T20 is a nice, exciting addition, but I can't understand why the organisers would bring in these dancing girls and loud music.
something about a bollywood connection i think their excuse was.
i really like T20, although it's not real cricket is it? not the way it was supposed to be played when they invented test cricket anyway. i like watching T20 it's short but gives you most of the aspects of the one day game, even some of the test game in only a few hours.
watching highlights of test or one day cricket is a waste of time imo, it would be like watching highlights of a baseball game if you're american. part of the joy of watching cricket for me is watching the duals between the batsman and bowler you just don't get to see that in a highlights show. that's why i haven't really watched any test cricket since england played aus 4 years ago. i know its not possible to watch every ball of every day but just watching a highlights show on test cricket can to a bit repetitive.
