What a pity that such an articulate and literate young man should include

"Strangely, this intimate contest and laying bare of character took place between two people who have never spoken a word - probably never will - knew nothing about each other barring relative cricket prowess and not once recognised that the other may have succeeded"

Whatever happened to sharing a beer or at least a conversation. Sad really, but it stood out in the article for me.

I think the fact that the T20 games are generally on a night under floodlight and chuck in the music etc and that appeals to people who want excitment and quick entertainment ,espcially if your a kid.The T20 could bring in the younger support which after time would lead to them going to the tests aswell?.

In Dubai i saw loads of Pakistani families for the ODI's and you have to keep kids interested or they just start to mess about

They dont want to sit in a staduim for 3 days watching what is sometimes a drab affair (not recently though)

I think if its popular in the sub continent which it is then it will only grow as the money that it will genrate from the likes of India cant be ignored (somebody mentioned it earlier - a cash cow)
