    Icon1 20 - Twenty Game (India vs Australia)

    Here going to start a big war on the Mumbai stadium after some minutes. The Champions of One day Cricket vs the Champions of 20 -20.

    You can expect a wonderful match today..

    More than that, there are lot of conflicts going around the matches between two teams. So this is the best place to prove them, who is the best??

    So both of the team try to utilizes this opportunity to prove others about them. So you can see a great match in the history of 20 20 cricket.

    You can express your thoughts about the match....

    The only thing I can see in twenty20 cricket is big sweeps and then Bowled!
    Thats just the image I have in my mind about it, if it wasn't 11:30pm I would read the commentary on cric info.
    It all just is too fastward for me

    I can't agree you...

    Now the new format is a big success and every one enjoying the new format..

    All other formats are very boring and lengthy.

    By the way, India win the 20 - 20 Match easily..

    ...the paying spectator decides that for himself .

    Back in 1978, Packer and the start of the ODI's , was dismissed by the staid cricketing hierarchy as "pay-per-view cricket played under floodlights by tubby guys in colored pyjamas. And a white ball. "

    Now almost 30 years down the line, ODI's seems to be acceptable after all and we call Packer a revolutionary .

    I am not sure about you guys, but for my lifestyle this works out well. College, studies, live-in girlfriend, part-time job, etc I cannot spend the whole day watching cricket and 5 days is a luxury I dont have honestly. I am aware that you guys are experts in the game and i pick up more about the game here on this site. But I am a guy just scrotum-deep into cricket and I rather get my cricket-fix done with quickly and be buried scrotum-deep 'elsewhere'

    So come on guys discuss, fight, argue 20-20 also will ya . Stop behaving like the MCC back in 1978.

    You are very correct. If you want to globalize cricket, then this is the only format which fits to every people around the world.

    Well, some of us do - some realise he was nothing more than a typical rich-man-trying-to-get-richer and acting purely with his own interests in mind.

    What's more, Packer certainly didn't invent one-day cricket - the first game was played in 1963, 14 years before his schism.

    Because it is a bastardisation of the greatest of all games, because it takes all of the aesthetically beautiful strokes, and turns them into a 'six and out' slogathon, because it fundamentally changes the basic contest between bat and ball and reduces the bowler into a mere 'Merlin'

    in the last game, ponting scored 76 runs of 53 balls with 13 fours .
    so 52 runs came of 13 deliveries.
    so the remaining 24 runs were scored of 40 deliveries . so there have been some dot balls in there definetly.
    if you had watched , you would have noticed he was not wind-milling but played perfect cricket shots .

    Even Ian Chappel said that Yuvi's six sixers of Broad were perfect cricket shots, not slogs.
    That was in the world cup anyway.

    Yesterday Harbhajan's figures were 4-0-27-1 bowling to Hayden and Ponting at a crucial moment in the innings . One of the keys to India's victory was Harbhajan's this spell, so they say . He bowled intelligently and no he was not mauled.

    So where is this rhetoric about aesthetics and crap about bowlers. Seems like cricket to me..
