    It is a T20 World Cup. So it is a World Cup.

    It's actually not. It's commonly referred to as that, but it's not really a World Cup any more than the Champions Trophy is.

    The problem is TNT trying to use this semantic fact to devalue it somehow. Everything that makes a World Cup important and prestigious applies to this tournament as well, even if it's technically not one.

    Fair enough PEWS. I'll add to that. The prestige of a tournament doesn't go by the name it is called. T20 World Cup or World T20 has been going on for a decade now. It has slowly gained importance and reputation. Call it by whatever name, it doesn't really matter.

    Can you point out where I tried to devalue the World T20 simply by referring to it by the correct name. As a moderator I expect you to back this up or accept that you are lying.

    This definitely sounds like devaluing it to me:

    It is semantics, unless you are trying to devalue it based upon the name. So, there.

    hahahaha holy **** I just saw Lawson's comments. good god

    “Samuels is tied up with some pretty shady people back in the West Indies, he’s a guy you don’t muck around with on or off the field. He’s tied up with the gangs there and it goes well beyond cricket”
