Cricketweb probably has more test cricket fans than most other forums put together and that is a good thing. I am a test cricket fan myself and I appreciate it is the true test of a player's skill. However, does it make me any less of a fan if say, Australia's WC win in 1999 gave me more happiness than some random test series win? Indeed with the increasing popularity of T20 cricket can we turn a blind eye to tournaments such as the World t20? Clearly the players and the fans do care. You could see it in how disappointed FaF was and how pumped up Kohli was. Neutral matches in Bangladesh of all places seem to have attracted more people to the stadium than one of the tests between SA and Aus recently!
I am probably all over the place here; I'm not as good articulating myself as your Burgeys and Shris but I'm basically trying to ask if a) a true cricket fan cannot love all formats or dare I say cannot love another format more than tests and b)can we continue to disregard tournaments such as World t20 in future when clearly it means so much to players and fans alike. Sure, it won't mask say, India's lack of away test wins if they go on to win this current one but surely winning it does count for something?
