    And if we were to add domestic to it... (Test:ODI:T20I:FC:LA:T20)

    50-35-15, but this can drift widely.

    T20Is are almost meaningless but I have been really enjoying the WT20 and also really enjoy the IPL.

    For the ODIs, bilateral ODIs are slightly better than bilateral T20s but what wins it for me is the 50 over WC - a difficult tournament to win and not easy to fluke.

    I will say though, that the ODI version seems most at risk. Tests will never die out (despite what some doom-mongers predict) and T20 is here to stay. But the 50 over games...

    there's something about one dayers that's been turning me off lately

    the combination of the roady roads and the repetitiveness ticks me off

    only thing that kept me watching the india/aus odis was that john hastings bowled ridiculously well and entertained all series

    World Cup of course is an exception but other than that i'm not a huge odi fan
    Shady's XI:
    M Vijay || A Ali || CA Pujara || KS Williamson || LD Chandimal (wk) || F du Plessis || JO Holder || MM Ali || PJ Cummins || RA Jadeja || VD Philander ||

    Yeah this post so much. I don't really care about ODIs or T20s much at all compared to Tests, but as a spectacle I still enjoy them, and in fact on average I think I enjoy watching ODIs almost as much as I enjoy watching Tests.

    75% tests. 20% World Cup. 4% other ODIs. 1% T20 (some cricket's better than no cricket).

    Something like 60-30-10

    I can't give any a really low number because dammit I CARE about international cricket. I think T20 is crap really but NZ playing is NZ playing.

    ODIs will always matter to me (JAMODI be damned), I grew up on that ****.

    Used to be more like 50:20:1, but I've kinda started enjoying following T20, especially this season's big bash.

    I really cannot care for ODIs or T20s without any context. They either have to be World Cup games, or games being played in the build up to the World Cup.

    I used to love the IPL, but the team owners care so little about actually winning games and as a result put together horribly balanced squads. They ignore players who could perform really well simple because they are lesser known, and routinely play players out of position. The 7 Indians per XI rule I can tolerate (and actually enjoy as a strategic aspect to the matches), I just can't tolerate how terrible a job Franchise owners do in building their squads and playing XIs.

    So I guess on a regular day my ratio is something like:

    80-10-10

    But assuming I'm comparing Tests to context-laden ODI/T20s, then:

    40-30-30

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