Former Australian vice-captain Adam Gilchrist has warned of a Twenty20 overkill in cricket in the wake of IPL's success, saying it is time the administrators give a thought to how much more the players can take.

The 38-year-old retired wicketkeeper, who has remained in action courtesy the Indian Premier League, feels the number of matches should be regulated.

"The IPL is going bigger next year. How much further can you go? We have to be very smart with it and make sure that we monitor that," Gilchrist was quoted as saying 'The Independent'.

"I think we are very close to the limit of how much cricket we can stage in general and T20 has raced to the fore. But, this great tool we have got, let's not burn it out," he said.
