The Australian reported Stanford had approached Australia last year for a week-long Twenty20 knockout also involving India, South Africa and Sri Lanka. The winners would then take on the Stanford Super Stars, a West Indian XI consisting of the best players in the inter-island domestic Twenty20 tournament. The West Indies board met the ICC last week to discuss the event and the issues of payment and the countries involved.

I guess they are looking for teams with big hitters. Which I don't think SL and India have a lot of. I think NZ have a better chance of winning 20/20 than SL or Ind. I guess they chose SL cuz they made it to the final and India for money.

Not only big hitters, 20-20 needs effective bowlers who can take wkts under pressure. In this regard, I guess the 20-20 ranking at present is

1. Australia
2. South Africa
3. New Zealand
4. West Indies
