    a) I have been speaking about a bias towards batters which has been disputed. Not a small or big bias. And I have a problem with such a bias. It definitely shows more people believe it is indeed biased.

    b) It should be an even contest between the bat and the ball. The bowlers should always have some thing in it to take wickets. Why yuo bring fielding into this I do not know. Fielding is definitely an important aspect but if its favoured towards the batters, there isnt as much the fielders can do.

    If you feel the poll does not answer the questions, no one is stopping you from making your kind of poll. I did what I thought would give a larger perspective of people than the ones arguing here which it did.

    I didn't play anything more than 20-over matches until I was 15 and it's totally incomparable to Twenty20.
    At u15 level, 100 off 20 was still a pretty decent score.
    It's much more akin to 50-over cricket at the List-A level.

    And that's a worrying trait which goes some way to explaining the poor standard of bowling, especially in ODIs, at present.
