Scheduled for September 2007.
I can't think of anything more...rubbish.
It suits New Zealand to a tee however; with only two tests in the next 17 months, we will eventually forget how to bat for more than 50 overs and employ one-day tactics all the time. Rather than the 'Black Caps', the team will become 'One Day Caps', and so forth.
Its obvious: Martin Sneddon wants us to win the first ever Twenty20 World Cup. The ICC World Cup is simply an annoyance. The real money is in Twenty20 - fast bowlers, fast batsmen and a fast crowd. Everything is just fast. Even the commentators.
"In sport, the first round of the Twenty20 World Cup was staged today. Ireland beat Australia, Zimbabwe smashed India and New Zealand drew with the USA... The ICC has announced plans to stage a Ten10 World Cup, thinking the intiative would further develop one-day cricket. Furthermore, the ICC has officially cancelled all test match scheduling for the next 10 years. New Zealand was apparently indifferent, mainly because they didn't have any tests scheduled anyway."
