I can't appreciate someone hitting three sixes in a row as an amazing application of skill in T20s, I just see someone hitting three sixes in a row. Frankly, I find the vast majority of T20s boring as bat**** nowadays. Like, they're good for two hours of mindless entertainment but then they just vanish from my memory.

    Someone hit 70 off 40. Whoop-de-****ing-do. And the simple fact that I would react like that to someone hitting 70 off 40 is the reason that I simply can't take T20s seriously.
    There's just as much risk/reward, it's just a different equation. The best strategy isn't to try to hit every ball for six.

    If you were assessing T20 in itself instead of comparing it to tests/ODIs, none of these criticisms would make the slightest bit of sense. It's fine to not like T20s but I can see why Scaly gets wound up by some of the rationalisations for it that people pull out of their holes.

    At the minute I just struggle to put up with the coverage of it. It's painfully cheesy. I'm definitely not up for voluntarily listening to David Lloyd shouting wallop.

    It's an odd tournament that plays the curtain raiser on finals day after the main event.

    Bit like when Wentworthville used to play at Parramatta Stadium before the Eels game.

    Was about to compliment our Danni on her straight drive, but she just followed it up with a rank slog to make a liar of me.

    Ooo, Dorothy from Jenny. 'Mon ladies, we can do this.

    EDIT: ****. Jinx duly applied. Why do I even bother...

    258 knockout ODIs and the team batting first has won exactly half. Cram your clichés about runs on the board, Chappell.

    As for the next match, it's really going to be decided in the first few overs of the Windies innings isn't it? Between Gayle and that annoying fuzzy haired ****er every kid in my son's under 11s team tries to emulate and can't hit the pitch.

    Well Pollard can change a game in 20 balls as well, but yes - Gayle vs Malinga is a key battle. Just hope the weather holds up really, it's looking a bit threatening.
