Canberra: Concerned with the dwindling crowds for international cricket matches, former India captain Rahul Dravid said fans have sent a strong message that should not be ignored.
Dravid said it was time for introspection within the game, not only in india, but all over the world.
"We have been given some alerts and responding to them quickly is the smart thing to do. I was surprised a few months ago to see the lack of crowds in an ODI series featuring India. By that I don't mean the lack of full houses, I think it was the sight of empty stands I found somewhat alarming," said Dravid, while delivering the annual Bradman Oration at the Australian War Memorial.
