The Twenty-20 World Cup


So the cricket Twenty-20 world cup is almost upon us ( due to start on September 11th ). Well, I’m not too excited – I’m not alone in thinking that the whole Twenty-20 concept is a bit shallow and is only there to deepen the pockets of the cricket administrators.  The hit-or-miss game holds nothing for the purist like myself. In fact , I think that it’s actually responsible for the dismal semi-final performance we saw from the South-African team in the world cup semi-final….Would past greats be charging down the wicket in the second over of a World Cup Semi-Final,  facing a strong Australian attack ?
 
And while I’m ranting, I might mention the whole Kallis debacle. Personally I think that he’s our best batsman , and if you don’t need him for a form of cricket , then maybe it’s not cricket that you’re playing ?
