    There was a similar thread a couple of years ago when T20's were relatively new. I'm interested in whether opinion has swung much....

    haha.....yeah on CW it would probably be tests>ODIs>T20.

    On other forums it will probably be the other way around
    And smalishah's avatar is the most classy one by far Jan certainly echoes the sentiments of CW

    Yeah we don't crap in the first world; most of us would actually have no idea what that was emanating from Ajmal's backside. Why isn't it roses and rainbows like what happens here? PEWS's retort to Ganeshran on Daemon's picture depicting Ajmal's excreta

    With the English bid I said: Let us be brief. If you give back the Falkland Islands, which belong to us, you will get my vote. They then became sad and left

    There's a lot more cricketing skill in 50-over matches, but I find I enjoy T20Is more than ODIs. Partly because England are much better, but mostly because T20Is have more world tournaments and fewer repetitive bilateral series.
    And we still haven't walked in the glow of each other's majestic presence.

    Prefer T20 to odis.

    They've messed around with the powerplay crap too much, should've left that format alone.

    I prefer T20 to ODIs because there's less of those awful, stodgy middle bits where both teams are quite happy for the score to advance at about 4-5 runs per over and the taking of wickets is barely a consideration.

    The tweak of the powerplays is an admirable effort to alleviate this, but I still think the ICC should go the whole way and remove all over restrictions from the 40/50 over formats. To my way of thinking it'd lead to more genuine contests between bat and ball with proper bowlers sending the ball down and less of the "5th bowler" syndrome, where a captain has to cobble together ten overs from non-bowlers and the limit of his ambition is containment.

    - As featured in The Independent.

    "The committee discussed the issue of illegal bowling actions, and believed that there are a number of bowlers currently employing suspect actions in international cricket, and that the ICC's reporting and testing procedures are not adequately scrutinising these bowlers."
    - Even the ICC's own official press release thinks things must change

    totally agree. The number of overs a bowler can bowl should be at least increased to 12.
    This will definitely increase the quality of cricket as you'll see more specialists picked in place of those 50/50 cricketers..
    more proper batsman will play and more overs will be bowled by the wicket-taking bowlers..

    It won't pan out that way, IMO. Captains will look at it as an opportunity to fit in one more batsman.

    Athlai doesn't lie. And he doesn't do sarcasm either, so you know it's true!
