20:20 cricket
 n.— «Alert to the gentle decline of the game in an accelerated world of shortened attention spans, authorities have innovated with a new, ultra-short format of the game complete with colored clothing, rock anthems to announce new batters, and a beer-and-hot-dog feel that is akin to baseball.…Yet if 20:20 cricket, as it is known, has brought in the casual fan, remarkably it has been the drawn-out five-day game that has them salivating.» —“Cricket makes a comeback in Britain” by Mark Rice-Oxley Christian Science Monitor (Boston, Mass.) Aug. 25, 2005.
