    Rank your favorite type of cricket

    Rank the different forms of cricket in order from most enjoyable (to you) to least enjoyable. Lots of debate on the issue currently, and I'd like to get people's opinions.

    Test cricket - Better than what I imagine sex to be like
    Twenty20 - Thrilling little thing, isnt it?
    ODI - Still enjoy watching it, but I prefer the otehrs To Be Honest

    1.Test cricket - because it fluctuates so much. You can score 551 in first innings and still lose.
    2.20/20 - great fun. Too short to be boring even if one-sided.
    3.ODIs - brilliant when eciting, the problem is when team batting first scores too many (or too few!) and the match is a formality (Jo'burg 2006 not withstanding)
    Ian Botham, Freddie Flintoff, Kevin Pietersen, Brian Laudrup, Gazza and Daniela Hantuchova....a fan of you all FOREVER!!!
    Can't wait to see Australia field a crap leg-spinner like Hollland or Hohns again.....
    Congratulations to Daniela Hantuchova on her 3rd career title....
    Bob Woolmer 1948-2007..farewell to the best coach England never had...

    Tests are the daddy.

    Twenty20 is what ODIs should have been.

    Nothing more irrelevant to me than ODI cricket.

    Im sure people love them as they have grown up around them and are accustomed to them, and Im sure they hold a particular charm to many.

    However, they dont do anything well. Test is the real deal and 2020 the aggressive type. ODI a poor mish mash of both

    Tests are indeed The Daddy.

    There's very little in the sporting world that compares to a Test where, going into the final session, either side can win, having slugged it out mightily for almost 5 days.

    For example, the 2005 Ashes was like having three Ryder cups in the space of two months.

    After Tests, I still like ODIs. I don't like Twenty20 slogfests.

    For me it's more a case of Tests=ODIs > Twenty20, but I voted Tests > ODIs > Twenty20 because if push-came-to-shove, I'd probably rather a good 5\6-Test series to a good World Cup. I don't remotely enjoy Twenty20, perhaps because it was invented after my love of the game of cricket was already established. Had it been invented in, say, 1991, things might be different. On the other hand, they might not.

    You don't - it was a pretty off-topic comment.

    Was just saying congrats on becoming a Staff Member - long overdue IMO.

    Test > ODI, but I like ODI's heaps though, just like Test's much, much more. Twenty20's are dire.

    Tests, then daylight, then ODIs. Then there is a chasm equivalent to the gulf between distant galaxies. Then 20/20.
