    It disappoints me that they've found a way to get fans along to Domestic cricket matches, get a bit of money in, and now the ICC jumps in and will probably dilute the crowds they get to the domestic Twenty20 games as a result.

    Even if the novelty of Twenty20 games would have worn off eventually on the domestic circuit, it smells like one of those TV shows where the hero comes up with this awesome idea, and someone else takes the credit, and all the rewards that come from it, from him.

    What a load of nonsense. It's a natural progression for the format just as it was for ODIs several decades ago. Occasional international games do not dilute the crowd, especially World Cups that are every 4 years.

    But when they are playing 50-60-100 Twenty20 international games a year, I'd be surprised if the crowds keep coming.. Especially when they start chucking teams like Bangladesh into the mix

    But they're not playing that many, or anywhere near. I don't think that number of domestic games has particularly stopped the crowds attending domestic rugby or football fixtures. I don't see internationals being particularly different and in cricket they'll never play that many Twenty20 games anyway - it's just not feasible.

    And also, Bangladesh might actually pull of an upset more often than you think. They can already pull an upset from time to time in ODI, this will suit them even more.

    The shorter the game, the greater the chance of lesser-teams winning out. Its hard to keep up with Australia for five days and 450 overs, but for two sessions of 20 overs each? Yea, you can do that.

    And thing is in the 20/20 format spinners are often quite effective and so might suit the bangladesh attack better.

    Not at the moment, but when the ICC gets onto a moneyspinner, like Pro20, where do you stop them?

    I'm just surprised the BCCI are so anti Pro20, after all, money seems to be their primary consideration, or maybe i'm just over estimating it's earning power..

    50 overs lasts longer than 20 overs.

    Hence more advertising occurs during 50 over games.

    Scaly, you're completely entitled to disagree with something (obviously), but do you have to call it a 'lod of nonsense?' Couldn't you just be nicer and say 'I disagree,' or just simply launch into what you're going to say?

    It was a load of nonsense, if you want to faff around with that diplomatic crap on a web forum then fine. I'll stick with telling it as it is thanks.
