Are you going to see any T20 this year?

The family and I are going to the Oval to watch some with a couple of other families.

My eldest really enjoyed it last time, especially making a beer snake and the fact that it made half the stand taunt the marshals. It was all good natured fun until someone took it too far and got chucked out... how we smirked.

Oh, the cricket was good too.

Nah, I used to love cricket but rapidly losing interest since there is no more passion in the game. It's all "entertainment" (guess all sports will end up this way)now for money purposes. International matches just seems like an audition to get in the IPL or similar tournaments.

I will be taking the family to Wembley though for the rugby match Barbarians vs South Africa in November. My son took some interest in the recent World Cup and from pictures when I went to see Barbarians vs Aussies at Twickenham.

I guess, but then if it brings more spectators and future players to the game I can see why they do it. I took my oldest to a ODI a few years back and he was fidgeting after about 30 minutes. T20 on the other hand is fast enough and has enough razzmatazz for him to stay interested (even wifey wants to go and see a match now). I think it was that experience that meant he now badgers me to go out and play cricket with him when the weather is good and why he and his brother both go to cricket training at the weekend in the summer.

Nice! Let's continue this conversation on ... the Rugby Thread although there are some possibly NSFW pictures there of sweaty rugby players.
