T20 cricket tastes sweet but empty calories in it says Gideon Haugh

Popular cricket writer and analyst commented on T20 cricket and said test cricket is still alive. "T20 cricket is like empty calories and it leaves a sweet taste in my mouth but does not harm me," said the Australian author of "On Warne" and "Silent Revolutions" who was a famous cricket writer. He also compared T20 and test cricket and said that test cricket can be remembered for a period but T20 will be forgotten in a day. ‘Test cricket is mainly alive because players value it and Test centuries are still considered as a benchmark for cricketing excellence’, he said. "In Australia, the Ashes and the Border-Gavaskar trophy between India and Australia is popular too." Haugh says that we need results in test cricket as fans became result oriented. Gideon is on India tour and in Kolkata where he visited the historic Victoria Memorial celebrating World Heritage Week.
