I am agree with "T20 killing real cricket skills" because in T20 cricket players face less number of balls and they play just like do and die, they cannot learn about technical skills of cricket, they just play for win but in real cricket they faces many balls in ODI and TEST cricket and learn more about cricket skills.

T20 cricket helps in improvement of young talent in a rapid manner. So it teaches players to adopt to situation as fast as he/she can. Yes some of the skills are missing in T20 as its the shorter version Like patience and playing defensive, playing long innings. But its simple you can not get every vitamin and protein in a single dish. To get all you have to eat different dish. So what I think T20 is not killing any skill its just helping in learning some fascinating skills.

No, T20 cricket is not killing real cricket skills. First of all the real cricket means the test match format which is played for 5 days. I agree to the point that it totally differs from t20 cricket as in test cricket you need to play defensive, with patience and have to play a long inning to support your team and T20 cricket is a short format requiring big shots and fast playing. I think t20 develops good bowling skills for the Odi's and test as bowling in the death overs and not giving more runs will make your bowling good and make it more and better. So, overall it is not killing real cricket skills but is also a good format to develop your bowling and batting skills.

Hello friends, Everything has its own pros and cons. Similar is the case with T20- Crickets new format. One cannot disregard the fact that it has enlightened the sport if cricket. According to me, T20 is a trendsetter. T20 has brought in innovative batting. The speciality of T20 is that it has enhanced a player's ability to absorb pressure and play according to the situation. But the plight we see us that it has mostly favoured the batsman in comparison with bowlers.

Although here and there we see glimpses of magical bowling performance by world class bowlers, generally it's batsmen's game. Throughout the years T20 has witnessed some of the fabulous performances by players (IPL, BIg bash league) etc. But I feel T20 has affected the most important thing that a player needs-patience, which is why I consider TEST cricket as a best cricket format. Test cricket is the original format with which cricket evolved. Now also test cricket has not lost its glory as it demands patience, strength, stamina and discipline. One of the criticism that I feel about T20 is that it has resulted in more cases of corruption and illegal betting with respect to past days. Also some players take T20 as a money making event. Another plight is that players opt T20 over their country, which is degrading the value of cricket. But I am not against T format as it has helped create more opportunities for some of the local players which will be yard stick for their selection in international arena. All things change with time. I think cricket is also changing, but hopes will be for the better. Thank you.

Hi all.

We even don't think that t20 cricket is dominating now everywhere because Test cricket and limit over Cricket have their respect as well. In Test cricket format you have to deliver your patience, skills, able to score big. Test Cricket is not only defined you but it teaching you about your patience, skills, etc.

Yes, Nowadays we are very much addict to the T20 format game or mostly called the 360-degree game, But it doesn't decrease that 2 level and enhance the skills and how to score. It not good for bowlers and they have to be the best in all formats and here you have to be perfect under any circumstances.

Well everything has its pros and cons. If we look in financial terms then t20 has contributed a lot and given platform to lot many young talents. But actually, in t20 cricket, bowlers are not worried about their speed, line and length, for example - many times bowlers get wickets on loose deliveries also and so they didn't improve themselves and had to suffer in test and Odis, as we can see in the case if West Indies.

Hello everybody,

T20 cricket is the format of a limited over cricket where the spectators get entertained by the thrill of the game and power play like big hits by the batsmen. In this format, I think that, there is a lack of scope to a bowler to perform well. In 50-50 overs matches or test cricket, there is a scope to judge a player not only by his ability but by his patience and class. But in T20 format, there is very shortage of time to perform well. This format is only for entertaining purpose. It is not helpful for a cricketer to represent himself as a complete player in front of thousand of spectators. So on my point of view, T20 cricket is killing the real cricketing skills.

Thank you.

No I am completely against the fact that T20 cricket is killing real cricketing skills because if take the example of IPL, it provides the platform for so many young cricketers that were living in dark before that, and somehow they after this tournament the get selected for international T20 and one day squad and there they perform well.

So just because of tournament like this they get the exposure of playing with so international cricketers and get coaching form world class players and under the shadow of those experienced cricketers they play well and perform well in international circuit also.

Good afternoon to everyone.

Myself Navneet. Its a great pleasure to me that we are here to discuss the topic "is T20 affect the real cricket skill". I think T20 really affected the real cricket.

Because in T20 THE GAME IS ONLY OF 20 OVERS so players wants to six and four on every ball and in this format it does not matter that how batsman make a run.

It doesn't matter whether batsman has classical skill or not.

In other formats like test cricket the batsman who has better classical skill perform better.

Good morning Friends,

According to me, Cricket is main sport event in India and other countries. Cricketers are learn many things from the T20 matches. It will be useful for exploring their skills in T20. It is used to express in world cup matches. It is useful learning small things in T20 matches. That will express in world level matches. So, T20 is main part in cricketers life.

Thank You.
