Well Manan slags-off ODIs in his own inimitably biased way, so I thought I'd return the compliment.
I've never seen Manan say so much as a single positive word about one-day cricket, even the 60-over stuff.
So I like to ape him when Twenty20 is the subject between us.
It generated a lot of attention, got a lot of people who've never watched cricket, watching, and turned out to have some of the most exciting matches in a long time.
So, obviously, this format was the best for this particular competition, and I thoroughly enjoyed it.
All teams playing each other and the two with the most wins playing the final, still does it for me as to determining the champion.
FTR I am a she.
I think in Twenty20 you could possibly stretch to two groups of 5/6 before the semis and final. But that would then complicate the earlier stage.
Well it depends with the money, it would sort of assure you'd get the top 8 through to the next stage, but you'd get more dead games and more games involving teams like Kenya, Bangladesh, Zimbabwe etc. which wouldn't be as attractive as other games obviously.
For the first stage:
If you had 10 teams make it through you'd have to have 5 groups of 3+
If you had 12 teams make it through you'd have to have 4 groups of 4+ or 3 groups of 5+
