With lot of controversies and issues, Indian premier League’s T20 world cup event was held in South Africa recently. In that, the head Lalit Modi introduced an innovative ‘Strategic Break’ in between the innings. Again it attracted many controversies. Moreover, players also argued that it hampers the momentum of the match. However, Lalit gave reply that it is not an innovative break. It is adopted from other games like Basketball events.
