I can still get invested in it as a game. Of course it's not as complex or intriguing as Tests, but then you have to remember that we're all really weird for liking Test cricket, which is about as spectator-unfriendly as mainstream sport gets. T20 is a form of the game that's closer to the norm, but it's still a lot more complex than say, tennis, or darts, or games of WordFeud (at least one of which I tend to get extremely worked up about).
Yeah, spectator-friendliness is a thing I didn't mention. It really is a whole lot easier to watch a T20 match than a Test, isn't it.
Last May, I've visited Lord's for days 1, 2, 3 & 4 for the England - WI Test. I felt so hopelessly bereft when I left the ground at the end of day 4, knowing I had a plane to catch......, watching others buying a ticket for day 5.........
