    Akram warns against haste in splitting ODIs

    NEW DELHI: Bowling great Wasim Akram and former India batsman Sanjay Manjrekar today warned International Cricket Council against rushing with Sachin Tendulkar''s idea of splitting the 50-over format, saying such a far-reaching decision should not be taken in haste.

    Amid debate that post-Twenty20, one-day cricket is on its deathbed and Tendulkar''s idea of splitting it into two innings of 25 overs each could be the answer to the crisis, both Akram and Manjrekar said ICC should not rush with it.

    R C Venkateish, Managing Director of ESPN Software India Private Limited, chipped in with data to prove that ODI popularity has not really dipped as feared.

    "This is just another idea, which was actually suggested in the past as well. So it''s surely not a bolt from the blue.
