    Yep, and as I'm not playing anymore, I'm getting to see some of it!

    Shame it seems to be mostly overseas players starring at the moment, though....

    Been watching it on the tele when the programme schedulers can manage to squeeze it in between hours of Big Brother, The Mint and dramas that no-one actually watches anymore. I think it's great. Also watched the 'classic' version the other day with ngland players like Chris Lewis, and Robin Smith amongst the lineup. Outstanding stuff.

    Cricket does nothing for me I'm afraid, not even when we won the Ashes recently. Each to their own I guess.

    @ Will: why not playing anymore? I thought this was the only thing above banding for ya?

    It was brilliant wasn't it - 118 from Cameron White I think - It was the highest ever 20/20 score by a team. If you were in that crowd you couldn't take your eye off the match for fear of getting a 6 shot in the head!!

    Justin Langer started out as a biffer on a par with Darren Lehmann. He changed his style (and added an 'r' to his name so people pronounced his name right) when he realised there were six or seven people figiting for two spots in the Aussie line up. The change of style made him a candidate for an opening berth, and he made it his own.

    I had no doubts that if put into a Twenty20 game his technique and experience would make him a worthy addition to any team.

    Having said that, Ronnie Irani's knock on Friday night should see him straight into the Twenty20 world cup team. Absoultely awestriking.

    Is that a word? Some really good bowling in the Leicestershire v. Lancashire game the other day, what a supreb finish that was. Even Glamorgan seem to be doing ok with a bit of help from their Kiwi friends. It is a very viewer friendly form of the game and can only be good for the publicity of the game as a whole.

    Too right

    What I also like about Twenty20 is the way the commentators are linked up to the fielders and umpires and can speak to them individually when they want - definitely adds a different dimension to the game.
