Nice game this Twenty/20 - Cricket's new Avatar

This is clearly the future of cricket. Cricket sure has come a long way. From the gentlemen’s game of test cricket to the game of fun, dance and music.

India played its first Twenty/20 (pro20?) game yesterday and I saw a twinety/20 match for the first time. Kinda liked it. Has the atmosphere of a soccer game. The crowd cheering at their loudest. The loud music between overs. The dancing cheerleaders. The players and coach sitting just outside the boundary ropes egging their teams along. And above all the endearingly exciting and hectic pace of the game.

It was almost bizarre. Well, India won. Can it get more bizarre than that?
