T10 - Will it help or hurt Cricket?

T10 is here to stay. They marketed the hell out of it and this cricket format is currently being played in Abu Dhabi in its second (i think) edition.

What are your thoughts on it so far? Pooran and Gayle, Afridi still bowling economical as always. I would hate to be a bowler out there, just saying!

Yikes!

 

Seems like plan is to make the format smaller for quicker shot of entertainment. But is this the format that makes Cricket more marketable across the world? Perhaps in Olympics one day? Or is this a format which will hurt Cricket in the long run as the viewers' visual stimulation isn't achieved as highly in t20, ODIs or test cricket as much?

What are your thoughts on it?
