Michael Vaughan and Tom Moody debate about the future of cricket on Twitter
One of the beauties of social media is that it provides a platform for sportspersons to discuss the game and get involved in a healthy debate with the lifeblood of the game, the fans. Sometimes, those conversations aren't just with fans.
In fact, the best conversations on social media, especially on Twitter, about the game is when two athletes discuss where the game is headed and how to improve it, just Tom Moody and Michael Vaughan were doing on Twitter earlier today.
Although Vaughan was busy preparing for the second day of the fourth Test between South Africa and England and Moody was involved in commentary on the final ODI between Australia and India, they still found time to talk cricket on Twitter.
It all began when Moody, the former Australian all-rounder had a few suggestions to improve T20 cricket. The former English captain then responded.
Here is the entire conversation:
It's Test Cricket that needs tinkering not T20 ... https://t.co/wBG2DFwauP— Michael Vaughan (@MichaelVaughan) January 23, 2016
@MichaelVaughan agree...happy to debate this over a glass!— Tom Moody (@TomMoodyCricket) January 23, 2016
At the end of that conversation, Moody even had time to respond to a fan, who made a valid point about the same:
A good starting point. https://t.co/9ea3xkeRNX— Tom Moody (@TomMoodyCricket) January 23, 2016
The conversation only goes to show that Twitter is not only bringing cricketers and other athletes closer to the fans, but it also helps in bringing former players together to have a healthy debate about the state of the game.
