i dont think so as in 20-20 anyone can be successful but to get a good cricketer one needs to play ODI and test matches.. i think ODI's are more of a test than 20-20 where anyone can beat anyone irrespective of talent they have you just need one player to play well and you will win while one day is more of a team sport.

No I don't think that 20-20 will ever beat the odi. Both are having their own taste and enjoyment and I liked both format. 20-20 is only for heating but the main the real test of a player come only in test and odi.

Definitely, 20-20 will became more famous. Its completely entertaining for the whole game like foot ball and hockey. Also the time period is lessser than ODI. Always people want to watch games which takes less time. Its completely batsman dominated match. so we can watch hard hitting through out the game. So its really anjoyble

No I do not think that 20-20 will beat ODI in upcoming years. We have seen that the test cricket is holding its place against the ODIs. Many cricketers have stated that they still enjoy playing test cricket. Not only that the recent days results of the test matches show that the test cricket is still exciting and so people will love this test matches too. Similarly, the 20-20 is a shorter version of the game and it does not provide chance for building up the innings by taking time. So it provides its own excitement. ODI is longer version and so some people feel that people may like 20-20 more than ODI but I feel that both versions are equally good and so they should not be compared.

yes i think. 20 - 20 is a big hit and comparing to 20 -20 odi have less interesting features. odi got more fan's because of test match being too long. now shortest match will have better audience.

Hi sureshgandhi Twenty-Twenty has a very interesting format.Actually When One Day Internationals came people used to find them very attractive and as it was of less time compared to Test Cricket they started enjoying it even more.Same thing applies to the Twenty Twenty Cricket,it takes a lot less time compared to One Day Cricket.But I think the disadvantage is for the bowlers.Viewers just want to see more runs and the bowlers are beaten up a lot.

Why should one form of Cricket be thought of as better than any other? 20-20 Cricket, no doubt has the advantage of fast results but has also the disadvantage of batsman not getting an opportunity to show case their full talent. It is more dependent on luck, fielding lapses as well as the inaccuracies of the bowlers. But, that is not to say that ODI is free from these shortcomings. Here too, to a lesser extent, these faults remain but does provide a batsman and bowler and Captain to exhibit his skill over a longer period of time. On the other hand, Test Cricket, which provides ample time to a batsman or a bowler as well as the Captain to fully control a game, suffers from the overly long duration of the game as well as the likelihood of a result not emerging. So, One should be prepared to enjoy all these forms of the game fully knowing the advantages and disadvantages of each. It is like eating a hamburger, snacks or a full meal, with the attendant benefits of each.

I think that all 3 major format of cricket has it space in cricket. I can't see the T20 taking over the ODI never. One of my reason is every cricketing country wants to win the world cup. The world cup is more envied than the T20 world cup. That says alot about the importance of the ODIs.

20-20 will definetely beat ODI. After sometime ppl will loose interest in watching a game throughout the day. 20-20 is shorter version and is like watching a entertainment show.

20-20 is just a format that has got very good appeal. but it will not endanger any other format at any time. this will be taken care by ICC. they can't let a format of cricket go extinct.
