ODIs embrace all sorts of styles, paces, genres of batting (and bowling); Twenty20 doesn't.
You missed the point that virtually every English member accepts or likes Twenty20, there seems a significant correlation between acceptance of Twenty20 and how early it was adopted domestically. I've yet to see any extensively explained reasoning for the vast number of CW members hating Twenty20 but liking OD stuff. I could understand people saying it's just not their thing or they don't like any limited over stuff, but people are trying to come up with all sorts of excuses why they can't stand Twenty20 but like ODIs.
Hope you haven't been too overwhelmed by the irony in your last comment...

It is too long to be pure hitting all the way through, and too short for the real skills to shine through...
Look, I have no right to tell you what you should enjoy or not, and I personally only really enjoy Tests, but ODI as embracing 'all sorts of styles' kind of gets to me.
I suggest you start paying attention. I've seen at least 50 valid arguments in favor of the ODI > Twenty20 camp. The majority of them made sense.Originally Posted by Scaly piscine
Now, I haven't seen too many meaningful arguments from you. It's always about the haters being irrational or the haters not being English. That's not good enough.

Obviously, it doesn't do that to the extent of test cricket. You still get to see both aggressive and defensive batting, just as in tests. The balance is merely shifted.Originally Posted by silentstriker
In that format, there is no balance.
