With Australia losing its 5th T20 game in a row is it any wonder that no Australian broadcaster wants the rights to the upcoming T20 World Cup?

I think T20 sucks. It is a bit like rugby sevens, it isn't a good representation of the game and unlike one dayers, the game can be very one sided a lot of the time

I used to watch a lot of one-dayers.  Now I might graze over an innings.  Tests have fallen right off the radar.  

 

I find T20 is perfect for watching for the time limited cricket fan.  Otherwise I'd probably not bother at all.

I enjoy all three forms of the game.  I do struggle to find the time to watch every ball of a test match though.

it's also due to the times that the games are played in India, not great viewing times in Australia or Nz thank god for My Sky.

I never get cricket, like I never get (association) football.

 

When teams are remotely closely matched, pretty hard to predict the outcome of a game. A beats B, and the next day B beats C and the next day C trashes A.

 

Because the ball is so round, and in footy team A shoots at goal 1x all day and scores, team B gets all the play but misses, penalty denied, offisde called, goalie saves some. Loses.

 

Cricket you need 10 balls to decide a game. That's it. (well unless you are playing Australia, only need 5-6 catches). Sometimes you drop it, sometimes the umpire makes a dodgy call, the rest of the time you do a really good bowl and the batter gets lucky and gets a 6 instead of caught out.

I believe they have a different team for T20, ODI, Test, which I think it too many. Should stick with one team.
