What? Can't someone love T20s and ODIs but hate tests?
India are an absolute shamble of a test team right now so it's no wonder you hate test cricket.

Re: Cricket Discussion Thread

Boxing Day test here is always full MCG on boxing day always gets a ton of people, this year it got 67,138 people in on day 1. SA/NZ in T20 only got a crowd of 13,885. Thats nearly 5 times the attendance for the test in just one day.

I was talking in context of South Africa Reading comprehension, my dear boy.
About Boxing Tests vs Boxing Day T20 in SA.

Oh, and all the tickets were sold out for that T20 match. You cannot fill 65k people in a 15-20k stadium

Which team you bandwagon/follow in BBL?

Oh, and:

Quote:
India batting legend Sachin Tendulkar has reportedly announced his retirement from one-day internationals, although he still plans to play Test matches.

Read more: http://www.foxsports.com.au/cricket/...#ixzz2GL1oxoiH
Tendulkar retires from ODIs and international T20s to prolong his test career. Sachin recognises the importance of the 5-day format, and thus wants to prolong his career in it.

That is his personal perspective. Makes sense because he grew up playing tests and ODIs and have not played T20 as much compared to those, which means he has not adapted well to T20 skillset. IN any case, that is irrelevant of what viewers and fans prefer.

Last Boxing day test in South Africa got a crowd of just over 13000 on the first day. Thats so much different than the t20

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?
