I agree, it was much more entertaining than I thought it would be. The Saffas did great basically won the match.Happened to watch it when flicking thru channels. I thought it was awesome. Maybe because of the good performance of the SA ladies.
Bit weird about the 5 ball overs.
I don't know why they don't just play T20s. Are you telling me there's people who can concentrate for 200 balls but not 240?
It's a money spinoff. Cricket has become commercialized sadly.
The powers that be decided that they hadn't bastardized the sport enough with the T20 format so they introduced 100-ball cricket...I have nothing against the commercialisation. It's done wonders for the West Indies, for example, where a generation ago, they were losing all their athletic talent to other sports, but now guys pick cricket for the lucrative T20 contracts. The T20 leagues are here to stay, and I enjoy them more than any ODIs. They don't detract from tests at all.
I'm just not understanding what 100-ball cricket achieves that T20 doesn’t.
