loving this format, 2020 has come of age
I think this world cup has been very exciting and to be honest the format and the whole run rate situation has made it even more gripping to watch.
Whats remarkable is that teams have evolved in this format of the game over the 3 world cups. The domination through pure silky stroke play of Jayawerdene, short pitch bowling, brilliant fielding and adaptive spin has forced teams to look for more than just flat track big hitters. I think initially we all assumed 2020 would hardly resemble cricket in its purest form but there certainly is room for traditional cricketing brilliance through all the chaos and pace.
The 3 world cups have been awesome and have all offered something different, its been very refreshing to see good sporting wickets and pace test the opposition.
Lets hope the semis and the finals can live up to the billing.
