In last years Twenty20 comp in England about 35 bowlers had averages of 20 or under. Looking at the stats quickly looks like a wicket fell every 2 overs.
Why is it considered that the bowlers have nothing to play for in this form of cricket when the bolwers ultimate reward is gained about 4 times faster than in ODI, and for a lower average?
It would appear to me from watching the game that bowlers with the required skills of variation, line and length suited to conditions do seem to get the rewards, so why is there a perception that its a batsmans game??
