    I dont think there is really such a thing as best team winning in 20/20...the better team on the day may win but all it takes is one bad day and you can go from being considered one of the best to one of the worst in peoples perceptions (eg south africa).

    Look you are more likely to get an upset in 20-20 nobody will deny you that, but Yuvraj, Mcmillan, Afridi, Vettori, you can't deny them that they've actually figured out a formula that is working for them more advanced than swing the bat as hard as you can or aim at the stumps.

    True it does require a different level of skill but if there is one thing this tournament has highlighted is that the field of teams are brought closer to each other. This could be a good thing or a bad thing, depending on how you view it.

    I don't think so, I think Australia at 100% should still beat anyone else playing at 100%, I think what looses it's importance in this code is endurace, I think the value of Kumble just trundling in keeping it in the right spot wearing down batsman is lost, on the same token the value of Kallis just waiting for the bad one then swatting it for four is lost, but then I feel it forces higher standard of play, anything but a jaffer is going to be punished for bowlers,and for the batsman any missed run is a huge deal, there is alot less room especially for bowlers.

    Don't think any sane people will think that South Africa are a bad team... they are still probably one of the most balanced team regarding 20/20 cricket... its just that they seem to bottle it when it really matters in any format of cricket.

    People score 50s/60s way more in T20s than they score 120/150 in ODI cricket. Plus, runs are far more valuable in T20.

    On the actual topic, indirectly you are trying to downplay the credibility of a game purely because your team lost, something your not used to. I've met your kind before and I know that if it were Australia lifting that trophy you would be triumphantly declaring it yet another reason why Australia was God's gift to the world.
    The difference between you and I....Denny, I already know we have many differences.

    He actually was referring to Test cricket when he spoke of scoring 120/150.

    Now, we must keep going forward, we can not bathe in the glory of a hit and giggle world cup, we should use this as a confidence booster and assert some Authority over the australians in the ODI series.
