    The Twenty20 Is Great Thread

    And if anyone thinks otherwise, why on earth do you waste your time talking about how shi... crappy it is, eh? I dont talk about AIDS all the time, so maybe you should just be quiet now youve made your point, instead of bitching in every thread. yeah?

    So, who else thinks twenty20 is a great thing?

    I don't know if its great for cricket. I'd prefer if it were just Tests tbh. I see no need to ruin the game with colors.

    But if there has to be a limited overs game, I'd rather it be Twenty20 instead of ODI.

    Yeah, its eminently watchable, have a beer with your mates, top evening out, and nicely differing skills from proper cricket, not just a pale imitation. If it is a rubbish match you haven't wasted too much leisure time, or working hours.

    Top stuff all round imho.

    Oh don't worry about him, he's a sweaty, he thinks proper cuisine is a deep-fried Mars bar.

    Yeah, I stand by the "proper cricket" comment, all limited over versions are just a bastardised version. Don't see the problem with my terminology tbh.

    Thats a bit harsh...ODIs at least do involve proper cricket and there is a lot of pressure on the batsman; also, it enables batsmen to use a variety of shots to score as many runs as possible. The bowlers also benefit from the fact that they are more likely to use more variety in ODIs rather than tests! I think thats a lot more interesting and definitely more exciting than seeing a bowler bowling the same thing over and over again and a batsman playing the smae shot all the time

    With that said, tests too has its advantages and ODIs has its disadvantages. BUT, TBH, i enjoy all formats of the game... i think its quite wrong to put ODis and 20/20 to the side and always think that tests are the most important!
