Scrap ODIs, says Warne

Melbourne: Legendary Australian spinner Shane Warne wants one-day internationals should be scrapped as there is enough challenge in Tests and Twenty20 internationals.

Warne"s views come at a time when public interest in 50-over cricket seems to be waning.

“The 50-overs one-day internationals should be scrapped," Warne was quoted as saying. The legendary spinner was speaking at a 'spin summit' in Brisbane.

“One thing I believe is that 50-overs is gone. I believe Twenty20 should be one form of the game, keep that to a minimum and keep it special because it is so entertaining.

"We'd then have the ultimate challenge of Test cricket and all out attacking 20/20, as the limited overs format. Also the Australian players would have more time available to play state and club cricket," he added.
