Default Useless T20s

I think T20s are bogus matches, whats the use of playing more than three foreigner players one from new zealand, one from australia, one from sri lanka etc in a single team? Like mumbai indians.
These matches creates a negative atmosphere and does nothing good to cricket. These matches are mostly deliberate laughters and injury prone.

Default Useless T20s

in my point of view 20-Twenty cup is very good and appropriate cricket to play because now a days intrest in cricket is going down an down , no one is spending time to watch a match for whole day because,players are performing unexpected so there is no enjoyment left alteast in Indian cricket . 20-twenty cup is so much entertaining even if kenya will play the match will be worth watching . Time duration of match is less and enjoyment level is more so why not a team or all temas should play only twenty-twenty and play 50 overs matches only for world cup that will be great . To play this game all player ned a different attitude . they should be attacking and always try to win the matches. the rules of this match is mind blowing , player gets enough chance to hit number of fours and sixes. Australia is my best team in Twenty-twenty tournament. I think India can also become one of the unbeaten team in Twenty -Twenty matches if they are frequently played.

But when playing country against country, like india versus australia in tests and ODIs there is a competitive spirit which makes the cricket game interesting, In T20 series the foreigner players show their skills against one another with indian teams players and it doesn't makes any sense!

Nowdays the real indian fans of indian cricket the local population doesn't show up in matches! The noise, excitement, madness....etc is nowdays missing. The IPL20 seems like many families, children etc who never used to get to watch matches in stadium are now on tv. So even sachin tendulkar is missing his crowd support!!!
Funny thing is that the batsmen batting style is similar to 1991 world cup batsmen technique, hitting sixes on fast bowlers. So its a pity for fast bowlers. The thing is youngsters sitting at home get to see learn so many cricket batting skills!

I checked in IPL at the wankhede stadium and crowd is too much noisy. I imagined if i ever get to play, how can anyone play in such noise! To perform in front of so many people, its a big challenge! I wonder how pro cricketeers concentrate their battings and bowlings!

So many familiar people one gets to see on tv IPL matches. Most of the cricketeers belong from the villages of the remotest corners in india. The show off these IPL matches caters while telecast then dosen't relates(seem to have any connection) with the viewers of india. What does seem that the stories of IPL takes away the focus from retired cricket players works!
Anyway how can a batsman hit so many sixes and fours in IPL matches in just 10 to 20 overs span!!! I get to see what ball do they use if its made of hard plastic, cause just the swing of the bat connects it to a six! Three four sixes is ok, but hitting so many sixes with an original heavy season ball would make any batsman slip off his feet due to sveltering heat exhaustion! Or is it integral internal strength for hitting so many sixes and fours?

Why do bollywood stars make their way to cricket IPL matches?
Is it that since Bollywood has been a big flop since last 7 years, with hardly anyone going to movies in theatres....
And cricket too nowdays losing its popularity with two most worst performances world cups lately 2007 and 2011....
So cricket IPL needs Bollywoods support and vice versa....to gain some publicity.
I think IPL cricket india is a new zealand cricket production architecture, the team symbols, the team colors, the ideas and even the cheerleaders!!!
With daniel vettori who might be the person in making IPL possible!
And david warner a clone of shane warne was seen as the last player who won the best IPL catch award who at the boundary raised the impulse bike and stood over it balancing on just rear wheel to catch a high catch!

What if watching too much T20s the cricket fans would loose interest in Test matches. Every batsmen can't adjust to playing T20s. If a batsman requires 33 balls to score one run then?!!!
And doesn't bowlers have a reputation?

I was viewing the highlights of 2003 india vs pakistan ODI, in that match waqar younis took back to back wickets. And when then was a hattrick he bowled a york to mhd kaif who defended it. I first thought that the ball bowled by waqar younis was a lolly, but now i saw it again and upon impact with the bat it made a loud noise. So is the sound in television broadcast is edited i.e. lowered impact sound.
Another thing in another match between australia Vs south africa test match of year 2000. When shuan pollock went to field a four at boundary, and there was a big section of white crowd who was not chearing but jeering shuan pollock n' others. A poor state that cricketeers who are just for an occassional day are respected, while at most of their career times mouthfouled by the fans. And shuan pollock and many like him cause of the gentleman game they had to avoid the crowd. At many matches the crowd seems calm but in some matches like in england, india and australia,...rowdy audiences jeer at cricketeers which seems very bad. And the sound is infact shunned. Thats much more worse than sledging.

Just some years ago in years before 2000, i get to see some exciting one-dayers between pakistan and south africa. When pakistan had chase a score put up by south african side. And the score after 15 overs read 45 runs for 8 wickets. Where more than five pakistani batsmen were run-out. And it was really funny matches. Where bowling, scoring runs was very difficult. And now in IPL matches i see so many fours, sixes, running between wickets....so it doesn't seem any excitement. How can this be even possible?
