    How frequent should the World T20 be?

    Interesting article here: Tim Wigmore: Why the World T20 should be played every two years | Cricket | ESPN Cricinfo

    I originally supported the decision to make it every four years, but now I kind of wish there was another one to look forward to in 2018.

    I like it every 3 years. There is already so much cricket that I don't want more T20 cricket. As the importance of T20 cricket increases, the international T20 world cups will hold more importance. I am not sure we need to worry too much about this, which the author ponders over.

    I would also like lesser ODIs. India will keep playing a lot ODIs and very few T20s as more hours means more ad revenues. However, we do not have place for so much cricket all through the calendar year. I do hope to see ODI cricket being wrapped up in a decade or so, any ways.

    2 years was alright for me, but mainly because of the lack of T20Is. If the number of those were to increase then I'm fine with a longer gap in between the World Cups.

    Rebrand it IMO.

    T20 World Championship and it gets decided every two years.
    I'd like to keep it as distinct from the world cup proper as possible.

    Well we essentially have a world ODI tournament every two years (World Cup and Champions Trophy on overlapping 4-year cycles), so I can see why people might want the intervening years to feature world T20 tournaments

    no way, should be 4 years and people should basically do away with international t20 in between.

    Just make it a sorta state-of-origin for t20 players.

    How much money did it make? Half of the grounds were empty and I know it was terribly ran by the BCCI but if it is an earner that can be used to help sustain the global game then 2 years. No point being prudish about it, cricket needs money.

    Article in the OP has the deets.

    Crowds were apparently excellent from the super 10 stage onwards, not sure how true that is.

    wasn't the idea for there to be an ICC event every year? Hence why there was a World T20 in 2009 and 2010

    Don't think so. The 2010 World T20 was meant to be a Champions Trophy, but because the 2008 one in Pakistan got cancelled, they ended up doing a Champions Trophy in late 2009 instead. So they changed the West Indies tournament to a T20.

    Having an ICC tournament every year sort of makes sense though. I'd keep it every two years as others have said.

    Two years was always to my liking. Short game, short reign.

    Every 4 years, ICC to pioneer a double wicket tournament in the remaining year imo.

    Year 1: World T20
    Year 2: Champions Trophy
    Year 3: Double Wicket
    Year 4: World Cup

    The world needs more meme double wicket cricket
