West Indies - 2010

So, did I hear this right? The next T20 World Cup is in 2010? Seriously?!?!

It took 4 or 5 centuries of bat on ball before we got the inaugural T20 World Cup. Then, 2 years later, we got the second T20 World Cup. Now, 1 year later, we'll get the third.

Can anyone else see a problem here? With this current rate of expansion, it won't be long before one T20 World Cup ends and the next day the next World Cup begins?. This is madness. This is pure folly. This is...what's that you say? After the 3rd World Cup it goes back to every 3 years?

Then whats the point of the...why are they...ARGH STOP FUCKING WITH OUR MINDS ICC!

In all seriousness, every 2 years is right on the money. It'd be great if the IPL was also every 2 years (alternating with the WC). It's a fun version of the game but it won't remain that way if we get greedy and gorge ourselves on it.

Personally, I can't wait for the ashes to start. It feels like a lifetime since I've seen good hard fought test cricket.

I guess the overkill of T20 has taken its toll on you considering we recently witnessed top notch test cricket during the SA-AUS test series in Australia and South Africa.

The ashes are definitely a welcome change from the T20s.

As I mentioned though, that great test clash feels so long ago now. I'm totally amped for the leave outside off stump.

The 2010 tournament in the Windies was supposed to be a champions trophy, but since the 2008 champs trophy got pushed ahead to 2009, the ICC changed the 2010 one to a World T20.

It would have made more sense to have scrapped the 2008/09 champs trophy altogether instead of having a world T20 in 9 months!
