Steak and Chewing Gum

Watching the WACA Test has got me thinking - shocking I know. Test matches are like a good steak dinner - they take a while, they take time to digest and they are long term satisfying. Then I click on cricinfo and see that the Windies and SA boys have played a meaningless 20/20 which can only be compared to chewing gum, if I stay with my dodgy food analogy.

What plonker decided that players throwing their bat at the ball for 40 overs was in any way more exciting or satisfying than the tension of RP Singh hanging in for a vital 30?
