n.— «Twenty20 cricket slipped between the covers. Also termed as “slam bam” cricket by many, the shorter version of the game started gaining currency till purists came up with almost the same arguments, batsmen will rule, bowlers will be irrelevant etc. ODIs brought new levels of fitness , tighter bowling and generally better batting to the game and greatly influenced Test cricket in the way they produce results.» —“Limited Edition” Times of India June 18, 2007.
