    Which is your preferred limited overs format?

    Poll to follow.

    Would be interested in people's views, I'm going to make the assumption that the vast majority of users of this site prefer Test Cricket, so I'm more interested in what your preferred format is other than Tests.

    Personally, I prefer Twenty20. The middle phase of an ODI can be mind numbingly tedious to watch, Twenty20 condenses the action in a way that's much more palatable to the casual viewer.

    Test cricket is my favourite form of cricket so I actually do not mind those middle orders. T20 is too short for my liking, I would rather watch some good quality bowling being defended off or some text book cover drives than watching Yuvrak slog Broad for 6 6's in an over.

    The color of immortality, nature and envy - you are truly a unique person. While clearly the color of nature, you also symbolize rebirth, fertility and hope in the world. On the other side of the spectrum, a natural aptitude to money with green coming to signify money and possibly even *********!

    50 overs. The middle overs can get a tad boring sometimes though.

    50 overís. Best format for being a spectator, beats Twenty20 as you have the opportunity to watch a full day's cricket, get sunburn and consume copious amounts of beer.

    Twenty20 is all over by the time you get back from the bar.

    T20 for me, depends on context though.

    ODIs. Less forced and random than T20. More substance.

    T20. As I have said many times, I am a huge fan of the format. It is unpredictable, short, testing, exciting and a crowd puller, all at the same time.
