Melbourne, Jan 31 (ANI): Legendary left-handed batsman Neil Harvey, 85, has little respect for the Twenty20 cricket that bears scant resemblance to cricket as he knew it.

He made it clear that he is not a fan of the shortest version of the game.

Asked his opinion of the techniques executed by the likes of Victorian all-rounder Glenn Maxwell - the reverse sweep and the ramp shot - Harvey said he couldn't possibly do them himself, and added that's not skill, but pure luck.

Harvey played 79 Tests, scoring 6149 runs at 48.41 with 21 hundreds. He captained Australia once, winning a Lord's, and served as a selector for several years.

With Arthur Morris, 92, Harvey is one of only two surviving members of Bradman's Invincibles, News.com.au reports. (ANI)
