I want to set the record straight for Kebab and our other loyal readers who took umbrage at my apparent disdain for T20 cricket. Just as an aside, it seems obvious to me that Kebab in particular is still young at heart and impervious to the ways of the devious and crooked (read: BCCI office bearers and ICC board dimwits).
The problem is not with T20 matches, as such. The danger lies in the unending greed of cricket administrators. An affliction which will eventually force them to do away with "real cricket" in favour of the popcorn variety. Not a single cricket fan could argue that the last two Test series involving Australia or the previous two ODI's between Australia and South Africa have been anything short of champagne cricket - T20 eat you heart out.
Don't get me wrong, I enjoy T20 and the IPL just as much as the next man and his dog (anybody know where I can get an authentic Mumbai Indians shirt from?). But, it's no different to the the latest chart-busting pop song - you get utterly sick of it after a short while and wait for the next big thing.
Longevity demands substance - T20 lacks it in abundance.
