World T20 Champions will have the Crown for Only 10 Months


London, Jun 8:  Whosoever wins the World Twenty20 will be the title holders for a mere 10 months. There is no doubt that this rather diminishes the prize on offer.

It seems hardly worth the bother. The winners and indeed everybody else must go through it all again next April in the Caribbean.

ICC has the intention of holding the World Twenty20 every two years. The World Cup will be held every four years as it has been since 1975, as will a newly revamped Champions Trophy, according to a report in The Independent Sunday.

The Champions Trophy might go through a complete overhaul. This may involve it being played at one venue - possibly Dubai where it has its headquarters and where there are two state-of-the-art stadiums - with either 50 overs, but more probably Twenty20 as the chosen form.

That would mean highly prestigious international Twenty20 tournaments being played three years out of four.
