Live Score Websites of T20 World Cup 2010

ICC World Twenty20 2010 kicks off today (30 April) with New Zealand taking on Sri Lanka and host West Indies playing against Ireland. The 12-team tournament is now the centre of all attention in the cricket world. Fans are expecting a highly entertaining tournament.

Twenty20 is the shortest version of cricket which is time consuming and at the same time, it is full of excitement because of its hard hitting batting. It takes around 3 hours to finish a game in twenty20, and that is why, there are many who believe that this format would be the perfect vehicle to increase cricket’s popularity in Europe and in the US, two important markets that cricket is yet to explore. Twenty20 cricket was first introduced in England in 2003 and initially it was nothing but a fun game. The main objective of introducing this format was to bring more crowds at the stadiums in England. Now, it seems that the format worked well not only for English cricket, but also for world cricket. However, people should understand one thing is that there should have a balance between test and T20 cricket. Otherwise, test cricket will be extinct and noting can be more dangerous for cricket than that.

Twenty20 world cup 2010 is the third edition of this tournament. The inaugural edition took place in South Africa in 2007 where India became the first champion of world twenty20. After two years in 2009, Pakistan clinched the title defeating Sri Lanka in the tournament final in England. Pakistan played in the final on both occasions. This year the tournament is going to be hosted by West Indies who organized the 2007 world cup (ODI) successfully.

Matches will be held at three venues: St Lucia, Barbados and Guyana. Cricket fans are now eagerly waiting to see their favorite teams on the field. It is a tournament where you will be tired of counting the number of fours and sixes hit by the batsmen. It is a tournament where a dot ball will give you the same pleasure or tension that you can get from a four or six. This bat-and-ball war will reach at the peak in this tournament where the course of a match can change after every few overs. The format is very fast where players need to think first as well as move first. In the recently concluded IPL, I saw that a number of captains were punished for slow over-rate. It proves that there is no time for thinking for the players during the game. Players just need to go on field and start performing. This is the simple rule to survive in this format.

Twelve teams are divided into 4 groups and each group contains 3 teams. In the group stage, each team will play against other group members in a round robin league system. Two teams on the basis of points achieved will go into the Super Eight round. In Super Eight, teams will be divided into 2 groups of four teams each, and from each group 2 teams will progress to the semi final. Winners of the semi final round will meet in the tournament final on 16 May 2010.

Well, it is true that a number of television channels are going to cover the tournament, but still many cricket fans may miss the live action due to their personal or professional works.
