    Why does Pakistan play so many useless T20Is instead of ODIs?

    World Cup is next year, what's the point of so many useless bilateral T20I series for Pakistan? Not only they tire out player for ODIs and tests, they also give players false sense of pride that they have become great. Shouldn't Pakistan focus on 5 match ODI series to prepare for WC next year instead?

    What are you going on about?

    They just played 5 ODIs vs Zimbabwe & will play 5 ODIs vs South Africa, Australia, and England before the World Cup.

    Itís simple. They canít play ODI cricket, it requires endurance. Technically sound play. Having the ability to hold your nerve.

    20 overs is shorter and only need to do it for a short period of time. While in the one day arena itís not the same.

    Pakistan does not have it in them to go long and hard.

    Why are they useless? Is it some sort of Indian fascination with what Pakistan does in its spare time speaking here?

    How? Pakistan is playing 18 ODIs before the World Cup from now. Thatís a lot more than a number of teams.

    Just because Pakistan does really well in T20s and average in ODIs doesnít mean Pakistan is playing more T20s

    I would say the same for India too, I consider T20Is completely redundant as all teams already have T20 leagues. Bilateral T20Is are far too short to have any context. I like T20 leagues but not T20Is. Nothing to do with India. I would rather have a long T20 league like La Liga then 2 match T20I series with B teams.

    ODIs are the only good LOI format. T20 should be kept to leagues.

    Pakistan can't bat long innings and can't bowl long spells. If we lose quick wixkets in T20 no problem a quick 30 - 40 will turn the match around but not in ODIs

    They are going to play 18 ODIs before the World Cup. Plus they will be fresh and have a much needed practice against England in England just before the worls cup.

    I think we should worry about our own players who are going to be half fit, tired and not hungry enough after IPL.

    The benefit of playing these T20's will help our players when it comes to tense chases and nerves as well as crowd pressure. T20's do help with ODI's.

    Agree, IPL will suck out all energy and add to some fitness issues

    Following the success against Zimbabwe, Scotland and Ireland it's about time we organise a 5 match T20I series against Nepal.
