I'm a cricket traditionalist
4BC Sports Today: I must say that when I first heard about T20 cricket I thought 'what's this rubbish!' But the shortest form of the game has certainly grown on me.
Yes I'm a cricket traditionalist.
I love the way a test match can twist and turn over the 5 days but that doesn't mean T20 cricket doesn't have a place in the game.
Test cricket should remain the pinnacle of the game. The pathway for elite juniors should guide them to wear the Baggygreen. I think that the future of T20 cricket is not with internationals but instead with city based franchises.
I'd love to propose to the ICC that all international T20 cricket be stopped immediately. In my opinion too much international T20 cricket can cheapen both tests and one day internationals.
In my opinion city or franchise based teams are the way to go. Competitions like the Big Bash or the IPL and various other domestic T20 competitions should be the only way we see this exciting form of the game.
I see that one day in the future we will see teams from New York, LA, Beijing and Tokyo play traditional teams in 'world leagues'. T20 cricket could be the way cricket is opened up to more people around the world.
I'm excited ahead of the start of the Big Bash this weekend. Here are some players to keep an eye on.
Joe Burns – very talented batsman from the Brisbane Heat
Cameron Boyce – spin bowler for the Adelaide Scorchers might be a real hit in the competition
Michael Lumb – T20 specialist for the Sydney 6ers. Suited to this form of the game
Ben Cutting – Brisbane Heat bowler. But don't underestimate his batting. He can hit the ball into the Queen Street Mall while facing up at the Stanley St end at the GABBA.
Enjoy the Bigbash, it's going to be terrific entertainment.
