    ICC hoping to add further World Twenty20 tournaments to schedule

    ICC hoping to add further*World Twenty20 tournaments to schedule

    The rise of Twenty20 cricket will gather pace with two extra World Cups to be added to the existing schedule by the International Cricket Council as it looks to cash in on the booming popularity of the game’s shortest format.

    Telegraph Sport understands the ICC has opened discussions with broadcasters about organising World Twenty20 tournaments in 2018 and 2022, meaning that the event will be played every two years.
    It'd be the right move

    Oh joy.. more T20. Saying that, one World T20 every 2 years doesn't sound all that terrible.

    So UAE or WI seems most likely for the venue. That ~10 hour difference will probably cost WI though, unless they're willing to cop morning starts :\

    I like it. It got ridiculous when there were two T20 WCs in two years ('09 and '10) but every 2 years works. It also makes the ODI WC, which is every 4 years, feel that little bit more prestigious which IMO it is Whether you like ODIs or not, I think most would acknowledge winning an ODI WC is seen as more difficult. That is different from it actually being a better tournament to watch / more entertaining etc

    Would rather it was added to the Olympics. Better shot at selling the game

    couldn't agree more

    What happens with a T20 world cup every two years is that there is months of preparation before it. The leagues aren't going any where. So every two years, we will be faced with 6 months or so of absolutely no test cricket like we have been seeing. It seems all right to make the argument that it means more important to international T20 rather than club T20. However, it only means more T20 and less of other cricket.

    Yep, and I read somewhere that the IOC is interested. The only stumbling block was the ICC being concerned that it would detract from the prestige of ICC tournaments. I'll try to find that article.

    Oh but the ICC detract prestige from their tournaments well enough on their own.

    Guess they don't want someone else carving the roast.

    I think this is the article I was referring to (or at least the same quotes): ICC chief David Richardson: 'IOC will only consider T20 cricket at the Olympics'
