Yes cricket in india has lost its sheen because they rely on commercialization of cricket rather than playing cricket with professional spirits. Several cricketers have got addicted to huge paychecks rather than performance. People from political background and other bureaucrats are holding stakes in teams much hyped Indian Premier League. I think Cricket in India needs true Performance of all cricketers rather than showing of their brand endorsement. Senior and Junior Crickets should have equal contracts and paychecks, and Cricket Board should have transparency for running cricket in India. they should also utilize their money for developing vrious cricket stadium and should be on competition on par with Australia and should provide best sporting facilities and equipments for all cricketers.

No. Cricket didn't lose it's sheen in India, not only in India but also in the world. Day by day it is bring up like sea waves. In olden days no one know about the cricket but nowadays even a little fella playing and watching cricket. If you ask anyone 'What is your favorite game?'. No doubt absolutely 90% of people will say 'Cricket'.

These are few examples how the cricket is evoking. If Cricket introduced in Olympics, Cricket will dominate the Soccer. In future every country participate in cricket. Even though it has some defects it's a wonderful game.

In India also most favorite game, which many peaple show cricket game and enjoy. Our national game is hokey but they do not get popularity similar cricket game. When indian people show this game, they also get more and more spark for our brightness.Hokey is ourr national game,but this game do not get mor popularity.

When cricket is show in TV, many company give add in tv channel. So,our country get money and our company's industry also groth whicch most benifit is our country.

Cricket in India can never lose its sheen. Cricket is not just a game, its a religion in India. Even though, players run after huge paychecks and the authority people do everything to hold their chairs, when it comes to the cricket ground, everything is left behind. Players play with real enthusiasm and zeal to win the game.

We cricket fans can never insult the players and their game. Every sportsman has ups and downs in his careers. It is just unfair that we support them when they are good and tease them when they play badly. Media always keep double-crossing the sportsperson by lifting him high enough to touch the heights of zenith when he is in good form and treating him like a worm when he is out of form.

So, its a big request to the media to stop behaving like a kid and broadcast what is necessary. As they are trying to spoil the sheen of cricket in India.

Yes I agree that cricket has lost its sheen, many of our young talented players are well satisfied with name and fame (money) they get by IPL. They have nothing to do with ODI's are TEST. Another reason is our worst selection committee, they play politics rather then encourageing talented players like dravid, uthappa, and many.

In our country many of the people like cricket and crazy about cricket. But in cricket selection committee not select talent persons ex;latest Hyderabad Ranji team. So many of the talented players are missing the cricket. Today India have a test match all the best India.

I think cricket in india is at its peak. After the recent successes it has achieved in all formats i.e. has got no.1 ranking in test ,no. 2 in one dayers and hey..we are first T20 champions.attracting by the money and fame ,many youngsters even from small towns are choosing cricket as career. The captain MS Dhoni himself is from Non metro...when sachin plays whole country stops to watch him score another hunderd...Cricket is no more just a sport in india it's a phenomenon and this is also one of the thing which binds our multi cultural country as one....Certainly cricket is not loosing its sheen.

I think cricket in India has soared over the past 5 years. It has definitely not lost its sheen, in fact it has prospered and flourished, giving India a place in the world map in terms of cricket;in fact more often than not it is called the the "Cricketing Superpower of the World"!. People talk about commercialization coming into the fray. Destroying the spirit of the game!

They do not understand that the very fact that these players are being offered humongous endorsements stands testimony to the fact that they are doing well in their.

Respective fields. I feel, as a matter f fact, that, Cricket in India is getting too much of importance!We need to shift focus on other sports as well!

I think cricket in India is losing its sheen. Now players are more interested in playing IPL rather playing for their country. Frequent T20 matches has given a toll to injuries to key players of our national team which was the main reason of worst defeat ever in england recently.

I would not blame to players but to management. They don't give rest to the players when needed and I think their should be some rotation of players in the team for some specific interval of time so they get enough time for rest and new players get chance too. Players should be encouraged to play international cricket for their country but not merely for the clubs of IPL. They should be encouraged to make cricketing spirit alive. Selectors should be former players but not politicians like ravi shukla or pawar.
