i think it is bad for 0di..... 20-20 is basically a mini version of 50 overs cricket andit is more exiting than 50 overs and finishes in less time now after watching 20-20 the pace of 50 overs looks very slow i think with arrival 20-20 cricket i think viewers will lose interest in 50 overs cricket what do you people think ?

Not really.

I think T20 cricket has definetely had an impact on the game's future. Close matches, stunning catches, brilliant hitting etc. But, T20 was brought into cricket to attract more people from other countries. There's no doubt T20 has caught the imagination of millions of people, but IMO a true cricket fan will always love the Test Matches and 50 over cricket games. T20 will be very successful, because it lasts for only 3 hours, and the pace of the game is always quick. There's always going to be some action going on.

Yes, the Test Match might be toooooo long, but still, it showcases the real stamina of players and we still have test match specialists like Rahul Dravid, Alistair Cook and Ashwell Prince to name a few.

The ODI matches are much more interesting, and they are my favourites and will be for at a couple years more. When ODI cricket was introduced, the interest level in it was stunningly high, and being the first cricket format to end in one day it was definetely eye catching. But, now, with the introduction of T20, people say there's no future for ODI cricket, but I honestly disagree. There are some amazing series coming up in Aus/India, Sri Lanka/England, Pak/SAfrica.

T20 may have a brighter future, but I don't think ODI cricket will fade away. If anything might happen interest in Test series may diminish IMO (not in rivalries like The Ashes or Indo-Pak though).

well i think test cricket will stay has it tests their skills stamina patience etc of players but i think 50 overs format was brought to entertain people now 20-20 is more entertaining format it think there will slight drop in interest in 50 overs its neither testing your skills as much has test and not entertaining has much has 20-20 has 20-20 catches on so now 50 overs either here nor there
