Why T20 cricket is surreal, reason #2459: England and West Indies play a match yesterday June 15 in which 28.2 overs, or 170 legitimate balls, were bowled. Several players make significant contributions to the game, with bat and ball. England's Bopara scores 55, for example.
Then there's Ramnaresh Sarwan of the West Indies (I'm a fan of this guy, incidentally). Faced 9 balls near the end of the match, scored 19 runs. For that, he is adjudged the Man of the Match.
