View Full Version : 20twenty cricket limit imposed

April 15, 2006, 04:52 AM

When it comes to Twenty20 cricket, the ICC's approach is simple - it is all about getting the balance right. That idea was behind the recent decision of the executive board to limit the amount of Twenty20 international matches that can be played by any ICC full member to two per home series and three per year.....

But commercialism, while important, must not be the prime consideration in making decisions about the future, and there is another side to the coin that has prompted a degree of prudence.....

..there is still the need to recognise the public's appetite for Twenty20 internationals and that is the idea behind the proposals for a World Championship, which will be voted upon by the ICC executive board when it meets in Dubai on 30 April.
The attractions of an ICC event in this form of the game are obvious: it will be official and therefore allow the winners to call themselves world champions; it will be short with the plan for it to take no more than nine playing days; and it will not be affected by mass unavailability through sides having other commitments.

The profits from such an event are likely to be substantial and the good news for cricket is that the ICC, as a not-for-profit organisation, would plough them back into the game. The same will not be true if such an event is staged by a private promoter............

So i think its better if we can arrange for 2-3 20Twenty against the Zimbo's insteadof ODI's.

no man, we need to improve our rating in odi. bangladeshi cricketers don't need twenty-20. they need to practice longer version of the game.

We need to practice 20Twenty prior to the 20-20 world cup.

i think ashraful and aftab don't need to practice (kidding). i read somewhere that we will have 20-20 league in bangladesh. i think 20-20 cricket will help cricketers to play shots. but we need to focus on staying in the crease for long time. and don't want to fall behind any nation in 20-20. so i think we should have 5 days first class match, oneday and 20-20 in national league. ah if that happens javed omar will open for dhaka in 20-20

If we don't provide our players chance to play twenty20 now, in 2009, we may see them playing it in six-a-side mode, and I am telling you that will be embarrassing.
