    It's an example of how the game is already in favour of the batsmen because of the amount of flat pitches out there - Tests and ODIs. So Twenty20 would not really be "dementing cricket from essentially what it should be" any further.

    yes it does.

    The game is designed for the crowds and attracting new supporters to the game.

    One of the biggest problems attracting new supporters to the game is the length of time the game lasts. Those who are bought into the game love the battle between batsmen and bowler.

    Attracting new people to the game comes through batsmen, and not a batsmen grinding out a hard fought century to bring his team back from a 250 run deficit on a dodgy wicket to give his team something to bowl at in the fourth innings.

    They want to see sixes and big hits, and big swings - baseball style.

    As a bowler, a don't want to have four overs at a batsmen. That requires just putting the ball in good areas and hoping the batsmen misses. There's not really any planning for a bowler and a big chunk of taking a wicket is luck - will the batsmen connect or not.

    But in the longer form, it's much less about luck. It's about setting a plan to a particular batsmen and working to that plan. About getting to that 6th over when you start to the feel the pain and fatigue kicking in, but still pushing on to that 12th over when your not absolutely rooted but your captain just wants another 2 or 3 overs out of you because you haven't strayed from your line at all.

    I don't like looking into the fixture book and seeing we've got a one-dayer next week as opposed to a two-dayer because i know i'm only gonna be in the game for 10 overs at the very most.

    I could understand the bastmen enjoying 20/20 cricket. Come out and try hit as many sixes as you can, if you get it well whatever, there's gonna be another game 2 days down the track.

    having played 20-20 a few times now, clearly it favours the batsman, as illustrated by the fact that the batsman less responsibility upon his shoulders. if he goes out, then it matters much less because there are only 20 overs for the team to last. the bowler is under greater stress, as he has no chance to work batsman out.

    Maybe the faster bowlers can use brute force.

    Today's game between the WI and Australia is a perfect example, particularly the battle between Gillespie and Gayle. Gayle smashing something like 14 off Gillespie's first over, including a 6 followed by a 4. Next over Gillespie comes around the wicket and bowls a maiden by tightening him for room. The following over he clean bowls Gayle after frustrating him. That is cricket! And that's only in the shorter version of the game.

    In Twenty20 cricket Gillespie would have only bowled 2 overs before leaving the attack.

    They should give the bowlers pre-shined bowls that are reverse swinging for the 20 over stints, that would even things up. Yorker central!

    Rubbish, you'll see most bowlers bowling straight through their 4 overs.

    4 overs still isn't enough.

    Most plans when bowling go on a 7-10 over basis. Sometimes they suceed, sometimes they don't and you have to come at them again with another plan. Sometimes you get lucky and you get them out earlier than expected. Sometimes you fail completely and the batsmen goes on to make a big hundred-plus.

    Some bowlers walked away with crazy stats in last years Twenty20 Cup, there were more hat-tricks, figures where bowlers had more wickets than runs conceded, and the spiners had more success than expected. A lot of the bad press Twenty20 gets is from people that have hardly seen the format in action. And those that have had made up their minds before they had even seen a ball bowled.

    Its a new form of limited overs cricket that is going to take off big time. Test Cricket will always be the proper form of the game but Twenty20 will bring a whole new audience to Cricket. Its good for the sport.
