Well it turns out I was wrong. Partly. T20 does entail some skill, especially for bowling. Batsman tend become more like baseball sluggers, although anyone who can play proper shots and score runs at a quick clip is superior. Bowling in T20s requires a lot of skill, not to pick wickets but to bowl economically. I think both things are crucial to ODI success, as the game is now played.
T20 as a format is still pretty pointless, IMHO. Cricket was meant to be a long "boring" game, one that tested patience and perseverance. ODI cricket is short enough.
But I'm all for T20 entertainment as long as we don't lose focus on the bigger picture (Tests and ODIs), and if all this money can be put to good use, then I'm its biggest supporter!
