    No thanks
    Not to mention Tendulkar's patented uppercut and paddle off medium pacers.

Imagine these lil kids watching the gamea fast bowler(Lee) runs from the 30 yard line and gets hit for a six 2 times in an over who would want to be a fast bowler and I must admit that for me hostile pacy fast bowling is one of the best sights in cricket.

    So what other pros and cons can you see from 20/20 impacting the game in the long run and what steps should be taken to minimize the damaging aspects of 20/20.
    i think this format will ask da bowlers 2 b more accurate. wich is a positive thing. i mean taking wickets in t20 is so easy. just two yorkers right in the block hole followed by a pacy bouncer nd it should make it. i mean just use the batsmen's urge of getting runs to take their wicket


    didnt u see umar gul. although we havent seen gul/gayle battle but kallis/gul hav much to tell

    i think dat afridi has startd to learn da art of building innings. and he startd this noble deed in t20 format. he has never played such silently killing innings in ODIs or tests, as he played in semi and in final t20 WC 2009.

    do u agree?

    Lee is not on top of his game right now and was not able to get it right.

    Fast bowling is not about pace only but technique as we all know (Unless its Shoaib Akhtar). Lee was not doing much with the bowl and was trying to bowl fast and thats why Gayle was able to hit him hard.

    If you look at Mohammad Amir, who also has good pace. He was pretty economical in the first 6 overs against some of the very best openning pairs. And your highest Wicket taker of the tournament is also a fast bowler who is able to reverse the ball after 12 overs.

    So i don't think T20 is killing the Fast Bowlers its actually developing them to think more and have more variety and that too with good accuracy.
