    Bowl-out

    Another reason why Twenty20 is dire.

    Edit: Clip, go to 1 minute mark. Lol at the celebrations as well.

    Always thought it was called a Bowl-off myself.

    it is like 20/20 is called pro20 sometimes...but is bowl-out used in any twenty20 match after a tie or just in knockouts?

    Any Twenty20 game I think, regardless of whether it is in a knockout competition or not.

    Haha - pathetic! If its a tie, there should be a replay.

    EDIT: because I've often thought that what cricket needs is some of the aspects of soccer that suck!

    What a class celebration, champagne moment for me. Ripping the shirt off and whirling it over your head while running around like a nutcase has to be a good release!

    i think penalties are the best part of soccer, the rest is just boring; except some of the tricks but boring for the most part otherwise.

    Reducing either a 90 minute football match or a 100-over cricket match to the extent that the match is decided by some glorified target practice is an awful way to break a tie and a pretty hollow way to win (I mean, you're still happy to have won, but really, it doesn't compare to beating a team in normal time/overs whatever).

    I agree with you in general about soccer btw, but that's off-topic and is going to get both of us into hot water.

    think of it like this. Nowadays it's the batman who gets most of the things, batting pitches, small grounds etc. so let the bowler have some glory and something that's a showcase just for them. A tribute to the modern bowlers with all these harsh treatment from the bat.

    Surprisingly you're right and that's a bloody disgrace. Although I can't help but feel the negative influence of the dire form of the game contributed somewhat to this.
