Give me pitches that offer some assistance to bowlers for a change.
Agreed. T20s on bowler-friendly surfaces make for great contests.
These (or at least the ones we've seen in the Carribean of late - I'm not going to judge the pitches for this tournament until I've seen them) aren't really bowler-friendly though; they're just batsman-unfriendly. They don't make it easier to bowl genuinely wicket-taking balls; they just make it a lot harder for natural strokeplay. That's not a good thing.
