I still hate T20, the whole brashness, lack of charm and subtlety means that it will never win over my heart. If cricket needs dancing girls for it to be a valid form of entertainment, then it is no game of mine..
BUT, I've been so glad to watch a decent spectacle put on by the ICC.. Some good games of cricket were played, and it was genuinely nice to see some non cricket fans become interested and develop loyalties with certain players and teams. It was hard not to be moved by the Indians, Pakistanis and Zimbabweans in these last couple of weeks. SA put on a show it should be proud of.. And if we have to put up with this T20 beast now, let it be for the good of the game as a whole, and with some more games like that final, please
