Twenty20 world champs on the cards

Cricket is set to have a new global tournament with the creation of a Twenty20 World Championship. News24 reports that at a board meeting of the International Cricket Council in Dubai officials agreed to the creation of an invitational Twenty20 World Championship in 2007. Participation at a Twenty20 event in 2009 will be mandatory. According to the ICC several members are strongly in favour of including a Twenty20 World Championship in the next round of ICC events, while other members are not as enthusiastic. Hence the two-stage introduction. Pioneered in the professional game at county level in England, Twenty20 has proved popular with spectators around the world.
