Hogg would have also got slaughtered you muppet. Gayle and Pollard were on form, and it was the last over with plenty of wickets to spare. Its Bailey's fault for giving him the last over. Cummins or Starc had to bowl the last one, as a captain you have to juggle your bowlers to make sure things like that don't happen. Now aren't you the bloke who wanted Dave Hussey to play? 2 overs 0-22 and a 2nd ball duck DAT WORLD CLASS DHUSS

Your idol Sachin rates Tests over any other format. Go on, dismiss his opinion.

I've pleased that the Windies are seemingly under a resurgence, even if it is in the joke format of the game. Their ODI form has been steadily improving, and with any luck their tests form will catch up and they'll be a treat to watch again. Kinda sickening these days to see them in tests, when at the start of the 90's I remember watching Ambrose & Walsh steam in with dat pace bowling, and Lara, Hooper and Chanderpaul bat through days making dem runs.

Windies to win the tournament after another GAYLE masterclass. He's scary good.

That's his opinion. I am talking about what fans prefer . Majority fans care about T20 format and WI are quite happy to perform in the form that matters to fans.

Majority of fans prefer real cricket, aka Test Cricket. Let's sight some examples from the 2010/11 Ashes tour.

1st Test Attendance Figures (GABBA)

Day 1: 35,389
Day 2: 34,045
Day 3: 34,615
Day 4: 21,677
Day 5: 7,088

2nd Test Attendance Figures (Adelaide Oval)

Day 1: 38,141 (Highest attendance at the Adelaide Oval in the 21st century)
Day 2: 33,797
Day 3: 32,369
Day 4: 20,157

3rd Test Attendance Figures (WACA Ground)

Day 1: 27,473 (Highest attendance at the WACA Ground in the 21st century)
Day 2: 20,661
Day 3: 20,073
Day 4: 16,616

4th Test Attendance Figures (MCG)

Day 1 - 84,345
Day 2 - 67,149
Day 3 - 68,773
Day 4 - 19,889

5th Test Attendance Figures (SCG)

Day 1: 43,561
Day 2: 40,247
Day 3: 40,300
Day 4: 35,622
Day 5: 19,274

761,261 fans over 22 days of cricket

1st T20 (Adelaide Oval) - 32,054
2nd T20 (MCG) - 58,837

Dwarved in comparison. More people attended the tests, and T20 attendance didn't even come close.

1st ODI (MCG) - 34,845
2nd ODI (Hobart) - 15,125
3rd ODI (SCG) - 36,072
4th ODI (Adelaide) - 34,393

Once more, dwarved. No attendance for the crash and bash, nor the ODI's, outdid the highest attendance at each ground for the test matches played. More fans care about test cricket, as reflected by the figures. Your asinine notion to cling onto T20 being even remotely relevant is baffling.

Ashes? 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? Elementary.

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.
