Varma boy gives us a lesson,

Twenty20 cricket is filled with life-and-death urgency. There are just 120 deliveries in each innings, and every ball matters. There is no space for sloppiness or error. A single mistake can shift the momentum. The batsmen have to try and score off every ball, and have no time to settle down. The demands on the batsmen, bowlers and fielders are greater, not less.

There are six sentences in the paragraph — and each no different from the other. Pleonasm as a literary device to sustain livelihoods will soon be ended when people riot on the streets for rice.
