Christchurch: Former New Zealand skipper Stephen Fleming says too much of cricket can sometimes diminish the entertainment value of the game which, he feels, is like soap opera that people can get bored of if watched every day.

At a time multiple T20 cricket leagues have cropped up, Fleming said: “There is no straight solution. So, it’s reaching a crossroad where the cricket community had to say, ‘Stop a little bit’ because cricket too has to be entertaining.

“It’s like a soap opera — you get bored if you watch it frequently until something dramatic comes. Finding the balance is very important than saturating itself,” he added.
