I agree with SS, Raynman, Dr. Z and Blah here. No one is disputing that Tests > T20s, but the latter WILL grow in popularity and overtake ODIs; and it should - ODIs are useless - there should really only be two versions of cricket, the other one being, of course Tests.

But it doesn't matter what you or I think of T20s, what matters is teams like Ireland and Zimbabwe will soon excel and surpass us in this format if our players don't start giving a damn. Besides, when you wear that Bangladesh uniform, especially in an international match recognized by the ICC, you can't not give a damn. It's disrespectful to the fans, the game and to the players and staff themselves.

Losing once in a while is OK when you're winning while sitting at the bottom of the table. But the blatant nature of the damn-care attitude displayed by our players yesterday was no less than shameful.
