Cricket Slog Fest

Twenty-Twenty

Last night the Victorian Bushrangers took on the Tasmanian Tigers in the domestic cricket twenty20 final. We took the tram to the ground to take advantage of the free entry into the MCG with a MetCard. I don’t know why, but we made our way to the same spot we were in for the Australian game last night. This was my first live experience of a Twenty20 match. The first thing I noticed was that the boundary rope was set an extra 20 metres or so further inside the normal position. Why do they need to make it easier to score boundaries? It was a slog fest, as these games are expected to be, and although Tasmania did not make a huge score, it was a close and exciting finish. I like twenty20, but I wouldn’t go to watch skilful play. I would prefer to watch a Test or one day game, which takes the time for a player to show his skill and develop a game plan.
