    Icon4 20 overs vs 15 overs

    Do you think 15 eight ball overs would create more intensity and excitement than the normal 20:20 format?

    I was going to say that it would probably result in an equal level of intensity and excitement, which would be "zero".

    However, as it's your first post I'll simply say welcome to the boards. Good to have you around.

    No problems. Not a fan of the short game at all to be honest, I struggle to even think of it as cricket. But that's just me - there are plenty on the boards here who don't like Twenty20, but equally there are plenty who do.

    I like it but think it needs a revamp.

    I think One-dayers are as short as Cricket matches can be without making it a bit of a joke - changing it around so much.

    Nah, he goes on about ODIs more than Twenty20s TBH. Only ever seems to mention them when Dravid and "Kalies" get brought-up.
