Mark Waugh takes the long handle to Twenty20

Junior calls it ‘junk food‘. Can’t say that I disagree with him really.

From a purely cricket perspective, I have to wonder why either man would base a competition on Twenty20? It’s entertaining, yes, and the novelty of it might even attract a few new fans to the game for a while. It’s also attractive for many because a game is over in three hours. But it isn’t cricket.

Twenty20′s like junk food. It’s a quick fix and while it might taste good there is no substance to it. The more people see of it, the more they’ll see through it.

It’s like rugby sevens. The players don’t take it too seriously and don’t lose too much sleep if they lose.

Twenty20 is the same – it’s hit and giggle.
