    Isn't T20 destroying the beauty of the game?

    Don't you think that if you let t20 affect too much then someday soon enough it will evaluate even more and create something like t10. Think about it, hasn't the competition in one day match been less than before. Isn't it because of excess t20?

    You are true,the charm and beauty of cricket is going out slowly with this frequent schedule of crickets.Its like instead of DD 1 and DD2 ,we are now watching thousands of channels through cable networks and dish TV and thus charm in no where.

    It is a good time pass and an alternative to movies but sorry to say, it is not cricket. The real and quality players do not get chance to play and players who have not so good techniques are in demand.. But till you get chance to see a test seriers between Australia- England, India- Pakistan, and west Indies- south Africa, it is not bad.

    This is a debatable topic.Yes , a avid cricket fan will feel T20 has tarnished the beauty of he game.A first time or casual follower of cricket will definitely find this format more interesting.I feel T20 is also important in a way,attract new audience and to keep this game alive among the future generation and .Thats why these days cricket has become popular among the women folks as well!!

    If you inject poison to remove the previous poison from your body then maybe that'll be effective for the time being. But soon it will affect you back and then you will feel the reaction.

    I think T20 is destroying the fabric of the longer versions of the game. It's not the version itself, but the IPL's and ICC World T20 World Cup's impact on the scheduling of other games. T20 is giving cricketers a different skill-set, but notice that cricketers who excel in T20 do not usually excel at other forms of the game (not even 50-over cricket). However, a Test/ODI player can easily adapt. The shortest form of the game is not ideal for the development of young players.

    Sadly, yes. Even sadder is the fact that the BCCI do not seem to care, as long as they get paid.
