Perfect "frog in a well" mentality
I am talking about world statistics and not a meaningless bilateral series
Oh, and those numbers aren't anything special. Some league IPL match like KKR vs Delhi gets 55,000 crowd. The same ground had less than 5000 people for a test match.
All you showed was a statistic from a meaningless bilateral test series that nobody else other than those countries cared about
WI is performing in a world tournament and when considering world cricket fans, majority care about T20. They know that and that is why they are delighted to perform so well in this. Who cares about losing some test series when they can win in a tournament watched by the majority?
Meaningless? Yes, a tradition of over 130 years is meaningless. Forz the crash and bash gimmick format~!~!
the MCG attracted over 80,000 for Day 1, and then 65,000+ for Days 2 and 3, way more than T20 could ever hope to attract. Inept troll.
Face it, Darth, you're just bitterly jealous that India does not have a rivalry on par with the Ashes and no amount of crash and bash success can make up for it.
Pretty sure the majority of the test cricketing world cared about the Ashes series, in fact, India should have cared because then maybe they wouldn't have been smashed 4-0 when they toured both nations. Or it could have not mattered, being as though India are a trash test team.
The attendance patterns have reflected it in every touring party that test matches are more attended than the ODIs and T20's. That's the same for England, South Africa, Sri Lanka and New Zealand. Bangladesh don't count because they don't play enough, and Pakistan haven't played a home series in heavens knows how long. So that's 71% of the test playing nations where the fans are speaking with putting their asses into seats, rendering your asinine logic that the "majority of fans" like T20 as exactly that - asinine.
You must get off on being torn apart. You were destroyed during the Ashes on Big Footy
India would get larger test crowds if a) the pitches weren't dustbowls, and b) they were played in larger cities that are easy for tourists to get to in order to watch their team. It's the particular venues, Mohali is quite a way for people to get to in that area. The popular grounds like Banglalore, Mumbai, Kolkata all love test cricket and will always attend, and in large numbers. The BCCI's agenda to play tests in rural areas disrupts travel plans and affects attendance in order to promote the asinine crash and bash.
