WCTT!

"கழுதை தேஞ்சு கட்டெரும்பு ஆன கதையா", from test cricket to ODI to 20-20 now!! I guess, the 'real' cricket fans wouldn't be too thrilled about this latest version but helps poor souls like me to unglue(!) their spouses from out of the laptop screens sooner!!

From the team line-up, I could only recognise and name a handful of players and wondered if the 20-20 actually meant that eligibility for players was that they should be in their 20s! "ஏதோ கெலிச்சா சரி, அதுவும் பழம் பெருச்சாளிகள் இல்லாமல்!!"

"Pazham peruchaLigal"-a? hmmm.. Paavamga.. avanga ennanga thappu senjaanga?

Unfortunately, 20-20 isn't gonna replace the one-dayers just yet.. so, in a few days, you would still find the glueing back to the laptop screens... My forecast is that, over the next 2 years, the ratio would slowly shift towards the T20 matches..

Aparna,

visiting your blog after a long time, yes, the 20-20 will be a relief, but son't see it replacing ODIs, totally support you in the statement of ungluing husbands from the laptop sooner.
