Default Is ODI outdated?

From My six-point plan to improve cricket by Shane Warne -

Quote:
End one-day internationals This is a big call, but cricket evolves and the 50-over game has passed its sell-by date. It’s amazing to think that after the Ashes series England and Australia play seven one-day games, which take about a month. Sorry, but that’s just greed on the part of administrators. From now on, we should be playing Tests and Twenty20 internationals, with a Twenty20 World Cup every two years.

What that could mean in England is a 16-match championship, which produces good, tough cricket at the moment, and the same for Twenty20. And, so that players and spectators know where they stand, let’s have a regular schedule — four-day games from Tuesday to Friday and the Twenty20 on Sunday with a double header each week for TV, games starting at 4pm and 7pm.

Four-day matches should start two hours later than they do at present, at 1pm finishing at 7.30pm. The best time to play in the UK is 5.30 to 7.30, so people could come down after work for the final session. I would introduce a Championship final, played over five days, between the top side in the first division and the winner of a play-off between the counties in second and third spots.

By also eliminating one-day cricket the players would be freed up to spend more time at domestic level, grass-roots cricket and time at home with families. Test cricket is just that — a test of every part of your game. Twenty20 is the entertainment and fun side of the game and also will bring in the big revenue. Under my plan a tour would last roughly five weeks: three Tests with a warm-up game and five Twenty20s in a ten-day period. The Ashes would stay as a five-match series.

Mo bhai, I already know what would be the poll result. Bangladesh team show promise only in ODIs, so overwhelming majority here would want the format to stay regardless of everything else.

What I am looking for is some sensible discussion why or why not you will like to see ODI survive.

no, ODIs are great to watch, much better than t20s imo. warne gave a massive plug to the IPL in that article, wouldn't surprise me if they paid him to talk up IPL and talk down ODIs.

T20 will kill us completely. You are right about ODI as the best format for Bangladesh.

Shane Warne is special bowler. But we only know him for his Test success and his ODI success. Whenever I hear or see Shane's name in any news it reminds of few great occasion.
1- Test:Mike Gatting getting out and
2- ODI: That famous WC99 tied game against South Africa which Alan Donald got run out. South Africa was cruising and it was Shane Warne that changed it around. I could still hear shane screaming come on ...come on.. it was exiting, aparently that was the turning point.

In T20 I doubt I will be able to see that kind of excitement. No doubt if I was a cricketer I would love to play T20 for all the money.

To me what Warne said makes sense.

1) International calender is becoming more cramped.
2) FTP cycle is becoming longer.
3) Players are getting injured more frequently now to handle international workload.
4) Domestic leagues are losing quality as star players are hardly around to participate.
5) There is no room to increase number of Test matches.

Something gotta give. The fight for survival is now between ODI and T20I. I am betting on T20I to win it.

The invention of ODIs was necessary - kudos to Packer and co.

But ODIs have survived long enough. T20 time.

Forgot to mention - players will start to retire from Test cricket early to prolong their ODI and T20I careers if heavy workloads being kept dumped on them.

agree with Shane and Asif. ODI is yesterday, T20 is the future. One day cricket is going to be history very soon. Franchise cricket is here to stay.

I think T20's involve enough brain-work, skill, finesse and cunning and provide enough thrill and competition to take over as the "major short version" of the game.

ODI cricket - I could snore between overs 15 and 40 (irrespective of how much life aggressive cricket in general has induced into ODIs in recent times). My idea of a perfect tour: 5 hard-fought Tests, with outswingers beating the bat, bouncers finding the helmet, batsmen grinding it out to score hundreds and two hundreds, followed by 5 extremely competitive T20s - the kind of competition that other versions of cricket will fail to provide even in a 100 years.

If ODI's do get replaced by t20, then test cricket will lose quality.

Take whatever Warne says with a grain of salt. Now that he is retired and his livelihood depends primarily on the success of 20/20 and IPL, his motivation and intentions should be of question. If the same thing was said by someone else who is actively involved in international cricket and in good standing - I would take it much more seriously.

ODI is not outdated IMO - it needs some changes in its format to spice things up (like powerplay).

WTH is wrong with Shane Warne? GOD! I would hate to see the day when there will be nothing called a 50 over match
eliminating ODI? pfffffft!
IMO ODIs are awesome to watch. T20 is nothing but hitting 4's and 6's its just entertainment....if you wanna see big hitting, then we might as well watch baseball! I mean T20 wc every now and then is okay..but the whole IPL, ICL...I say a very big N O

T20 sucks compared to the 50 over game, which I believe is the best format.

but T20I is crap.. you can just smack/bang/hit. In ODI games, you need more technical accuracy and tactics to win the game. Which one is better? That's for you to decide
