    So now what do you prefer? ODI's vs 2020s

    So i feel we have watched enough of 2020s to have an opinion over which we prefer

    i am warming to 2020s a lot... although that may not be because of the format it self... but because of this exciting IPL tournament or big crowds... but yea

    ODI's any day.

    Dont be fooled by the early crowd response to T20 in India. each venue has still only seen the inaugural game remember.

    And yesterday the crowd at Hyderabad was terribly disappointing by all accounts. The first time in the seven matches so far. No ground has yet hosted two games. Its still a novelty.

    Indians love a mela (carnival) but I doubt if they are going to go for a mela every week.

    watch this space.

    Most people on CW won't change their minds, hardly anyone has so far.

    I have always and always will find Twenty20 completely devoid of interest, regardless of anything that happens with it. I fully applaud those behind the IPL for an excellent idea and am happy for it to be successful, but I won't be taking any notice at all because the format is not something of interest to me.

    The gullible masses change their minds ATT, that's nothing new. And as pointed-out by SJS, you've got to wait a few years, never mind a few games, to assess the impact of a tournament on Joe Public.

    ODIs for me. T20 is still too much of a hit 'n' giggle game for my liking.
    The 50 over format still has time for tactics and has a place for almost all styles of player.
    Bowlers are cannon fodder in T20, I foresee teams full of James Hopes or Simon O'Donnell type players, allowing batting to 11 with little emphasis on specialist bowlers.
    The fast scoring and rock 'n' roll atmosphere will appeal to millions who find traditional (5 day) matches too drawn out and that is not a bad thing....
    30 years ago people claimed ODIs would kill test cricket but they co-exist comfortably, I think T20 will simply be another part of the cricketing future for a few years to come.

    i think recent games show otherwise...specialist bowlers are crucial.. and spinners too

    ODIs by a mile. The only good thing about T20s are the crowds and the IPL - an opportunity to see multi-internationals playing in the same team, which is fantastic.

    Only an opinion Laurrz, it's early days yet.
    I was referring to 1 or 2 years down the track.

    Twenty20 by a mile, ODIs were dead a while back. But like all middle children they can never accept their fate. "Marcia, Marcia, Marcia"

    ODI's by a long way.. I wish T20, and these tacky Indian leagues all the failure in the world.. Chennai Chihauhas or whatever. Rubbish. Give me the first morning of an Ashes test or a world cup final any day..

    Obviously Tests are King and the rest miles behind.

    However, there is a purpose to T20 that doesnt exist in ODIs. Using Richs sig, ODIs are Cunis-like

    Out of cricket (ie, four\five-day) fans who like Twenty20, there's two patterns: one the "I like anything as long as it's vaguely cricket-like"; and two the "I've always had a rabid hatred of the one-day game so I now like Twenty20 better than it".

    Of course, most Twenty20 fans are those who don't and never will like cricket. But there are a few cricket fans who like Twenty20.

    Yeah, I've always found T20 crowds to be full of people who probably don't like real cricket.. People who don't have any football to watch..

    Been to many ODI Internationals lately? Most go for occassion, rather then the cricket. Most aren't real cricket fans either.
