Interesting view-point.

Maybe ICC should limit the number of batsmen getting to bat in 20-20
to give some incentive to the bowlers as I had suggested in an earlier
post.

That would pretty much eliminate the whole point of the game... its meant to
be crazy and stupid. Literally anyone will win the world cup in 20-20,
australia have been slaughtered in 20-20 games just like any other team has,
the skill element only works itself out over a large large number of games,
getting a few early wickets makes or breaks the teams, most games end with
one team at 180 points and the other not even managing a run per ball.

They're called "runs".

 All Pollock's comments indicate is that he doesn't know much about
20-20.
In England it is the use of the slow bowlers to control the rate
that's crucial and good death bowling.
