T20: Lee-thal Blow to Cricket?

" Sometimes you look up at the scoreboard and you see you have gone for just 15 off two overs, it's just a matter of knowing you've hit the spot. And I've been pretty happy. "

- Bret Lee, after the Australia-Bangladesh match yesterday.

" The trouble is, Twenty20 doesn't seem like cricket to me. It appears to be not so much a speeded-up, watered down version of cricket, a sort of cricket-lite for dummies who are incapable of comprehending the complexities and subtleties of the greatest game in the world, but an utter impostor. It has whittled away at cricket's essence; it has snuffed out its soul; it is unrecognisable as the game i adore. "

- Soumya Bhattacharya in the Hindustan Times
