longer formats will become “less and less”. Lorgat believes cricket’s new baby T10 who can ‘recover in 90 minutes’ can do wonders, especially for women’s play, as the International Cricket Council (ICC) considers cricket’s entry into the Olympics .

Lorgat has been appointed “Director of Strategy and Development” to lead the growth and development of 10-over cricket around the world by T10 Sports Management. The company is hosting the Abu Dhabi T10 event, which runs from January 28 to February 6. “In the future, smaller countries will play longer formats. More and more countries will opt for shorter formats, ”Lorgat said at a virtual media conference on Monday. So how does he think T10 will grow unless ICC introduces international tournaments? “ICC has already sanctioned the T10 format. I plan to meet my old friends at ITC in a few days and see what can be worked on in terms of a development tool. “T10 can work wonderfully for the development of women’s play. It can be an ideal format for the Olympics because it ends in 90 minutes just like a football match, ”Lorgat said.

Lorgat believes that as Sri Lanka Cricket (SLC) launches its own T10 tournament, other nations will follow. “The faster people embrace the format, the faster it will grow,” Lorgat said. The pitfalls of another shorter format are the tendency of corrupters to take more interest as the T10 league had seen in previous years.

“We would be naive to think that no cricket match is at risk. But that said, the organizers of T0 have done very well to keep the integrity of the game intact. We can never let our guard down, ”Lorgat said. Shaji Ul Mulk, Founder and Chairman of T10 Sports Management, said, “We have zero tolerance for corruption. To keep the game clean, we have outsourced the ICC Anti-Corruption Unit (ACU). “We even removed team owners at the slightest suspicion of fault.” Mulk is confident that Lorgat can use his good offices as a former CEO of ICC to create multiple T10 properties in different ICC member countries.
