Between a rock and a hard place

AFTER the West Indies were routed by an innings in less than three days in their two Tendulkar farewell Tests in India last November, Clive Lloyd said they “looked drunk” on an overindulgence of Twenty20 cricket.
“I personally believe that Twenty20 is something that brings people to the game, brings money to players and, if it’s doing that, then you have to stick with it. However, a diet of too much Twenty20 can be very harmful,” the West Indies captain through their supremacy in the 1980s told an Indian newspaper.
It is an addiction not easily overcome.
