Is T20 Cricket killing Real Cricketing Skills? – Group Discussion

Today Group Discussion topic was “Is T20 Cricket killing Real Cricketing Skills?”
I want to speak against the notion. In my opinion T20 does not harm cricketing skills in any means. In the other hand it increases or helps the player to improve his skills. If you want to argue that playing 5 days continuously shows the real cricketing skills, I won’t go for it. Today in this busy world, who gets 5 days to see the result of the match? And most of them end with ties. So in this fast moving world a short format of this wonderful game is needed, which is T20. People can enjoy the match and there is more fun than any Test Match. It hardly takes 3-4 hours to come out the winner.
Let me put some differences between Test Match and T20. Test matches are well exhausted and day long. Players gets tea-lunch-tea breaks but how will the spectators pass the time? In test match, we do not have any kind of pressure. We can bat as long as we can. Brian Lara played 4 days continuously. So it was just a batsman and 11 fielders match. Boring !!!!!

T20 cricket

In Test match, we had not any target to win. If target is too high, just draw the match. We spend our entire 5 days and no result. Just frustrating. I can bring drawbacks.
On the other hand, T20 is a very intense form the game. It’s very energetic and competitive. Winner will surely come. Again exception is always there. But in T20, spectators are always full of JOSH. In 20-20 matches players carry a huge pressure. From blowing to batting. Only one over can change the mode of the match. So every ball or every over is very crucial in the match. Even spectators also keep their sharp eye on every ball. So we can say that T20 matches teach the players to utilize maximum of a delivery and it also teaches how to play under so much pressure. It improves the blower’s skills because they are very crucial for this format. That’s why IPL now a days are becoming so popular.
So last but not the least, in my opinion Test Matches have become older. In today’s generation there is hardly anyone who wants to spend his 5 days for a single match. So T20 format is the need to keep alive this game. And T20 is not killing the skills, rather it is helping players to learn how to survive under pressure and how to make more and more runs. If a player neglects T20, I am sure that he will not stand in any ground after 5 years because after 5 years we will hardly see any Test Series. There is rule by ICC otherwise no country would like to sponsor any test series. Test Series do not get live spectators as well as TV spectators. So it is a huge loss.

  1. Greetings,

    This format is meant for a twist in cricket. Many international series contain 1, 2 or 3 T20 matches along with test series and/or ODI series. They are like an opportunity, for e.g, in the India-Australia series.

    India couldn’t pursue the ODI’s. But Then they made a clean sweep against Australia in the T20s, which broke a 140-year-old record, that no team has clean sweeped Australia, against Australia, in Australia. So India ended up at no. 1 in T20I’s.

    Moreover, because its a shorter format of cricket, people can go and watch the matches live at the stadium, while one can’t watch a whole test match for 4 days continuous!

    Last but not the least, T20 internationals and Domestic T20’s like IPL, BBL etc. have brought great attraction among youngsters and kids, while many adults and older people think that it’s destroying Test Cricket, which is absolutely wrong!

    So, I think that T20’s and T20 are one of the best formats of the sport.
