i have to agree with tigers_eye.
i cannot for the world of me understand some people's infatuation with 20-20 cricket. real cricket fans should know better. the masses will jump for it cuz it provies cheap transient thrills.
in my opinion, comparing 20-20 cricket to tests (and to a lesser, but still relevent extent ODIs) is like comparing a one night stand with a hooker to a (happy) marriage.
Cricket cannot live with the mistaken belief that people want to see big hits. People like to see goals, but no one is talking of moving the goalposts a metre wider either side. (Harsha Bhogle)
