Do you think that twenty20 cricket may help make cricket a real global sport? Yes it's played in something like 120 coutries, but considering i know that italy are in the top 30 makes me think a lot... The biggest problems we find here are money and media following.
What do you think would happen if cricket gets into the Olympics? Of course it would be played with the twenty20 format. Like this tournament is proving minnows can try to compete in the shortest version of the game. And if cricket would be an Olympics sport the CONI (sort of the ministry of sports) would invest much more money in cricket, which would produce facilities, and of course better standards of players. And any sport in which italy plays is shown on tv, which would be great.
Italians think cricket is a slow and boring sport. But all my italian friends once understood the basic started liking it. Twenty20 would certanly give them an exiciting view of cricket.
