T20 isn't cricket, its garbage to advertise shitty indian products. Enjoy watching your rubbish, we'll be watching cricket.

Heh, T20 is not only cricket but it is the future of cricket and you are going to get real disappointed when more and more T20 is going to be featured. Like how South Africa replaced their traditional Boxing Day test with a Boxing Day T20 match

Anyway, September and October are great for T20 fans.

September - T20 World CUp
October - Champions League

Entertaining times.

Yeah, you can keep crying about it when T20 becomes the future of cricket. It has already started and I can already see the crying

Cricket is already being defined by ODIs and T20s and that is how it is going to be, whether or not deluded "cricket fans" try hard in defining their own version

Nothing beats the Ashes, whether that's TV or being in the ground live. 5 tests each played over 5 days, the feeling that a game can change in an instant through sublime batting or world class bowling, England bantering with the Aussies over 'We all shagged Kylie' and them being a land of convicts, beer flowing by the over, a party atmosphere and some terrific players trying to win the biggest series in cricket. To me whether its at Lords/Headingley/Old Trafford or Sydney/Melbourne/Gabba it just defines cricket. Everytime it comes around its the one series my Dad is invested in enough to want to go out of his way to get a ticket for us both to go watch it, the only other series that come close would be a home game vs South Africa or maybe India at somewhere like Old Trafford/Trent Bridge/Edgbaston/Headingley which aren't overly far.

Anytime T20 is announced he just watches it on TV, its fun to watch but there's no real emotional attachment to actually want to fork money and travel down to the game. Its something that can bring people into cricket for sure, but its really only catering to the people who won't watch Test Cricket because 'its too slow' and just want quicker and more 'entertaining' cricket.

Test Cricket matters whoever England play in our family, T20 and even One Dayers are something that will still have us supporting England....but not really bothered when its all said and done. There's more relief/jubilation at winning a close and tight Test match/series than strolling through 5 One Dayers and 20/20 matches.

Just my stance.

I don't think there's been a test match where I've been sober. Ashwell Prince is making a very slow 150? Well let's stack 30 beer cups on top of each other and pass it to the back of the stand and dump it out of the ground into the streets.
