I see its a while since anyone posted on this subject. Don't know about the cricket scene in India but here in England we have been infested with that awful twenty/20 game.
You've probably guessed I am not a short form game lover.
10 years earlier and i could have been thinking differently. Why? Because 10 years back i stopped playing pro cricket as there was no exposure beyond a particular level. For getting into the Indian Team, the requirements were you either had to be from the BIG teams or have a godfather with the right contacts. I had neither.
If T20 had happened then, probably i could be smiling at you guys from big hoardings in your cities.
T20 is not all that bad, ask the small time players. Its a boon and they will retire in peace. We.. well we just need to move on with a lot of pain in our hearts.
