ICC World Twenty20

The ICC World Twenty20 tournament is to be held every 2 years.

It has been suggested that T20 cricket be played in the Commonwealth Games in Delhi in 2010. The BCCI was originally reluctant to commit to playing the short form of the game, but has recently been more endearing to the idea since it has started the Indian Premier League.
