as of now the ICC as well as the 10 full members agree with me that 50 overs cricket is more valuable, but unfortunately most cricket fans disagree.

but the real cricket is first class and test cricket. runs scored are truly earned, and wickets taken are even more valuable.

we should now turn our attention to the England tour matches and Test series and the the Asia Cup. win a few matches, push the tests at least to late in the 4th day, or early 5th, and all T20 blunders should be forgiven and forgotten.
I know where you are coming from, but T20 is here to stay. It provides the biggest rush of blood and can be fit easily into our daily busy routine. How many of us can spare a full day to watching cricket, let alone for 5 consecutive days.
