It doesn’t get better than this. Last year’s match – when it was held for the first time – lived up to expectations.Says Walsh, former West Indies captain: “I am delighted to play in the international indoor matches at the Millennium Stadium. I have fond memories of playing Test and county cricket in England – but not the time spent in pavilions waiting for the rain to stop. Indoor cricket guarantees action for players and fans alike, and is an exciting way forward.”Exciting or not, the shorter version of one-day cricket is certainly gaining popularity. Each game lasts approximately five hours and in power cricket rain never stops play.
