    Twenty20 World Championship vs Cricket World Cup

    With both the tournament being next year and as twenty20 become normal part of cricket, consider the following questions: Which one will have more value? How is the twenty20 world championship going to be better then the cricket world cup? How's the cricket world cup better then the tewnty20 championship? What will be better overall?

    Cricket World Cup will have more value in the eyes of the players and the proper cricket fans but I think the average person just getting into cricket will probably value Twenty20 more because of the action, pace and lack of one sided games.

    so since 20/20 will genarate more peoples interest shouldn't its championship be the #1 tournament...you know how they say right now the world cup is crickets most valueble trounament and champions trophy is crickets #2 tournament...well should twenty20 be the # tournament or the main one?

    dont get me wrong im up for the cricket world cup but all these ICC tournaments for the senior players make things confusing to put it prospective...soccer has 1 fifa tournament the world cup and its most valuable but cricket has it all confusing for just average person

    For crying out loud.

    ODI >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> Twenty20

    How many different threads are you going to start about Twenty20?

    Twenty20 isn't real cricket. It's a game in which you swing from your arse in the hope of scoring runs. I would sure hate to be a bowler playing 20 over cricket. They just get murdered.

    Traditional fans are far more important than newcomers to the sport, therefore the ODI World Cup will remain the premier cricketing tournament.

    Good point. I think the most important tounaments are those that attract the most fans and hence, the players think its important as well. After all, to the players, the most important tournament is the one they are most likely to be congratulated the most about for winning it! I think dat makes sense!

    I personally enjoy test cricket and then One day cricket over 20/20 any day.....its more of a contest between bat and ball.....but i still think that next year, the 20/20 WC will be worth watching. For one, its the first ever one...plus 20/20 is exciting!

    Hehe, proper cricket fans don't value the ODI game much anyway.

    question is what is the ultimate prize going to be for cricket in the future...winning the twenty20 world championship or will it be the same with the cricket world cup and 20/20 being a sub tournament...
