Is the T20 format inherently advantageous for batsmen?

Verdict

T20 is indeed a batsman\'s game. Beginning with the duration and moving on to rules like the freehit, they are all loaded towards the batsmen. It encourages bowlers to bowl containing lines instead of doing what they are supposed to do: take wickets, reinventing their whole purpose, their role in the game.
80 % Defend
20 % Attack
“ Yes T20 is designed in such a way that it holds more advantages for batsmen. ”
“ T20 is a great for bowlers because they are forced to develop their game considering the big payday that it offers. ”
Monish Moorthy: Batsmen have a lesser amount of overs to face but the bowlers still have to take 10 wickets.
Which is why batting sides are taking lesser risks when their batsmen attack. The bowlers may try to bowl to contain but unless they get wickets they face the risk of being hit for runs.
Foram Gosrani: They are forced to train harder and stay fit to play . They have to bowl for just 4 overs in a game which gives them enough time to experiment without going for too many runs. And when they are on song, it is a rewarding game for them.Batsmen have no option but to attack in T20s which means bowlers have options, they could go for wickets or try to contain batsmen. This is also seen when part time bowlers who are shrewd prosper in T20.

very difficult to bowlers injury taken place in this game

bowlers satisfy their captain and coaches wid 2or3 wkts but batsmen need to make those runs within some time and try and make their team win the match or try to get up a score which makes the game easy for them to defend,so bowlers have choice and batsmen don't.....
