Oh, and all the tickets were sold out for that T20 match. You cannot fill 65k people in a 15-20k stadium
So you're saying it's better to fill a 20k stadium than 60k in a larger stadium? Are you okay?

That's because sachin is a skillful cricketer and there's no skill in 20/20 it's just smashing every ball to the boundary. 20/20 is for cricketers that have no heart like Shaun Tait who can't handle bowling more than a few overs. Tests is a mans game and I believe playing 20/20 too much actually makes batsman and bowlers play worse. Because they don't need to worry about their technique, or concentrating or any of that shit that you need to do in tests.

Shaun Tait is the softest cunt ever. As Jeff Thomson said he bowls fours overs and he's stuffed. Any idiot can play t20 but only the good players can play first class/test cricket

oh and as you point out its a stadium with a 19000 capacity, so in what world is a bit under 14k a sell out?
The Durban ground was only half-full. Hardly called a sold out. And the rest of the days were pathetic. That is the whole reason why they cancelled the Boxing Day tests.

CSA officially confirmed that all the tickets sold out. If it was a bigger ground more people would have come in

That is not even close to understanding what I said
The point was that if it was a larger stadium it could have had a better attendance that what is officially reported

Wrong.

T20 skilslet is different from test skillset. Not that one is better than the other. Test and T20 are just different forms of cricket and equally important. Whether you like them or not is purely a personal opinion. I hate tests, you like tests. As simple as that.

T20 is not just smashing to the boundary. It requires the specific skill of playing under time pressure for batsmen and restricting runs for bowlers. You can have your opinion but according to me, a T20 skillset is more important than that of tests.

In any case, tests are a dying breed and more and more boards are up in favor of limited over cricket rather than tests - especially since hardly a handful of people come to watch tests in most countries.

Let me get this straight, when a T20 has 5k less than the ground holds its still considered a sell out nowadays?

Yeah, they removed the Boxing day test in South Africa. Thats an unfortuate fact that their board chose to do that. However its also fact that they copped so much backlash from the cricketing public that only TWO DAYS LATER they announced that the T20 would only be a one off and they'd go back to having a test match on Boxing day. T20 may be king in India but its not even close in the countries that matter in world cricket.

According to CSA, all thhe tickets reserved for the public were sold out. It is as official as it gets.

And, regarding the Boxing Day tests, all that CSA said was that they would TRY to bring back the tests. But seeing the success of Boxing Day T20, I doubt they would actually say it. Also, the guy who made the statement is not even thinking of becoming the President of CSA. At the end of the day, it was just a statement and nothing else.

Yeah, but thats like me hiring a thousand seat theatre for my play, and then roping off 500 seats. I may sell 500 and so i've sold out whats there but its not even close to a proper sell out.

It was a statement saying they were bringing it back. Are you literally that retarded?

You never know if it was reserved for club members or renovation etc.What does matter is that all the tickets on public was sold out.

Also, they just said they will TRY to bring it back or it is "likely" to be brought back

If you think that's a confirmation then all I can say is

They don't matter on the field. Their teams are horrendous, and their rubbish board is bringing the game to its knees.
