Default 30's in T20 = 50's in Other Forms of the Game?

Watched my 1st IPL game, and they had a Stat called Thirties for the Batsmen.

Some Food for Thought, I guess

Ya I just noticed it too when Shakib came to bat today. That's BS. Scoring runs in T20 should be lot easier. You can't say 30 in T20 is equal to a Test 50, or even an ODI 50.

I think it's mainly because there are lot of 30's and 40's in T20, not a lot of big score (which is not true, people are scoring 100s lately)

No, big innings in Twenty20 are much more rare than in 50 over cricket. The average score in 50 over cricket is 250, while in Twenty20's it's about 150. So 150/250 * 50 = 30 is a fair assumption.

Of course, that doesn't mean it takes the same amount of cricketing skill to score 30 runs in Twenty20's as it does to score a 50 in 50-over cricket. But counting 30's in Twenty20 cricket makes more sense because 50's are so rare.

^ That's what I was saying... You're agreeing but not agreeing...? lol

But I also said, it's not rare anymore, batsmen are scoring high 80s and 90s and 100s in T20 more often nowadays

But it's still much rarer than in 50-over cricket. In most T20 games the highest individual score is 40-45 runs. So counting 50s/100s don't make too much sense because the numbers are going to be very low. By counting 30s it's possible to reflect an individual's contributions more meaningfully.
