I have the feeling of seeing scores that say 54 a.o, but hopefully we'll see high scores and so we can learn 20/20 to ger ready for the 20/20 WC in SA 07. Plus I'd like to see which players are going to participate in this event, because i'd like to see the team transactions and the squads for each team.

Its true its a good practice for the next years 20/20 WC but in one sense its gonna do some damage to our batting. players might think a one day match as 20/20 and then we will face real problem.

The question is who is playing in that league? The teams don't sound familiar and I am not sure whether any good players will take part on this tournament.

Hmm...May be our national team players won't take part due to their pride.I remember Ash telling Zim as - Choto Team with whom we finally lost the series.If some of the national team players would participate, it would be good for attracting crowd and for their match practice too.After all, any game is a game and within continuous match practice surely helps.

This is not a tournament organised by BCCB. Just an amateur tournament invloving some para teams.

You got the specie correct alright. Speaking of 20/20, I think we should make it customary like the English to start off a series against a visiting team with a 20/20 match. It's the perfect slogger's warm-up and a crowd puller.
