I am of the contrary opinion that the bastard child of cricket is the ODI. That shall die off and we will be left with Tests and T20s. T20s is not just hit and miss cricket - if it were Bangladesh would be dominating the T20 leagues. You have alluded to the skills bowlers need, batsmen too need to be solid - you can't always score boundaries. To be competitive, you HAVE to learn to run between wickets. Just one boundary and rest singles or doubles - and you start seeing double digit run rates. All T20 did was cut out the boring middle part of ODIs. The test of patience in Tests will still remain.
