There's a spate of necrobumps today.

How are people finding these threads - search doesn't work for me


I don't know. I mainly use my phone and I couldn't see the Fabric closed thread and the search function only brought up the one I upped from 2009 or whatever. Seems to only bring up ancient threads.

Im a strict test man. I can just about get into 1 day stuff. 20/20 is just fucking rounders to me. The new 1 day is more rounders than cricket. Records being broken every year. Its shite

They’re getting better and better at mounting on runs in 50 overs, I don’t think that’s making it a worse spectacle.

The prominence of T20 has more negatively affected one day cricket imo.

One of the commentators put it perfectly. Watching Ronnie O sullivan smash a 48 second 147 years ago was magical. Watching every cunt do it now makes it boring and this is similar.
 
I remember the aussies smashing the record years ago for mid 300's. Now the record is being broken all the time. Its just boring. If I want rounders, Ill go to the T20

I get your point and nothing will ever compare to test cricket, but I think the one day game has vastly improved as a spectacle thanks to T20. Most games used to follow the same pattern of a run a ball power play for 10-15 overs, 3-4 runs per over for a really dull middle period of 20-odd overs, then try to smash it for the last 10.

Now there are mad innovative shots which has led to much more creative bowling (slower ball bouncers, knuckle balls, ‘mystery’ spinners with tons of variations. I’d prefer to see the balance tipped a bit more towards the bowlers because pitches like today’s give them no chance, but the skill level for batting, bowling and fielding is better than it’s ever been in ODI cricket.

Rashid was a prime example today of bowling well on a batsman’s pitch. Loads of variation and great accuracy. And the batting spectacle these days is a million times better imo. Why wouldn’t you want teams to keep pushing the boundaries and getting larger totals?

But will they perform against India in the tests? That's the question.

The growth of T20 is a sign of the times really. People have no attention span and it's a much easier sell to get new people and TV deals for something that goes for 4 hours max rather than all day or a whole week.
 
I don't mind it, as long as you adjust your expectations it's entertaining.

With the rise of T20 and there being so much cricket and such a congested calendar, is it time to get rid of the 50 over game? We could have proper test series instead of Pakistan just having two tests. Fewer back to back tests would be better as well.

If it meant more tests i would do away with 1 dayers and just have t20s instead.

I think that would be for the best and if you have fewer back to back tests it gives the opposition more to get used to conditions and fix their flaws so a series won't be heavily skewed towards the home team.

Love of test matches seems quite peculiar to the English fans.

The appetite is sadly decreasing for it across most of the rest of the cricketing world.

I thought this a few years back when ODIs were still pretty stagnant and T20 was taking off. Now I really enjoy a full 50 over spectacle, and find T20s more hollow in comparison. In ODIs now you have the same big hitting as in T20, but enough time for a game to ebb and flow at least a little bit. 
 
T20 is frustrating because literally one over where 20+ runs are scored or 3 quick wickets are taken can decide the game.
 
It does my head in how both ODI and T20 dominate the test schedules though. That Pakistan series this year was crying out for a 3rd test decider, but they had to cram in a load of shorter format stuff. It's not ideal. 2-test series are crap. Hopefully this test championship idea will reignite some interest globally.

Hory shet that first Jimmy wicket is tits. Looks like it's about to go down leg and swings into off peg. He'll beat McGrath's record real soon I reckon.
