What is the T20 Word Cup?
Twenty-20 is a form of cricket with shortened games in which two teams each have an innings. Each entry is limited to a maximum of 20 balances, hence the name Twenty Twenty. It is one of three internationally recognized forms of cricket. The average match lasts around two and a half hours, which is much shorter than most cricket matches. The idea is to bring cricket matches closer to the most popular sports calendar, appealing to casual cricket fans.
T20 cricket has become a hit. Since its inception in 2002, more and more fans have joined the fast-paced competition. The first competitive matches were between local English teams in 2003 and fans started to adopt this form of cricket. In 2007 India had T20 leagues which had the most popular cricket league. The T20 internationals also took off and 2007 saw the inaugural World Cup, with India emerging victorious.
