It would make T20 what it probably was meant to be in the first place. Cricket equivalent to Rugby sevens.
    That's what I'd love to see.

    That would indeed overwhelmingly be the best course of action. However, it is pretty much OOTQ, given that those Twenty20 lovers want to see their team play Twenty20 instead of ODIs, and various people at the ICC Board want a Twenty20 World thingy. They are not in a sufficient minority for these things to be disposed of.

    Cricket australia shelved the SPL,looking to expand the big bash now.
    With the ftp coming out looks unlikely for the series now.
