I think a world series should be started with 10 non test playing teams
The format should be:
- 40 overs or 35 overs
- Two groups of 5 teams
- each will play home and away three matches then the semis and finals
- It would extend for 5 months
- It would be only for these non-test playing teams.
3 home and away matches in group stage, best of three semi finals and finals.
Following would be a game between the winner of this and the winner of the ICC World Cup.
It will have big budget proper marketing and coveraged around the world by reputed channels, and each team will play only 6 matches per month 3 at home country and 3 away country.
The 3 Finals will be in selected grounds around the world
it will help talents from these countries like Ryan Ten Doeschate ,Dockrell to get recognition
teams will be grouped so dat they req min travelling.......we will get sponsors no doubt..icc will itself be the biggest sponsor and we can rope in sachin tendulkar,ganguly,mcgrath as ambassadors
the tv audiences will not get bored
bcoz of a new format called Pro35
16 overs of powerplay
14 ovs of spinplay(cont. spin)
5 ovs of freeplay
match length 4hrs 30 mins
the jersey designs and tv graphics and presentation will be awesome and stadium facilities improved
Matches will be held only on wed/sat/sun
